    I am going to hold off on a tablet for a while if only to let the pricing come down to earth a little...although the nook color is going for 200 some places

    I wonder when the wifi only models will be released? Doesn't the $800 non-contract Xooms have wifi?

    Only Select Stores

    I just called my local Sam's which happens to be about 20 miles from Wal-Mart/Sam's Home office and was told that only Sam's Clubs that do NOT carry the iPad and iPhone will carry the Moto Xoom. If your local Sam's Club carries the iPhone or iPad, you WILL NOT have it available. This SUCKS! Dunno if you'll be able to order from a different Sam's Club and have it shipped or not.

    If this is true then perhaps those who want the XOOM, and maybe XOOM fans who aren't buying it, should tell their local Sams that they are not happy with this decision and if this is how they are going to treat their customers then we will not renew our memberships next period. Even if we don't mean it, it might make them think, unless they are under Apple's thumb. I do know that my local Sams only carries Apple MP3 players, so perhaps they are under Apple's thumb.

    You need to read the link that you posted. You will pay a 10% premium above the member $539 price, unless you live in one of the locations that prohibit it. It has been that way the 10+ years that I have been a Sams Club member.

    Yes they are the same as the six hundred dollar contract ones.

    Will the wifi only have GPS is another question.

    Maybe I'm missing something here, but if a nonmember upcharge is 10% ($54 for this version of the Xoom) and a membership is $40... See where I'm going with this? :)

    Yes, you are much better off just getting a membership. You save $12 and then you can use it for the next 12 months in case there are other deals that you want there. Besides, you can go there on the weekends and try all the free food samples for the next year. :)
