Motorola Xoom $1200 Best Buy Pre-Order Page Pulled

Motorola Xoom $1200 Best Buy Pre-Order Page Pulled

Best Buy had published an ad on their site for taking pre-orders on the Motorola Xoom listing it at $1200. This seemed way over-priced, double that of an entry-level iPad, and much more than the anticipated but already hefty $800 price point. However, today, it seems that Best Buy has pulled the ad. What's going on?

$1,200 Motorola XOOM listing: madness or mistake?

Back when we thought the Motorola XOOM might be $800, we wondered if the company had priced the Android 3.0 Honeycomb slate out of contention. Now, with a new Best Buy listing offering the 10.1-inch Tegra 2 tablet for $1,199.99, we're trying to figure out whether Motorola actually want to sell even a single unit.

Best Buy, Justin Bieber, Ozzy Osborne, and the new “Buy Back” Program

During the Super Bowl, Best Buy featured a commercial with teen pop sensation, Justin Bieber, and heavy metal legend, Ozzy Osborne, to launch their new “Buy Back” program. The program is pretty much what it sounds like--Best Buy stores will buy back products from their customers. The catch is that there's a cost to it almost like when you pay extra for that 3-year warranty. However, the program is free right now but will cost you after February 12th and the amount depends on the type of device.

$800 Motorola XOOM could price Honeycomb out of contention

Honeycomb was shaping up so well. CES 2011 saw several new slates debut and look to offer solid competition to the iPad, and then Google's Android 2.3 launch event last week left us even more confident in the tablet-centric build. Could Motorola and Verizon bring the whole party crashing down with silly pricing for the Motorola XOOM however? With a leaked Best Buy advert tipping a sales price of $799.99, that may well be the case.
