I am waiting for a WiFi version, I have a MiFi w/ 10GB of monthly allowance so I really don't need a contract but who knows. Still having the option out of the gate would be more appropriate but given how Moto is so intertwined with Verizon it could be months.
This is why apple does have market share on the tablet market, they don't let the carriers dictate, they do. Then again I don't like the fact that they can get away with that BS either.
A lot of people, including myself, would rather get a WiFi only version and I do hope we see it sooner than later. But I'm going to be honest about something. I went into my local Verizon yesterday and I saw at least 3 people in line getting signed up for the 2 year contract and buying a Xoom. They were pushing it like crazy, and it seemed to be working. I'm not saying this this is going to be a huge seller, but I'd be hard pressed to believe it's a flop either.
