Motorola slashes Xoom prices

Written by Fudzilla staff


That’s how well it’s selling
Motorola has lowered the price of its 32GB WiFi Xoom tablet from $599 to $499, thus telling the world that sales aren’t as good as expected.

Motorola is facing stiff competition from other Android tablet makers, such as Asus, Samsung and Acer. However all Android tablets are still rather pricey and they come close to Apple’s iPads in terms of value for money, or lack thereof.

Other vendors are struggling as well. Asus revised its shipment goals for 2011 more than once and Toshiba is also expected to cut the price of its tablets.

Cut another $100 and we have a deal.

Yeah, that's basically what I was thinking. If they want to compete for market share with the Ipud, and they were as late to the market as all the Android tablets were, then they have to do drastic things like undercut Apple's pricing significantly. IMO, the market isn't big enough for multiple vendors of high priced screen toys. Drop the pricing and you might take market share away.

How can it be that a tablet is $200 more expensive than a Netbook that has FAR more power and functionality (not to mention more hardware), and also comes with a Windows licence !

Tablet should infact, be MUCH cheaper than netbooks considering that tablets have - less hardware, less performance and dont have to pay for Windows.

They are nothing more than a money grab designed to fool the ignorant into parting with their money.

Oh well, I got violated in the butt area when I bought the 3g Xoom ($799 +tax) and I don't even use Verizon data. Like any other early bird, That's the price of I was there and I use it first.
