Motorola Xoom priced at $800

motorola xoom pricing

Multiple leaks from Verizon point to a $800 Minimum Advertised Price for the Xoom, the upcoming tablet from Motorola. The Xoom is the highly anticipated Android device that'll be running Honeycomb, the latest version of Android. This likely means it will be unsubsidized, available without contract, since the same sheet points to a much lower $250 price for the HTC Thunderbolt. Still, this is quite a high price for a tablet, especially when compared with the market leader right now, the iPad, so it's a bit of a surprise. The price will likely go down over time, and deals might be announced (like lower prices with data plan subscription,) but the high cost may impact the Xoom's success.

OMG they are totally unrealistic. They wont get half that price me thinks.

I looked at one of these at Costco yesterday....nice looking, but too expensive. Ipad 2 all the way baby.

Saw that the Blackberry Playbook came out today. I wonder if BB can make a comeback.

Yikes, reviews on the playbook not all that great. Seemed like they had quite the hype a few months ago, faded now with iPad 2 killing it.

Thanks for sharing price for Motorola Xoom

This seems...prohibitive. I agree with Chris--maybe up to $500. You could get a really nice laptop for that price...

This is crazy . I would get on if it is around $400.

I noticed this on engadget. Probably they lost their minds.

i m happy to watch this

That device one of the best Android device but i wonder who would consider paying $800 for that.Is it really worth it?
