    Really want the xoom tablet but at 800 can't do it... and re Ipad2 is HALF that price. While I in no way want an Apple of any kind. Just don't get why xoom would price themselves out of the mkt like that. Ok vent over

    The Xoom is well worth the money. And if you wanna go the cheaper route, just wait till the wifi only version come out.

    I went to the VZW store today and played around with a Xoom. I liked it but for some reason it felt heavier than I would like and not as responsive. However, if I had $800 burning my pocket, I would buy it.

    People keep saying this, but I don't think it's really true. If you compare similarly featured (of course iPad doesn't have sdcard or 4G capability or usb) then the prices are not that different and you get an open system. So there. :)

    viewsonic gtablet has pretty close specs without comparing cell signals(since it only comes in wifi only) for much cheaper. It also has custom aosp roms already.

    Your not comparing equal systems. Apple's $500 iPad is WiFi only and 16gig. The Xoom is 32gb and 3G/4G. So the iPad with 32gig and 3G is $729. So yes the Xoom is $70 more, iPad is NOT half the price. The XOOM also includes USB and a microSD card slot that Apple does not. The XOOM also has better cameras and a higher res display. What Xoom does not have is vast library of tablet only apps. That's gonna take some time.
