    Motorola Xoom $1,199?

    Engadget just posted an artical that the xoom is going up at BestBuy for preorder on the 17. At the not so nice price of $1,199.
    Not sure about everyone else but my hopes where just dashed to the ground.

    Motorola Xoom up for pre-order at Best Buy this Thursday... for $1,199? -- Engadget

    When it was rumored at $800 I felt that that was a little too much too, but I was at least considering picking one up. But at $1,199 ill wait till someone else comes out with something better 3 months from now and at a cheaper price.

    If Motorola truly wants a device to compete with the iPad, there's no way that can be the price point. Doesn't make any sense. I call BS...

    Hopefully it is just a placeholder and they give you back the 400 afterwards. Im okay with the $800 price tag. But 1200?.... Holy crap that's too much. I expect that price for the top tier ipad2

    I think the 64 gb ipad was around $800 when it first came out. I didn't buy one of those either.

    I personally think both prices are a little dumb. Most of the times, when you are trying to enter a market that is already dominated, you have to make something that is better for cheaper. Now I'm much more of an Android fan than Apple, but why would I pay $800 for an Xoom when I can get the iPad 2 coming out shortly for like $300 cheaper.

    Not sure who does their price modeling, and I'm sure you can argue that this Xoom has much better stats (and I already know it does). But for what these tablets are used for, the iPad performs it just fine. I really hope these prices are wrong because I was really wanting to buy a Xoom, they look awesome.

    Motorola should fire the people who wrote the business plan for this tablet =/.
