    I work for a school.
    An Apple rep is sending us an iPad and a macbook to loan for 2 weeks. I also have been given a Dell Streak 7 from Dell to test out.
    We are looking at some options to go to a 1:1 with laptops/pads.

    I want to know what company I can contact to get a XOOM loaner with the possibility of buying close to 100 in the coming year.

    Any ideas are appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.
    Jay

    I would contact moto directly.
    The source should be able to give the biggest discount.

    I dont know - but hope they cut you a deal. I contacted Apple about buying 50 iPads for our work and wanted a discount. They said no. The guy at Apple store said they dont do discounts because "as you and i were talking they just sold 150 more ipads". But he put me in touch with a bulk/corporate sales person who told me same thing.

    Post back if you get a bulk discount as i would still be interested in a bulk purchase.

    Do you really expect Verizon, who makes you pay for a data plan to unlock wifi on a devise you paid 800.00 for, will give you what you are asking for?......don't hold your breath :)

    Off topic, I know, but this is from my Apple rep regarding bulk orders:

    We have 10 pack pricing on iPads that reduces the price by $20 per iPad. We also have 5 packs of MacBooks and MacBook Pros that reduce the price by $25 per device. Also if the volume is large enough..$50K+...I can ask Finance for an additional discount. The amount of the discount that gets approved varies, but I think I could get another 5% on Macs, but not iPads.

    Your saying that on the xoom if you don't activate a data plan the wifi doesn't work? Even if you buy the device outright?

    Op, I know that the pricing on those are really high even for resellers but if your buying that much I don't see why Motorola wouldn't give you some sort of discount this doesn't make sense unless Verizon has something to do with it.

    Fyi regarding the Xoom, Verizon has dropped the one month activation for wifi tablets. Their press release was on phandroid and engadget.
