The Wi-Fi only variant of the Motorola XYBOARD 10.1 is available with 16GB for $499.99 and with 32GB for $599.99. The Wi-Fi only variant of the Motorola XYBOARD 8.2 comes with 16GB for $399.99 and with 32GB for $499.99. The tablets can be pre-ordered now from Motorola at the sourcelink and are expected to ship starting January 18th. Although the prices are only $20 less than the 4G LTE enabled versions at Verizon, you won't have to pay monthly cell bills.
The Motorola XYBOARD 10.1 has a 10.1 inch screen (1280 x 800 resolution) made from Gorilla Glass and Motorola's own splash-resistant coating. A dual-core TI OMAP 4430 1.2GHz processor is under the hood. 1GB of RAM is aboard. A 5MP camera on back captures video in 720p at 30fps while a 1.3MP front-facing camera is great for video chats. Android 3.2 is pre-installed. The Motorola XYBOARD 8.2 has the same exact specs except for a smaller 8.2 inch display.

There will probably be decent quad cores with ICS for $300 soon and Moto thinks we'll pay $400 for a dual core with GB?! (16GB versions) Knock another $150 off and we'll talk.

Ridiculous. What the hell are they thinking? Why even offer Wi-Fi only versions if they are only $20 cheaper than the Cellular versions?

I dont understand why they keep charging $400 - $600 for an android tablet. I am 100% behind Android, but when the average consumer sees $600 for Moto Tablet and $600 for iPad.... 8 out of 10 times the consumer is going to get an iPad. The sad part is it is not because it is a better product, it is all based on what they "know". Amazon showed us that if you lower the price, people will buy.
