"According to our friends at Staples, the wifi-version of the XOOM should be making an appearance in their April 3rd ad for the first time. No price was revealed at this time, but we do know that their employees are being informed of the release through online training guides. I know it's not much to go on, but I also know how interested you all are in this less expensive, non-3G edition of the first Honeycomb tablet," revealed the site.

The site also reported late last week that Sam's Club is rumored to be selling the WiFi Xoom for $539, including pictures of an end-cap full of the sleek tablets. It's reasonable to assume that Staples would be selling the device for roughly the same price, although a price of $599 has been thrown around for awhile as well.

Over in the UK the WiFi Xoom will be available at PC World for £499.99. The site lists the release date as "1st week of April," which cooresponds to the Staples' rumor.
