This is Fail. What, were they so enamored by the Verizon Xoom pricing train wreck that they wanted a wreck of their own? I don’t understand this. At these prices the tablet will. Not. Sell. I don’t know if they figure on selling to corporate customers, but at these prices why would anyone not go with an iPad? And I don’t see on-contract tablets of any kind selling well until they get busy with the shared/multi-device data plans they’ve been hinting about.

HTC can't seem to get a tablet produced that's priced anywhere near competitively. Haven't they heard? No one wants a tablet priced higher than an Ipad2. To compete you have to be below $349. Ask HP..............

With the 3G/4G radios I'd expect the Jetstream to cost more than my wifi-only Asus Transformer. But carrier subsidies should bring the price down to the $450 level - not too much to ask considering they are expecting a 2 year agreement and data fees. But no, they want people to pay an un-subsidized price. Verizon couldn't pull it off, and they have a better network. This kind of deal would sting even more on an AT&T network.

$699 WITH a 2-year contract? XOOM fail

That is just ridiculous with the on-contract price. Then again $699 with a two-year contract is cheaper than a 32GB Ipad2 no contact on ATT (assuming the Jetstream is 32GB out of the box).

It's like ATT wants it to fail.
