Price cuts seem to be the latest trend, designed to attract attention, in the tablet market - Motorola has priced its Xoom tablet at $379, $120 less than the standard Xoom.

The price cut comes after Hewlett-Packard triggered frenzy in the tablet market by cutting the price of its TouchPad to $99.

The Family Edition version of the Xoom comes with 16GB of storage and brings along a bundle of apps, worth $40, and Zoodle, a safe mode for children.

“After the kids fall asleep, Motorola XOOM Family Edition lets you get back to work with email access, document-editing capabilities with Quickoffice Pro HD, and Web surfing that looks just like a PC, with tabbed browsing and Adobe® Flash® Player. Then access more than 250,000 other apps, as well as new cloud services from Google Mobile™ Services, Amazon and more, the press release reads.

The tablet runs on a 1GHz dual-core processor and sports a 5 megapixel camera. According to Motorola, the battery offers up to 10 hours of video playback and Web browsing.
