    I know a lot of people in here might not receive this well, but I promise it's not a personal attack. I am pretty sick and tired of the way my xoom preforms. So I want to sell it. I am wondering whether I should wait until the 4g chip and whether that will make it worth more or I should just sell it right now. What do you all think?

    Thanks!

    P.S. Xoom 3g for sale :p

    Wait for 4G. Many people will want one at that time, because it'll be the best tablet on the market with 4G speed.

    how can you be sure that another 4g tablet won't be out or that this one will dwarf it?

    You can't... but a 4G tablet is more valuable than a 3G one, in my opinion.

    I'd rather have that eee transformer than this xoom lol, but i'm content with this. The way things are, if I let gadget lust get to me I'll be buying a new tablet every 3-6 months.

    I'm not sure, but right now we have the cheapest 4g plan out there. My Verizon rep and VZW press releases claim that the rate will be the same when we get the upgrade. I don't know if that will be the case later. That isn't much of a selling point unless your prospective buyer is planning to activate it relatively soon. It may not matter because they could offer this plan for all 4g tablets.

    PS: it shouldn't bother most people if YOU want to sell YOUR hardware. You're not making a big deal about it, so it's not a big deal.

    I sold mine with Bluetooth keyboard and Motorola case for $700 on eBay. It was a 7 day listing and on day 2 someone hit the buy it now button. There are people out there that will snatch them up, especially if you realize you will be taking a bit of a loss on it. I say the longer you wait, the less likely someone will want to pay you what you want for it.

    I learned that I don't use 3g service with a tablet(totally my fault for buying 3g/4g tablet). I thought I would, but If I wanted data, I would probably just tether with my phone if wifi wasn't available. It's cheaper that another plan. :-/

    I put it on their last night for 635. buy it now and auction style. I have $102 bid on it. so Maybe this will go well. We'll see. Thanks for the advice guys :D

    By the way. I was looking at how the used Ipad's were selling. Check them out it's insane! the used ones are selling for more than new one's from apple.com! OMG!

    P.S. Here is the listing if anyone is interested 3G/4G 32GB Motorolla Xoom With Zagg Invisible Screen | eBay
