Default Prices dropping

Saw (and bought 2!) wifi only Xooms at Walmart online yesterday for $499. With pickup at the store, there's no shipping charge; just applicable sales tax. Important safety tip, however: If you walk into the store, their price is still $599.

Amazon's picked up on this and now has the wifi only tablet for $499 and free (super saving) shipping; and no tax.

Didn't check any other places, but just thought I'd pass it on if you hadn't seen it yet.

[edit: quick search shows pretty much across the board the price is $499 for wifi only)

Update: $50 off coupon for Staples B&M makes it $450. Wonder if Wallyworld will match that?

And as of today, the 3G version is $599 at VZW, with contract, of course.
(That may have always been so - I didn't look at the 3G version)

I just purchased one from WalMart and they matched the Staples price. I took the coupon in with me. I just showed it to them and that was it. They did not even keep the coupon.
I would go back and ask for the Staples coupon price.

Yep! I picked one up today from Woot. Should go well with the Epic 4g, and brings me one step closer to Google owning my life. If only Google can replace my Macbook pro

Nope, they wouldn't match. I returned them and walked across the street to Staples and bought 2 new ones!

The 3G/Eventually 4G XOOM is now $599.99 full retail at Verizon wireless. While I love my 3G Xoom I am a bit irritated that it's now $200 less. I was perfectly happy paying an early adopters fee and didn't mind at the time that I had to wait for 4G. I didn't mind that I would have to wait 2 to 3 months and also liked that I would be getting updates first. But here it is 6 months later and still no 4G or SD card support and the wifi Xoom has 3.2 and the Verizon version doesn't. It's time to call Moto and demand a refund for the Xoom and Verizon to demand a refund for the data charges. As far as I am concerned there amnisty period has run out. It really is a shame because I really do prefer the Xoom to all the other tablets out.

My wifi Xoom doesn't even have 3.2 as I am in Canada. This is starting to get really frustrating.

I did an "Open Box Special" at Staples for $449 - $100 coupon net $349!!!!. The manager said they have had a bunch of returns as people thought these would be laptop replacements and from a word processing/spreadsheet perspective it's not there yet. I believe the coupon expires in Saturday.

How did you find out about the open box xooms? I was planning on buying one tomorrow or Saturday and would be fine with an open box for $50 off plus the coupon.

There should be an additional tag next to the price offering 10% off on open box items. If that tag is there I believe it means they are available.

I think it would be if the price drops further. People love bargains. We can see this from sale of Touchpad a couple days ago.

I found one listed on "Google Products" (Search for "Xoom tablets") for $269.00 (the
Google listing said "$329 Online", but they also list one at Elektronic Mart (new) for
$269.

Is this real? Or could it be a fake? If it's real, I'll be buying it really soon.....but if
it's a fake, I don't want it, obviously.....

So, does that mean that the one I found listed as new, for $269 is actually
NOT NEW, but is really either refurbished or a fake? Or is there a chance
that it's real? Link to site posted in my previous post in this thread.....

The reason I ask is, I've heard of fakes for another Tablet being sold, so I'm
wondering if that sort of thing is happening with the Xoom, too. I don't
want to buy a fake or refurbished model...I want a new one, and I found another
one listed as new for $329.... Just wondering......

Thanks,

Default I love my Tablet

Hi All I got my Motorola Xoom WIFI 32GB Model for $250

I was wondering if I got a good deal for it?

Considering it sells for $400 to $500

When I got it didn't have any scratches on the screen and no marks on it.

I bought a Screen protector for it.

Also it runs very smooth too I loved it a lot it also can play 1080p Videos very smooth with no lag which is very nice.

please comment thank you.....

Hi guys:

I bought a brand new Xoom on eBay last night through eBay for $349 using the Buy It Now feature. The seller was dailysteals, and they quickly sold through their allotment of 100 by this morning. The seller has posted another Buy It Now for the Xoom, though it's now listed at $399.

Another bonus is the seller did not charge for shipping and tax. So, depending on the local sales tax in your area, that was an additional savings of at least 10%. As the seller posted, "Black Friday arrives early".

