For people who are getting a data plan anyway and plan to keep the plan long term this might be a good option. My only concern would be is being stuck with the same tablet for 2 years. Or at least if you do get a new tablet you will be paying full price for your next one.

For all the people who were saying that Verizon would not have a contract price for the tablets and they were sure you were obviously flat out wrong. I got a lot of heat for mentioning that people who were saying they knew for sure were incorrect. I mentioned that Verizon could change what they had done in the past for the Xoom, but I was ridiculed for that.

So be careful of all these people here who proclaim to know everything. Use your own common sense when it comes to these things. My common sense tells me to wait on the Xoom, but if I was buying one know I would buy from Costco and not on contract.

They really should have included a $699.99 with 1 year contract option. I honestly would have considered that one, but there's no way I'm locking into a 2 year agreement.

with the minimum 20 bucks a month, it turns out to be 840 before taxes and fees. Anyone know how much the taxes and fees are? Have we seen data rates for LTE?

I think you meant $480, but I don't know how much the taxes and fees on data-only would be.

As for the LTE data rates, we haven't seen those yet, except for USB modems. Those prices actually decreased by $10 per month compared to the comparable 3G plans for USB modems. Who knows, but obviously we should find out pretty soon.

Does anyone know if corporate discounts with VZW apply to monthly data plans?

I have a 20% corporate discount on a VZW family plan with 5 lines. The 20% discount only applies to the primary line, so I save on the Talk & Text family shared minutes plus 20% off the $30 unlimited data for my OG Droid.

Will I receive a 20% discount on the tablet data plan? It would be nice to get 3GB for $28 per month.

Based on information from BB and VZW, yes. But there have been people saying that you don't.

However, from what I understand, if you cancel your data plan within 3 days of getting your Xoom, you will get your activation fee as well as the prorated amount for your data service back.

On all 3 if my lines the data is discounted so it should be the same thing. Only thing not discounted on my lines is the 10 bucks to add each line. My friend has the galaxy tab and same discount. Pays 16 bucks a month for the 1gb plan.

As fast as technology is changing in this field a 2 year contract scares me. I wonder when support will stop for the device. Updates? I mean phones don't even get a year's worth of updates anymore....

so you came to say "I told you so?" no wonder you catch a lot of heat from members here.

I will still get it at full price. A two-year contract scares me also. I'm already in contracts with T-mobile & Clear.

You're such a negative little man. I have yet to come across a helpful contribution from you. Run along now.
LoL. No thanks, I will just stick around. Sorry if that cramps your superiority complex.

Well you have been thanked one time, good going on that one post of yours worthy of a thank!

That's what you have for me, a "dis" on my thank rating. lol.

All I have read from you over the past few days in negativity.

"waaaa, the xoom doesnt have... (insert your numerous complaints here)"

Look, we all get it. You are displeased with it. Get over it. Move along, wait for something else. Your negativity isn't welcomed here.
