[LR] Moto Xoom WiFi Edition $599 MSRP

post #1 of 40

“MOTOROLA XOOM is a truly innovative tablet – its design, coupled with being the first tablet to have Android 3.0, results in a user experience that is one-of-a-kind,†said Dan Papalia, vice president of retail sales for Motorola Mobility. “We are now continuing to expand the choices available to consumers with the MOTOROLA XOOM Wi-Fi to be available soon from numerous leading retailers in the United States.â€
The Source

WiFi edition's price isn't as bad as I expected. On the other hand; it's still missing the mark. These tablets should hit $500 or less. If the base price is more it should be for the 3G/4G models which you can get under $500 with a contract.

I dont understand how they can charge the same price as the iPad 2, and not even have to develop the OS. Basically all they're doing is putting some hardware together and giving it to Google.
post #3 of 40
Agreed. With this costing a full Benjamin over the iPad2, The average consumer is probably going to go Apple. I went to Best Buy over the weekend to check out the two and the Xoom was tucked away by the netbooks while the iPad2 was on full display. There was nobody checking out the Xoom and I had to wait a bit to get my hands on the iPad2. Doesn't look so good for Xoom and Honeycomb so far...

Well they are packing superior hardware.

Still though; they should hit that $500 mark and no more.

The Xoom at my local best buy is in a cabinet.

1: They buy Tegra2 from nvidia, instead of producing it inhouse.
2: Less manufacturing capability
3: 30% higher res, better cameras, more I/O

I agree with you though, 499 would sway me.

If it costs more then an iPad, people are going to buy an iPad, simple as that. Which is sad... If they brought this to the same price or lower then the cheapest iPad model, then they would do well. But sadly, this missed the mark.

There's a Xoom ad on this webpage for me right now .

I can see Apple monopolizing this industry, if it hasn't already started.

This isn't helping. Higher price + "not being Apple" = no sales -__-

I agree. You cannot charge more than Apple in Apple's market. The Ipad 2 has a screaming fast GPU according to Anandtech plus a dual core SoC. If the Xoom was $450 it would sell much better.

Well, since there's only one model (32GB), I guess they ARE The same price (if you look at a 32GB iPad.)
