$33 more than an iPad
A cost breakdown of Motorola’s Xoom tablet reveals that the new toy is somewhat more expensive to produce than an iPad, but this hardly justifies its high price.

UBM Techinsights estimates the Xoom BOM (bill of materials) at $278, or $33 more than a similarly spec’d iPad. However, the Xoom costs about $70 more than a comparable iPad, which sounds quite bad considering Apple’s traditionally high markup.
