    $800 for a 10 inch tablet... Someone help me.. I could get a REALLY nice laptop for less than that and wireless tether it to my phone for free (rooted). I just don't get the tablet hype.
    Choices always were a problem for you

    that xoom better not truly be $800 or it will be another galaxy tab. yes it sold well, but they brought the price down in 2 mos. it could've done better if priced right. i can almost guarantee you the iPad 2 won't be more than $600. I think $600 is the mark for 3g/4g tabs and $500 for wifi.

    Yes, and no. The high end iPad is $830. And there is no WiFi only version of he Xoom to compete with the lowest priced iPads, yet.

    So Motorola will be competing against Apple on the high end of the market instead of the low end. Bit of a role reversal there.

    You're right, actually. I was basing my pricing on the wifi iPad since I don't do 3G on it (tether off my Incredible instead). They are right in line on 3G.

    Thanks for the catch.

    I am just saying... for $800 and a 2 year contract to boot... I could get a laptop that would outperform the tab in every way, be bigger screen, whatever... and I could do it for less money and have no contract.

    Don't get me wrong, the nerd in me wants a tablet.. i really do.. but I just can't figure out a good reason to do it.

    I am going to assume here.. $800 fot the tablet adn $30 a month for 2 years for a data plan.. that's $1520. When I see numbers that big I think.. 50" + TV, Xbox, furniture, landscaping, maid, quad monitor PC (yes I would use that), BEER, etc.... I just can't bring myself to get one.

    My guess is it'll be subsidized down to 400 or 500 with a contract.
    $600 for a phone is more ridiculous than 800 for a tablet IMO.