And I was about to buy a used one through Craigslist for $325. I'm glad I did not.

I have to say, after having even more time with my A500, I'm very happy with it and the
price I paid for it.

The audio quality (when playing MP3s, movies, YouTube HD videos, etc.) is excellent. I have
recently been spending some time on YouTube (and AVIs converted FROM YouTube) of
some favorite Metal, Progressive Rock, Jazz, and Classical concerts, and across the board,
the audio quality and video handling is outstanding. My laptop (the one I'm on right now)
can't keep up with lower-res YouTube videos of the late Louie Bellson (one of the three
all-time great drummers of all time---the other two being the late Buddy Rich, and Neal Peart
of Rush), nor can it keep up with a pianist's hands while he/she is performing Rachmaninoff's
Piano Concerto #3 (those who are familiar with it know what I'm talking about!) ; my A500
strolls right along in full HD as if it was no big deal. Very nice.

And yes, the price did drop (as I thought it might) from the time last month when I posted my
previous post in this thread until the time early this month (the 3rd) when I ordered my A500).

Now the only remaining question is what to do with the Archos 101 IT tablet that I bought
to have something to keep me from being bored while in the hospital after major cancer
surgery (being bored --> poor morale ---> drains from your fighting attitude ---> death).
I have to get warranty repairs made (USB problem apparently standard with that tab),
then will either make it a Linux tablet or sell it. Suggestions?

Later,
--jim

Now that is a good deal. I just hope that VZW lets me keep my $20 data plan when a better tablet comes out.

Money Xoom (32gb Wifi) Price Watch!?! Refurbs welcome.

I'm in the market to buy a Xoom, and it's so hard to find the best price online. I know Woot! ran a lot of refurb models at around $330 and Walmart had some at about $350, but they look like they're sold out at the moment. I'm looking more for manufacturer refurbs, as I don't know to what standards the seller refurbs are held to. So post up the best prices you've found (please don't bother with eBay).

Any help is appreciated!

VZW has been (key words, has been) really good about grandfathering service plans. Especially for their long term customers.

I paid the UK equivalent of $410 for my factory refurbished Xoom including P&P to UK. It's not as cheap as some of the deals here but I was fairly pleased.

With the Xoom 2 around the corner, prices are only going one way but I don't see them reaching the bargain basement like the Touchpad (which I did try to buy but I was not quick enough).

Well it arrived. Asian tablet. Extremely pissed at the moment. If you live in the US do not buy from Unlocked Cell kings on Amazon. Returning immediately.

I took the plunge and ordered a Xoom from Curry's yesterday at 250 GBP. I was hoping to reserve and then collect today, but unfortunately my local stores are out of stock, as are nearby towns and cities, so 3-5 days home delivery it is.

I have no need for a tablet, but have said for a while that I would probably bite on a Xoom if I see them for around 250. Part of me wanted to wait for it to drop further, but I usually have the sort of luck where if this did happen, I wouldn't be quick enough to secure one by the time I found out about the low price, so I just went for it.

I'm already tempted to turn it into a GED, but not completely sure I'm brave enough to risk it.

Mine is in the mail. I have been looking at tablets almost got a 64gb iPad. With 32gb on board and it can take a 32gb microSD it gets my 64gb needs. At this price i couldnt even find a refurb this cheap. I couldnt pass this deal up.

Thanks androidforums for the heads up on this deal!

The Xoom arrived on Friday, but having a week to think about it whilst I was waiting, my 'I don't need it and can't see when I'll use it' feeling took over, so I'm not sure if I'll keep it.

It's still in its box on the table whilst I'm looking into Android equivalents of iCloud, such as SugarSync, to make it more worthwhile instead of having a notebook, netbook, Android phone and tablet that are all standalone devices, give or take a few stock features.

What is the difference? How do you know it is "Asian"? I ordered one from Amazon - GoPowerUp LLC - BuyBuy Online. What should I be looking for when it comes??
