    Pre-Order Xoom at Best Buy for $1,199


    What the what?! Best Buy has just put up word on when you can pre-order the Motorola Xoom -- this coming Thursday, February 17th -- and a price, $1,199. There are "great" financing offers available, but we can't get over this price we're seeing. Our only hope is that this may be a placeholder number, which will get revised soon, though it's live on Best Buy's site and there's nothing to really indicate it's a mistake. Moreover, that 1-month data activation requirement we noted recently is indeed real, meaning you'll need to pay a levy to Verizon as well before you get your Android 3.0 groove on.

    dear god this has fail written all over it. Motorola has officially lost it's mind.
    To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.

    Maybe Best Buy is pricing it wrong just to gain some attention I'm sure it's just a matter of time before its corrected to $799.. at least I hope so

    Yeah, it HAS to be a mistake. I cannot even begin to fathom the thought of a tablet being over a thousand dollars.

    Well it looks like Best Buy took it off the site. It's all a marketing scheme... Now the $800 price doesn't look so bad eh?

    Whatever price it settles on, you can bet the margin is over 100% for those early adopters, which won't be me. ;p $500 is my max for such a toy...and putting honeycomb on my Nook Color is looking VERY tempting atm.
