Motorola Xoom priced at $800 at a minimum, according to Verizon leak -- Engadget
Whoa.....definitely NOT worth it!!!!!
You know the saying.

Ditto that...US$800 for the Motorola Xoom Tablet? It had better be @ least 64Gig and have wifi/3G capability. That is a huge price tag to have freedom to customize, flash capability, front & back cameras, memory expansion slots.
I have an iPad that has been working for me now for over six months. Ive spent every day on this device. It has served me well. While, I am hopeful that the Motorola Xoom succeeds as a worthy competitor to the iPad, but unlike Apple, where you get 6 different models for 6 different prices, an $800 price tag doesn't seem to me like Motorola wants to sell them to everyone.
Engadget went back and saying price point will likely be $700 for 32gb.

Thanks Xune For Posting
Thank you for this article. I hope Motorola heeds these wise comments and not fall into the greed trap. It is ironic that many Android fans who have posted such glowing comments of the freedom to do what you like with this product would end up with a standard bearer that would only be available to the elite. If only a few people can afford it, would that not be the ultimate close end operating system?
STILL too expensive.
Yeah, I think if I can sum up why the Xoom will suck in one word: Verizon. That's pretty much all that needs to be said.
You guys do realize that the tech specs of the Xoom are much better than the iPad and it's $20 cheaper than the 32GB 3G iPad right? So you should also say the iPad is too expensive. Also, the $700 price is unsubsidized, if you get a data plan the price is expected to be $299. Also the Wi-Fi version will be cheaper as well.
How will Verizon make it suck? They have already said it will be a stock Android OS and not skinned by Verizon. If you are talking about the service, AT&T is MUCH worse than Verizon.
I do think the price is competitive although I personally feel both tablets are overpriced given the hardware inside. I would have liked to see Motorola come in with a little lower price, but considering what 3G enabled iPad models retail for this price seems to be on the mark.
