Sometimes early adopters pay a huge price. This may be the case with XOOM, if the rumored $799 price is a fact. Even if Verizon knocks off $200, and they stick you with a $30 a month data plan for 2 years with high penalties for cancelling, it will be brutally expensive. It is now reasonable to really look at alternatives. The Ipad 2 will be out, probably in April, and will definitely have a wifi only and have about the same hardware as the Xoom, and maybe $200-300 cheaper. I've had an Ipad and would buy another. The Acer 10.1 inch Android, with similar or better hardware than the Xoom is also supposed to be out around April. Acer usually prices VERY competitively. There are also a few others in the 10 inch form. Are we all going to jump on the Xoom?
