Hope this rumor is true. This is just a rumor but definite enough to make me not preorder. I want to see how things shake out. Probably unfounded rumor but who knows. Costco To Sell Xoom On The Cheap, With MIR To Offset Activation? by Tim Barribeau on February 20, 2011 According to a rumor on XDA, Costco might be severely undercutting Best Buy’s $799 pricetag for the Motorola Xoom. Says XDA user bwcorvus:Today I have confirmed costco will have it for 699 and it will requirea one month activation. He also said the shipment will be there on the 22nd…he’s to hoping!!! When asked about if it had a Verizon activation fee, he said:Yes its $35 for activation. Costco will give you a $35 mail in rebate to cover it though. So you’re still stuck paying for a month of coverage, but this is a hell of a lot cheaper than the Best Buy version. I hope this rumor comes to something.
