Default Xoom pricing on the other side of the pond.

This converts to $734 I think. Sound high to me, what do you think.

Sounds ridiculously high. I really want a Xoom WiFi model....but for only slightly cheaper than the Wifi + 3G? No thanks.

This is absurd. Let's hope it's an error like the $1199 pricing was. At $700+ this thing is dead.

they are paying 734 $ equivalent of pound, not 734 pounds.

Also keep in mind that includes 20% VAT. so 600*1.2 is like 720, Price seems right on. Also since its in europe, you guys pay more for electronics. I remember paying 120 euros for a 70 dollar router.

Same thing is true for ipads, laptops and pretty much everything. If you don't like it, talk to your govt.

Never know until it gets out there. Maybe they're trying to makeup for the moto coupon code snafu? :P

Just in case you missed it. Doesn't seem to be a great big savings IMHO.

lol. It doesn't mean that the wifi pricing for us will be $730.

Did you see the 3g pricing in Germany? It's €699.95 which is about 593 GBP. So to me, that's substantial savings if you live in the UK if the 3G model is made available in the UK. 449.99 GBP wifi vs 593 GBP (3G).

As far as I can tell, US pricing hasn't been confirmed so we'll just have to wait.

Yeah we always get screwed here in the UK. There is no way you will pay the equivalent in dollars in the states. Here in the UK we typically see the number of dollars you pay for something is the number of pounds we pay. For instance this is the same price as the ipad. I bet you don't pay $700+ for a bottom of the line ipad. Essentially that is what I would take from this info. It will cost the same as the wifi only ipad

if you look at UK iPad pricing which is here:
iPad - iPad WiFi - iPad WiFi + 3G - Apple Store (UK)

it shows that the closest in price is 16GB WiFi only iPad for 439.00

now if you go to US iPad pricing which is here:
iPad - iPad WiFi - iPad WiFi + 3G - Apple Store (U.S.)

that same 16GB WiFi only iPad is selling for $499

so it might make you think that the WiFi only Motorola Xoom might be even cheaper then originally thought if it is selling over in the UK for around 449.00

just my thoughts and analysis

My thoughts exactly but I didn't want to say it because if it's higher than the rumored $600 then the threads about the wifi Xoom is overpriced will be beaten to death too.

To tell you the truth I am quite happy with 449 for the wifi only version in the UK. Base on the rough one-to-one us-to-uk price conversion on electronics I panicked when I saw the 4G Xoom was $799. It really does look like the wi-fi only version could be around $500 in the states.

Spoke to soon. The price has now gone up to 500 in the UK. Will be interesting to see the price of the ipad2 when it is announced today. I am sure this will have an effect on the Xoom pricing

Beginning of April doesn't sound too unreasonable a delivery date.

Ah, bear in mind this is the European date format of Day-Month-Year compared to the US format of Month-Day-Year

Thumbs up Heads up - Xoom for 427.49 at Dixons until 4th May

Just a headsup to anyone looking to purchase a Xoom before the 4th May.

Disclaimer: I dont work for Dixons, Quidco or Hotukdeals.com

MOTOROLA Xoom Tablet PC - 32GB - 449.99 at Dixons - HotUKDeals

Ive purchased today for 449.99 at Dixons using code: MVC30OFF (30 off until 4th May)

But I also went through Quidco who are offering 6% cashback = 22.50

So potentially Ive purchased for 427.49 (once Quidco pays out)

Enjoy

Only retailer around me has the Xoom on sale at 479 excluding VAT!

But rather than the extortionate price being the thing that pisses me off, it's the fact that none of the staff have a ****** clue how to sell the bloody thing.

I had to help them turn it on, then once on they've not set up a gmail account to load any apps, so there's no way of trying typing on the thing in a 'note' app.

How the hell Android's ever going to sell against a slick knowledgable Apple sales rep.?
