Two separate reports indicate that the Motorola Xoom might be launched as early as the 14th of February, the first day of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Amazon has listed a non-official Bluetooth keyboard for the Motorola Xoom which will be in stock from 14 February. This could mean that the tablet will also be available from that date.
In addition, Phandroid reports that Verizon may formally announce the Xoom at Mobile World Congress based on a tip from anonymous sources.
The Motorola Xoom will be the first tablet to arrive on the market with Android 3.0 Honeycomb, which is also the first version of the Google Mobile platform that has been aimed specifically at tablet devices.
Presented at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, it comes with a buttonless frame and a dual core ARM-based Nvidia Tegra 2 processor.
Other Android-based tablets scheduled to be launched later this year include the LG G-Slate (or Optimus Pad) and the HTC Flyer.
