    I believe they dropped the on month charge and you can purchase for wifi only. A quick call to VZW should clarify. Let us know, please.
    Forgive your enemies it messes with their minds!

    You do not need a data plan to buy or use the xoom, wifi works either way. You do however save $200 if you sign up for a two year contact

    $50/month, 5GB cap.

    $50*24=$1200

    So... No real savings there.

    Best Buy, Motorola, and Verizon (I think) all sell the Xoom off-contract. However, if you wait a couple months the WiFi-only version will hit for $600. Also, the Xoom isn't even shipping with the 4G modem, so if you want 4G in the future you'll have to ship it off to Motorola to have it installed at some future date.

    80/mnth for 10gb is actually the max allowance. (Not cap, because they don't turn it off if you go over.)

    No savings if your not using the data, if you are then you save. I'm just tethering off my x, no need for a data plan.
