    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,
    ---jim

    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.....

    I think that is a good price for it.

    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,

    I saw the add on TV last night and I thought I was seeing things. Called VZW store today, they confirmed $199 and put one on hold for me.

    Ordered mine online yesterday for $199. No ship date yet, kind of wishing I'd gone to the store today so I could have it in my hands now!

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

    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.

    $329.99 & $4.99 shipping, new, from 1saleaday.com for 24 hours on 1saleaday.com. That sounds like a 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??
