    That is absolutely outrageous. I could get a REALLY nice laptop, that will do more, and run circles around that tablet for $1200.

    I think that they are insane to take what is essentially a glorified phone, without the phone, and charge $1200 for it.

    It isn't worth the $800 they were originally rumored to charge for it.

    When sales suck, they will quickly realize their mistake.

    You can get an iPad for much less, that is proven, has the apps and has a great track record for a lot less than that.

    Motorola is retarded.

    Yeah, I just checked, you can get a Macbook Air, or Macbook Pro for that amount. And on the Windows side of things, $1200 buys you a really kickass laptop.

    I just don't see how they justify the price premium for a new, unproven platform, that doesn't do nearly as much as a laptop...

    Is it just because it is marginally smaller? The cool factor?

    This is a great example of why the Chinese knock these things off and we buy them.

    Yeah, and who can blame them?

    With the economy where it is, do they really think that people are going to shell out over a grand, plus a data plan in order to unlock the wifi port, for what is not much more than a large phone with the phone part removed?

    Motorola has clearly shoot themselves in the foot with this one. Course this should have been expected look at how over priced the docks are for the Atrix. The company just must not understand what competitive pricing means.

    Is Motorola kidding us? My laptop was half that much and it probably does 5x as much. And we are being forced to buy 1 month of data? What? Um... I think HTC is going to see the majority of my business when my New Every 2 comes into effect in a few months.

    I think all tablets are over priced for what their capabilities are, but this one takes the cake. When the ipad2 comes out the first one will drop to 100.00 bucks that's when I'll buy one.

    Come on!!!!!! I hope this isn't true!!!!! If that is the case, then Motorola can forget of having a high sales with this product within its first quarter of sales.

    Engadget updated and said it might just be a price place holder. My thing is....why not make the price place holder something thats not outrageous?
    The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
