    A staples ad confirms that the wifi only silver xoom will be $599. I think sams club might have it for $539.

    Wow. I was actually about to post "How long until the Apple kool-aid drinkers post that the Xoom sucks because there's no 16gb model?" but you beat me to the punch.

    I will probably return mine and exchange it for a WiFi model, although I'm not certain. I disconnected my data plan when I realized how easy it is to just connect it to my Droid X via Bluetooth and use that data connection...

    I don't want a silver back though, I like the all black.

    Yes as long as your Wifi is encrypted. For me any tablet that I am getting , it is only going to be wifi only.

    I had thought about that as well, but then again is it slower than the 4G?

    This will be a good thing for the Xoom. It can't come soon enough.

    My biggest worry now is that all of the good ROM's will not support the CDMS/LTE model.

    Well, I purchased my 3G Xoom at Best Buy on 2/26/2011, and as a Sliver Reward Member I have 45 days to return it... so I have until 4/12 to make a decision.

    I did activate 3G on March 5 on the month-to-month 1GB plan because I thought I'd want to have connectivity for the rare times I'm not in a WiFi area, so I'd have to weigh my needs... decisions, decisions ...

    You know. I'm an android fan, I won't ever buy an IOS device, but releasing an unfinished device, just 1 model. Seriously. I'll buy a Xoom when they make a version for me, but the 1 version they have out now isn't for me. Don't write about me being a hater. This is a forum and I'm expressing my opinion. I'm sorry you don't like me not wanting to spend $800 on a 3G version of the Xoom.

    I had alot of expectations for the xoom after CES, and I've been let down quite a bit. And its just a leaked advertisement. Who is to say it might not be another month or three before it is released.

    I mean the perfect example is that people are going to return their 3G version and get a wifi version.

    4G isn't here yet. Plus, I'll get a 4G phone as soon as 4G is available in SLC and so I'll get it that way.

    I asked the Bestbuy salesman and he said they had to honor the Verizon return policy which is 14 days even though their usual return is 30days and 45 for card.

    They also said the Verizon corporate store was the only one that could sell it at $599 on the 1gb data contract. Bestbuy has a teired data program, the 1gb data plan gets $50 off $799, the 3gb and 5gb would get $150 off and the 10gb plan would be $599.

    I guess things will get interesting if I decide to return the Xoom, because I have nothing in my paperwork to indicate the Xoom can only be returned using Verizon's policies. My receipt indicates I have 45 days to return it, both on the front using the information from my purchase, and on the back in the pre-printed information.

    I was just thinking the same thing. I reviewed my receipt to make sure and you are correct. If I decide to return mine to go get a WiFi only model, there will be a battle that I will not let them win.

    I'm going to assume flash will be working out of the box, haven't heard when they will have the SD card working, and why 16GB?

    Most likely it will have flash as adobe said flash is officially coming the 18th, and sd will take a bit longer as google needs to make a software update for that. I doubt they will come with a 16gb model. The price is same compared to ipad2 32 gb.

    16G because it'd be cheaper and I'm just going to through in my own memory. I'm cheap. I don't think they'll ever come out with a 16G, so its one of the things i'll have to settle on is the 64G. I really hope the wifi version comes out this month. I'm hoping to get one for Father's Day / Birthday ish. Can't really justify in my budget a $600 tablet unless it is for something.

    Yea, as of yet tablets haven't reached a point where they can totally replace a laptop or computer. Tablets are more of a supplement or luxury.
