    F you Motorola! I will probably still get it but damn them for making it such a tough choice.

    I take it back, read right below the pic:
    "To activate WiFi functionality on this device, a minimum of 1 month data subscription is required"

    It doesn't make any sense, but if this is true I will boycott the Xoom. Extortion is extortion.

    It was rumored to be around this price, so I'm not surprised. *sigh* wish it was cheaper.

    Make it Wi-Fi only, with a ~$500 price tag, and then it'll sell to everybody's satisfaction.

    This will never see a 500 price tag. Look at the galaxy. Its nowhere near the xoom and that's still too much.

    I think this price is a bit much for a tablet. I want a tablet and can afford it, just not sure I want to support this pricetag.

    What is it with Motorola and there pricing? Who do they think they are Apple?!
    I like the Xoom, but out of my price range. $799 is more than I paid for my laptop and it has a 17" screen.
    Wonder of the LG G-Slate is going to be over priced as well.

    Here is hoping my G slate doesn't break the bank unsubsidized.

    I'll probably still get it. At least I won't have to worry about long lines at BB on launch day.

    No way!!! Moto is becoming too full of themselves with that price tag.

    I'll get one to review it but at this point I'm seeing a lot of potential for the G-Slate. If T-Mobile and LG price it right with wifi only models, it could definitely beat the Xoom in terms of sales. I doubt either of these will even dent the iPads market though.

    Why would the average user pick this at $800 over an iPad? Maybe some geeks like us will know the difference, but many of us will be pissed at Moto for this pricetag and lack of options.

    I agree with you. Motorola has done a p--s poor job of differentiating the XOOM to the huddled masses.

    But "lack of options"? Which options are missing? Replaceable battery?

    Which is a real shame, because the Xoom in many ways *does* stand out. Advertising is the key these days...I'd think Verizon (who generally does a fantastic job with it) and Motorola should know better.

    Verizon just did a pretty good job with the iPhone commercial. :-(

    They didn't show off a single working feature. All they did was show how high tech and sexy it looked.

    All that garbage about the masses dressed in white and one guy standing out. There was very little branding. There were no compelling differentiation and you could barely make out what the product looked like.

    Motorola blew it... BIG TIME.

    I understand that the Notion Ink and Viewsonic products are cheaper (in price, specs, and build quality), but let's compare products from reputable companies for a second.

    Dell Streak 7 - 7" screen (800x480), 1Ghz Dual-Core, 512mb RAM, 16gb internal storage, Dell Stage skinned Froyo
    $199.99 plus required 2 year agreement (minimum $24.99 for 200mb) = $799.75 (plus taxes and fees)

    Galaxy Tab - 7" screen (1024x600), 1Ghz, 512mb RAM, 16gb internal storage, Touchwiz skinned Froyo
    T-Mobile - $549.99 full retail or $249.99 plus required 2 year agreement (minimum $24.99) = $849.75 total plus taxes and fees

    Verizon - $499.99 full retail plus $20 (1 month of data) = $519.99

    Sprint - $299.99 plus required 2 year agreement (minimum $29.99) = $1,019.75 (or pay $200 EFT for a total of $529.98)

    iPad 3G 32GB - 9.7" screen (1024x768), 1Ghz processor, 256mb RAM, 32gb internal storage, iOS
    Direct - $729

    Motorola Xoom -10.1" screen (1280x800), 1Ghz Dual-Core, 1gb RAM, 32gb internal storage, Vanilla Honeycomb
    Best Buy - $799.99 full retail plus $20 (1 month of data) = $819.99

    Still seems like a no-brainer to me.
