Great news for those of you holding out for that WiFi-only XOOM of your dreams: Costco has moved up its availability date for the LTE-less version of the tablet from April 1 to this coming Sunday, March 27. So if you walk into your local Costco this weekend, presumably the WiFi XOOM will be there to greet you for the reasonable price of $599.99.

But, if you order online, you'll get a couple of perks (even if it does mean you won't be getting your XOOM on Sunday). Namely, $10 off ($589.99), a free gel skin case, and free shipping. If you can't wait, you can pay $10 more at your brick and mortar location this weekend and let your XOOM go case-less.

    I'm thinking Sammy, first!

    'm almost certain that the wi-fi Xoom will be the same price and include the gel case in-store as well. It doesn't make sense for Costco to offer a better deal online. Stores always have special in-store deals in hopes of customers browsing the store and purchasing additional items. The free gel case is probably just a warehouse club deal since the wi-fi Xoom also comes with a fee gel case at Sam's Club.

    I sent a snapshot of a printout from the store that showed it at $589.99, but Android Police never posted it. I don't understand their protocol so I'm not upset, but I know that at my local costco it's $589.99. They received them yesterday. They wouldn't sell it to me. I cried. ;o)

      I forgot to mention, they had no sign of offering a case with it in their system, but I wasn't looking at their display setup, just their inventory program.

    I bought this today. It's charging now... ;)
