    Now this is how you do it, Motorola! Hopefully it's not too good to be true.

    That's "Homeycomb 2.0" to be exact.


    But anyway, how can this be priced almost 300 dollars less than the 3G/4G capable one? Doesn't make any sense. Since this won't be locked and not required a 2 year contract you are paying a significant amount more just to have carrier data. This price is good but confirming that the current model is way overpriced.

    placeholder price similar to how best buy had $1200...or that's with a 2 year contract.

    Yeah makes the 3g/4g price even more absurd.

    This may be exactly what you need because I know you couldn't justify the cost between it and the iPad but if this price is anywhere near right you won't have to justify it anymore

    If this turns out to be the true price of the wifi Xoom, I'm pretty sold on it, unless the Tab 10.1 comes along at the same price, since it's a fair bit less weighty.

    For $250 less, I'd really have to consider returning my 3G/4G Xoom. I mean, I do like having the capability, but...

    Exactly. If true, I don't see how you can price the 3g/4g that much higher.

    I mean its all rumor right now but I have to agree. That's a huge increase for 3g/4g.

    I'm with you on that one....I would really have to think that over. I like the 3g/4g but I have yet to leave my house with it.

    I basically just want to replace my laptop for casual browsing/computing while watching the tube. Wifi would be all good for that.

    Only problem --- I've never been to a Sam's Club --- I assume you need to be a member like Costco.

    Anyone know if there is a date on this --- not sure if it will fall within my 14 days to return.

    Isn't Sams club the same as Costo? Couldn't this possibly be the same way at Costco?

    They are the same thing basically. Big bulk stores. I bet Costco gets it too.

    yea i would hope so. Since wal-mart owns sam's club i bet they get them as well.

    I'm a member at both and the odd thing is that they never sell the exact same stuff. Usually slightly different models. So no surprise that only one will get the WIFI only version. Might be time to hand down my iPad. Sams is owned by Sam Walmart so maybe all the Walmart stores will get it.

    Good call. I don't see why WalMart wouldn't carry them.
