Motorola XOOM 3G Price Drop Gets Even Better, Full Retail Lowered to $599

We reported earlier today that the Verizon version of the Motorola XOOM had dropped to $499 on 2-year contract, but from the shot of a store’s pricing slip, we can see that the deal may be even sweeter.  The full retail price (in stores at least, online is still $799) has dropped to just $599 as of today.  Yep, that makes the 3G version of the XOOM that is upgradeable to 4G LTE, the same price as its WiFi-only counterpart (well, when it originally launched).

In recent weeks, we had been telling most of you in the tablet-buying market to either consider the new Galaxy Tab 10.1 or Asus Transformer.  But to have a Honeycomb tablet that will at some point in the next month be upgraded to 4G and that also receives updates quicker than anyone, we’d be lying if we didn’t tell you that we think this deal is ridiculously good.  Clearly there are cheaper options even with the XOOM 3G/4G at $599, but none of them will have the ability to lock onto Verizon’s network either.

Anyone ready to head into a Big Red store today?

Cheers ___!

    This has become the new Tab 7″.  Hopefully this lower price will mean the subsidized price will drop soon.  If they the original subsidy comes back ($200 I believe) and it can be had for $300 then they might see people show some interest.  Like how all the Staples stores near me sold out of Transformers since the coupon came out.

    Can you expound on the “…some point in the next month be upgraded to 4G” statement, please.

      What it means is that Xoom owners are STILL waiting while the tablet world passes them by.

    I paid $ 32.86 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Sony laptop for $ 94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $ 650 and it only cost me $ 51.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff,  http://to.ly/aPJW

    Picked up the 16gb galaxy tab this past weekend. With combo of staples coupon and rewards got it down to 300. Fairly happy with that price at the moment…App selection is rather grim, but still holding out hope developer will ultimitely jump on board a standardized OS. One would think it would be easier to develop for the tablet space as there isn’t the fragmentation there is on phones.

    What does make me bothered is when I look for accessories and staples, who doesn’t even sell the ipad, has shelves stocked full of accessories for it. Yet none for the tab.

    I have 14 days to decide and we’ll see how it goes….

    Still wouldn’t get xoom when I can tether for free…

    Not to mention, if you are at your 16th day of the 14 day policy they have, they screw you over and will not give you the 200 back.  Blood suckers

      That’s why it is a 14 day policy… lmao! That sucks tho

  • Endisky

    This is still WAY overpriced!

  • Jp

    I’d recommend the 3G version over Wi-Fi any day of the week.
