    Had they just omitted the things that don't work, then the Xoom may have released at a reasonable price.

    Instead you are "future-proofing" for no reason. If you want all those features why pay such a high premium when you could just wait until a tablet releases that actually has those features working??

    You buy the iPad 2 and you are not paying for anything that doesn't yet work.

    Hee-Hee. I didn't pay any more for my zoom than an iPad2 and it has more features, more resolution, faster processing. etc. So I guess the joke is on someone else.
    Why do you think the Xoom has a faster processor? iPad has a dualcore 1ghz processor that is made specifically for iOS...

    Ah the old move the goal posts ploy. Sorry I'm not playing. Where's there iPad's Flash, usb, sdcard? Why do ipadders have to purchase every app through iTunes and give stevo a cut of the profits, why?

    To get back to the thread topic. The Xoom is NOT overpriced, particularly considering the competition.

    Aren't the flash and sdcard slot somewhat broken on the Xoom?

    Why do you need flash anyway? YouTube works on iPad.

    Why doesn't the Xoom have facetime, a full movie editing suite, ladida and many other things the iPad has? For the premium you pay, you'd think it would least match those things AND add more. Not just have different features.

    Back to the topic about it being overpriced... The iPad is the clear market leader and the elephant in the room that sets the pricing for the entire market. To be so much higher than the widely accepted leader is downright ridiculous.

    Sorry but you just wrong. Flash is a primary method of delivering web content.

    Tablets are not meant to be video (or audio or music) creation/editing workstations I don't know why anyone would even consider it. Dumb idea.

    As far as market leader. Things have just changed. Android is the leader and the Xoom has more and better features than your so-claimed market leader which is held together with glue and double stick tape.

    Flash used to be, but not anymore. The fact that Adobe has a Flash to HTML5 dev kit should tell you Flash days are numbered. Flash is old school. It's power consumption and bloatware does not work well with mobile devices. Apple made the right move banning Flash from iOS.

    Android is not the leader... I will bet you anything that iPad2 sells more in month one than the Xoom will total.

    I am willing to bet the iPad2 outsells all other tablets combined this year...


    It's funny that you say tablets aren't for editing and blah blah blah. But then you talk about flash delivering content... All the content flash delivers is either superfluous, able to be delivered via other methods (HTML5), or is just childish. (Slap Obama, win an iPad!!) Lol.

    So watching flash crap is important, but actually creating web content is dumb. Ok, I get it. It's only dumb if you can't do it...

    Just pulled the trigger and ordered my Xoom Wifi on Amazon

    little pricey, and I was always against tablets, but considering how much time I listen to music and watch video it makes sense to me.

    Great roadtrip companion too

    Sorry but you clearly DON'T get it.

    Let's check back next spring and see where the market is.. particularly since Android is already in the lead.

    I'll say it once more-Xoom is certainly not overpriced given its market leading specs!

    Android is not in the lead by any stretch... I don't know where you got that misinformation. iPad outsold every tablet combined last year... Meaning more iOS tablets than Android, and since the Xoom is the only tablet with Honeycomb... NVM......
