    I just saw this too... curious to see if they stick to the $799 price tag.

    Best buy will be selling it for 699.99. Still pretty high to me though.

    699 through best buy. I will guarantee this thing flops. People should by a laptop instead junk made by moto. I wish all the worst to moto.

    I really wonder where people's heads are at. The 32GB iPad is $729...the Xoom is LESS money and does MORE!!

    Can I design web pages, and use high end programs like photoshop, indesign, dreamweaver and flash on the xoom or ipad. No. But I can buy a laptop for less that can run these high end programs, and more! Xoom=Fail.

    Oh so you're comparing a FULL COMPUTER to a TABLET! I'm sorry I misunderstood. The tablet was designed for one thing: Mobility. So people can ACCESS the web and some quick applications on the go. It is NOT intended to REPLACE a COMPUTER. Besides, no one says you need to buy one. But understand the uses before you dis a product.

    I just wish they would release a WIFI version at the same time they release the 3G version. A WII/16gig version for about $450.... SOLD.

    Sorry, I am not trying to bring any negativity here. If people want to by a Xoom go ahead, I apologize. I just think these companies are ripping us off with these tablet prices. Also Moto has left a bad taste in my mouth. Mobility to access the web and quick applications, you can do that with any lower priced smart phone, or better priced tablet out today. I have a rooted nook color and it is just as capable as a lot of these tablets. It was only $250 and is a top tier tablet. Dual core and Honeycomb are good selling points but not for $799. Remember it will also have a locked bootloader.

    So, everyone is OK in paying about $920 ($200 + data at $29.99/mo) over two years for a smartphone, or $550-600 for the phone itself with no contract, but you're not OK with spending $700-800 for a Xoom with no contract? Yeah, that makes A LOT of sense.

    Whatever, I hope the 2/17 date sticks, since I'm getting one on launch day.
