Motorola XOOM Priced at $699 through Best Buy without Contract

How does $699 sound for the first Honeycomb tablet on the planet?  According to Best Buy, that’s exactly what they plan on selling the 3G/Wi-Fi Motorola XOOM for without a contract.  And for those that seem to think this is too much, the 32GB iPad sells for $729, and doesn’t have cameras, a dual-core processor, and runs a blown up phone OS.  The price point is probably right where it should be.  If you want a tablet for $400, you’ll have to consider other options like those from ViewSonic.  Of course, we could still see a 2-year contract option with Verizon that would bring the price down further.

Oh, and we’re still on pace for a February 17 launch.

    ipad runs a tablet os. You know, what its taken google a year to catch up to? And great job comparing an unreleased model for this year to a model from last year.

    You droid tards are getting desparate.

  • Theresa Carter

    I presume the Droid Xoom will have ability to download Adobe Flash Player. That is my main complaint with the Apple Ipad I just bought. I may sell it and get the Droid Xoom even it costs more than the $629 I paid for the Ipad. Because I really need the Flash Player for my apps thru Facebook.

  • Girlsnowdog

    what about Adobe Flash. The Droid Xoom will have it. It is my main complaint about the Ipad

  • GenCoupe06

    You people need to wake up and smell the coffee. Apple products are over-rated and they have too many limits. This Xoom already blows the lame ass iPad out of the water and it hasn’t even been sold. iPad = no camera. no hdmi. no flash. I can go on all day long. Spend the $700 and get the sickest tablet ever made.

  • Shampton34

    Many customers are weighing the purchase of a tablet vs. a laptop. Customers drop $700 for a laptop easily. This is definitely pricey – but I see their reasoning for it.

    I might be buying as long as its not tied to verizon. I plan on tethering to my OG droid.

  • Jawshua

    Yeah it’s definitely better than the Tampaxpad, but man that’s still too much money for my tastes. I mean for that much it should have a terrabyte of storage and like 12megapixel cameras and other stuff. And Lord, so should the Tampaxpad, I mean $729, is insane, I could get a decent laptop for that price. The Xoom will be amazing but to me it’s not worth that much money at all.

  • Hedon247

    never liked the iPad.sounds like a hi-tech panty liner. the Apple is a homosexual PC anyway.

    The price of this is at least $200 to high to really make a impact .To bad to I was looking forward to it until I saw the price .I am a android fan have a motorola x which is a great phone but being not Brand loyal like most people out there and most on here I also own a ipad and a itouch. After recently really giving the ipad a true test and trying many apps made especially for it there is no android tablet that will touch this regardless of dual-core processor and what have you. I will most likely be a candidate for the motorola bionic when it comes out as I want the speed (I hope) and hopefully the advantage of using the multitasking feature better than a single core like the droid x so thus will stick with a android product of which I have now which works ok but like computer I always want better and faster if possible. The apple products are much greater/smoother running and as much as I hate to admit it because of the os and the apps that are really designed for that product exclusively not hundreds or what ever different products that use android. Like I said I own and like android but when it comes to a tablet your going to be hard pressed to beat the smoothness and quickness of the apple ipad regardless of the processor.I own both and like I said I was hoping to say good bye apple but I can’t yet its still the best rather you will admit it or not and if your solely a android lover you will disagree with me totally but I am opened minded and for a product/OS to be better they have to prove it and then they will get credit at least from me no matter who they are!

    Can’t wait to see the XOOM. I won’t buy it unless it really amazes me but I will be there the day it is released to try it out.

    Here is why it will be a flop:
    When a person goes out to buy a product they look at two things, how good the product is and the cost. Even if the XOOM is better, most people will be attracted to the similar ipad priced at 500. Once they go into the store, there is still a good chance that they will be walking away with the 730 dollar version. People want a low starting price, and when they are faced with two products this similar they will choose the version with the lowest starting price.
