    This converts to $734 I think. Sound high to me, what do you think.

    Sounds ridiculously high. I really want a Xoom WiFi model....but for only slightly cheaper than the Wifi + 3G? No thanks.

    This is absurd. Let's hope it's an error like the $1199 pricing was. At $700+ this thing is dead.

    did we hear "around 600" before....and also UK seems to have to pay a premium for some things over the USA. So its not a direct comparison imo ;)

    they are paying 734 $ equivalent of pound, not 734 pounds.

    Also keep in mind that includes 20% VAT. so 600*1.2 is like 720, Price seems right on. Also since its in europe, you guys pay more for electronics. I remember paying 120 euros for a 70 dollar router.

    Same thing is true for ipads, laptops and pretty much everything. If you don't like it, talk to your govt.

    lol. It doesn't mean that the wifi pricing for us will be $730.

    Did you see the 3g pricing in Germany? It's €699.95 which is about 593 GBP. So to me, that's substantial savings if you live in the UK if the 3G model is made available in the UK. 449.99 GBP wifi vs 593 GBP (3G).

    As far as I can tell, US pricing hasn't been confirmed so we'll just have to wait. :(

    Edit: I didn't know that a couple of threads were merged. :p Way to stay on top of things Mods! :D

    Ed zachary! Just because they converted the amounts doesn't mean that's the US pricing.

    Yeah we always get screwed here in the UK. There is no way you will pay the equivalent in dollars in the states. Here in the UK we typically see the number of dollars you pay for something is the number of pounds we pay. For instance this is the same price as the ipad. I bet you don't pay $700+ for a bottom of the line ipad. Essentially that is what I would take from this info. It will cost the same as the wifi only ipad

    Beginning of April doesn't sound too unreasonable a delivery date.

    Ah, bear in mind this is the European date format of Day-Month-Year compared to the US format of Month-Day-Year
