Motorola Xoom price drop. This is the Wifi and 3G enabled tablet, which has just gone down in price. If you use Quidco, you should get about £50 back too. Good luck Read More

How are Motorola looking to tempt people away from Apple if they are trying to be like them with that kind of price! Surely by undercutting Apple with a product that is still not quite up to scratch, competing with a product in it's 2nd phase and with other competitors on its heals means the Xoom will be as popular here as it currently is in the States.

IF these big companies cannot make a decent tab with a decent spec for under £350 then they should just back out and stop trying to palm this overpriced tat on us!

Tablets (my fav form factor for mobile computing) will simply die out, AGAIN, IF they dont get their acts together!

According to Gartner - The iPad accounted for 1 in every 8 Mobile PC's sold worldwide in the final quarter of 2010 - Impressive going on the face of it, but Apple have kept the successor at a reasonable price margin. WHY? IF the market leader is holding firm on price, then what makes the newbies think people will pay over the odds for "Open Source"?

I have used most of the main protagonists and whilst there is NO doubting the build quality of the higher end machines (I'm NOT saying the lower end ones are bad by any stretch), the single most important factor for me (and everyone i've handed them to) is usability. I get the same usability out of a £200 Vega or a £190 Archos 101 as I do from the iPad (1+2), the G-Tab, the Xoom etc. SO, unless you are loaded/live with a Burberry Umbrella stuck where the sun dont shine, just go for the cheaper option of a £200 Vega or Archos!

You will only be disappointed in how limited ALL these tabs are when it comes to doing stuff you take for granted on a (usually half the price) netbook! But for ease of use and doing things quickly, I wouldnt be without one now!

Motorola are having troubles with purchasing quantities of components, particularly screens, and they only sold 100,000 units in the first two months, Apple sold this many iPad 2's in one day.
Motorola's manufacturing plan was based on an initial 300,000 units in month one dropping to 100,000 units in month three and then none in month four! Either they are planning to release a new model in month four or are not committing long-term to the Xoom.
Android 3.0 has some fundamental issues that have to be addressed and some components that still need completing.
I have to vote cold as I feel early adopters of the Xoom are going to get ripped off and I think the price is going to plummet in the next few weeks, yes, that soon!

A little suprised at the reaction, but understand the points.

For me, I dont want a IPAD. Also I get a microSD solt, 64G of internal HD, Flash and integrates with my exisiting Google handset and so on.

I think it is better value than the IPAD, but this is my view.

Have a look at the Asus Transformer or other similar pads over this one. Agree about the Xoom being horrendously overpriced and that a price plummet is almost certain in the short to medium term.

what you're expecting motorola to price it at under £100? it's not a generic knock off ipad clone/android tablet you know.

well anything apple iwhatever will sell like hotcakes regardless of it being good or crap, if it was apple xoom(or more like ixoom) instead of motorola it would have sold 100k+ in one day.

Asus Transformer looks like it ticks all the boxes. Anyone know why they left out 3G?

damn shame.....

I don't know how you can say this is better value given Motorola's current track record with Android updates and an incomplete OS. IPad's aren't for everyone but it works. I do think there will be much better tablets to come rather than shelling out for a Xoom that is first 'Honey trap' to hit the shelves. Best to wait for more competition and a more polished OS.
