    Interesting. Let's hope Apple take the bait, with their UK prices too.
    I assume that the prices are pre-tax?

    PC World have pulled the link (according to the Engadget story's updates).

    Hopefully it goes even cheaper. :)

    UK Prices like this are always shown as including VAT (UK Sales tax)

    Unless of course, someone has screwed up, but as I say, UK prices are always displayed including Tax.

    Without question, this is the price it NEEDS to be.

    Blimey! Since when do we get decent prices over here? Im not a fan of Motorola phones though (build quality etc) so i will wait for a few reviews of this unit before i think about purchasing it

    1. Wait until it is on sale.
    2. Check how it compares not to the one year old iPad, but to whatever Apple is selling when this gets released.
    3. Who in their right mind would buy an imitation for full price? You can't sell iPad clones unless they are significantly cheaper than the iPad.

    The details say for April release there.

    Pretty sure that offer was pulled (never really available in the first place)...

    Yup £499 now for the 32GB Xoom.

    I hope Apple price their new 32GB Model at the same price.
    Or even less would be nice of course.

    After the app comparison I saw, who wants a Xoom? It sounds like a portable Web browser if you've only got 100 apps.

    I'm not saying I'm going to choose anything.

    I am just saying that I hope the 32GB iPad2 is not more expensive than the 32GB Xoom that's all.
