Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi Now $499

A few months after launching their first Honeycomb tablets, Motorola has dropped the price down to a more reasonable figure. For all the awesome hardware and Android 3.1 greatness inside, there has been one problem plaguing the XOOM – it’s too expensive. Perhaps in an effort to fend off the ASUS EeePad Transformer and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, Moto has shaved a cool hundred off the Wi-Fi edition of the tablet.
It will be interesting to see if the contracted prices get dropped a bit as well. Maybe this is part of a sweeping price change ahead of a new model? If you are on the fence about buying a XOOM for yourself, then be sure to read our review.

So folks, tell us are you finally getting XOOM Wi-Fi or happy with your ASUS or Samsung tablet? Or are you just not planning on getting tablet at all?

    16gb more than the tab, and with sd card…might be worth it for the slightly bigger form.

    I already have a Notion Ink Adam that I don’t use, so I will probably not be buying one.  Which is a bit of a shame because I feel like I really want one. :(

    I own a Xoom, I bought it I think to early without realizing the sd card did not work. So from April to August with a product that was only 50% of its potential available. This is why figures are poor, who wants a product that doesn’t work properly. But with that said I’m still happy with it and I use it all the time, and the 3.1 updte coming ( fingers crossed ) next week it feels like 6 months after purchase I am finally getting what I payed for.
