Indeed, it’s going to be a hard sell when you take into account the cheaper cost found with the Apple iPad 2 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. Luckily though, Motorola is doing justice for the very first Honeycomb flavored tablet to hit the market by dropping its price down by $100. Flaunting that golden tablet price of $499 now, it’s undoubtedly much more appreciative and might gain some visibility once again. However, Verizon’s cellular connected version doesn’t appear to get any love since it’s still priced firmly at $599 with a 2-year contract.
So if you’re in the market for a high premium tablet, then you’ll have to include the Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi into the mix of things now that it sports an even better price than before.
