Moto Tablet: Should I Wait?
So CES is coming up and there will be a ton of info on the Motorola Tablet I bet.
So I doubt it will be released with in a couple weeks of CES. Buuuuut do you think it's going to be contract 3G/4G model at the cell phone stores (most likely) and then roughly 6 months later a Wifi-only version maaaybe.. So 8-12 months a Wifi-version only that I can purchase should I just say F'it and go with something else? I don't want a 3G/4G version because I don't want it on my cell phone bill I only need a Wifi VerisionHTC Rezound, IPad2, and Galaxy Tab 10.1

I think it's hard to say. Verizon and Motorola are in bed together so I'd bet my bottom dollar that this Moto Tablet will be available on Verizon with some sort of monthly data plan. As far a WiFi only version, I've heard they will have it and I've heard they won't -- it's all speculation. Your best bet is to wait and see what they give us at CES and go from there.

Well it will have Wifi but I want a Wifi-only version no 3G data plan hardware in it. Ipad has a wifi-only version.
They are usually cheaper and I don't want the month to month contract or whatever they will do with this Tablet.

From what I read, the MOTO TAB is going to raise the roof for Tabs. I would wait. I would get a tab with that kind of power. I am not interested in a large android device, as my X foots that just fine. Honycomb Moto tab? I may drop with that?★★★★★

I'm telling you what, if AC doesn't provide me with one to take a look at I'm beginning to wonder if I'll be going back on my promise to myself that I'd never drop more than $400 for a tablet (assuming this thing is over $400)

I can't wait to see more of this tablet too! I think my wife wants it more than me everyday she asks if they have a release date yet. I just really hope there's a wifi only model I pay enough for two droid phones,internet and cable I don't need another data plan for something im going to be using on the sofa and in bed. Then again they just want to wrap people into another contract and make that money. I think I speak for alot of people that a wifi only version out of the gate would be KILLER! We shall see...

What is the advantage of the G-Slate over the Xoom? Anything besides the Nova?
It seems the tablets are all relatively close in specs, and I've landed on the Xoom based on availability (first we think) and the vanilla honeycomb OS.Sprint Evo 4G

I wont be purchasing anything motorola soon. I had been a loyal motorola customer since the early 90, and the products and service that they have provided in the 00 era have had nothing much to offer me. I have been much more satisfied with htc products and I will be waiting for them. Motorola would still have me as a customer if they just stood behind their product line like they used to..... even tho they did not have the best products they stood behind fixing or replacing them. But it seem they no longer do that. JUST my 2 pennies

One can assume 3.0 will eventually find it's way on the HTC platform, but there is no telling what will happen or when it will happen.
If you want Honeycomb in the first half of this year, it's a good bet the only game in town will be the XOOM.
