    While it has the most expensive pricing in the industry you can not compare it to a wifi only version of the ipad. You have to keep a baseline as close as possible and that means using the storage size and the inclusion of a cellular radio or not.

    Granted that the ipad has several models to choose from but the Xoom also has a SD card slot for memory expansion.

    Exactly. If you are going to compare the Xoom to the iPad then at least choose the iPad with similar specs. (3G, Memory Space)

    Had my sights firmly set on the Xoom, pending pricing, as the size and specs are perfect for me. I was prepared for $699. $799 would be very painful, but for me this stupid "data plan to unlock wi-fi" is the killer. I figure the minimum $20, plus $35 for activation and all the fees and taxes that go along with that month of data, and I'm into Verizon for close to $70 on top of the already steep price. $70 for one gig of data! Add all this together with the cost of a case and maybe one of the docks and we're bumping $1000!!! I just refuse! I don't care how great the tablet is, I'm not paying Verizon for the privilege of walking out the door with the thing just so they can have their cut. Sounds like the Mafia! So, I guess I'll wait to see how this unfolds, and if things don't change I guess I'll either be settling for a rooted Nook Color, waiting for a mythical wi-fi only or reduced-price Xoom, or waiting for the g-Slate or Asus eeePad to firm up. Thanks, Verizon!

    The price of the Xoom isn't "official yet."

    It's all a marketing scheme. Now the $800 price doesn't look so bad eh?

    No 800 is still to much.
