    Exclamation XOOM Minimum Advertised Price - $799! Will you still buy it? [POLL]



    According to androidcentral the MAP for the XOOM is set at a hefty $799! This isn't a final price, but still indicates that the tablet will cost an arm and a leg. This is probably an unsubsidized price, though. On contract, it will probably cost less. This doesn't seem to compete very well with the iPad, but there's still hope that a wifi version might cost less!

    So, what say ye'? Will you still buy one, or is the price a deal breaker for you?

    Definitely a deal breaker if I even wanted one.
    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.

    I honestly dont think there is any way it will cost that much. Maybe full retail, but in that case they are going to have to have some type of subsidized price (which will still hurt sales). Yes the ipad has an $830 model, but has lower end models that start at $499.

    I called it, I said 800 dollars and sure enough. Definitely a deal breaker for me. I will go ahead and buy myself a new laptop now.

    Apparently they didn't learn from the Galaxy tab, which has since lowered prices twice I believe. People will buy this no matter the price unfortunately though. 800 bucks for a tablet is just far too expensive IMO. I can pay another 200 bucks and buy a Macbook or well made windows laptop. I am sure this tab will be awesome, just not that awesome.

    Hell no. I can buy a decent laptop and a good desktop for that much. I will stick with my droid x. I did want one.

    Why would they subsidize a product that only comes with WiFi for connecting to the internet? Verizon can't lock us into a contract if the product doesn't even support 3G or LTE service. Of course if they also have a different version that offers both, then that would be a different story. So far I've only heard of the WiFi version.
