Rumors about the upcoming Motorola Xoom (the first Android OS 3.0/Honeycomb based tablet) are getting whackier and whackier.
One January 24, the current thinking was that the Xoom would be priced at a somewhat competitive (but still unattractive) $699.
By February 7, its price had risen to $800 and was said to require activating a 3G wireless data plan to get its WiFi working. This priced it near Apple’s most expensive iPad model (iPad 3G with 64GB RAM costs $829).
Business Insider reported about evidence about an even higher price ($1200) for the Xoom.
However, Engadget notes that this outrageouly high price (higher than an entry level MacBook Air notebook) is probably just a placeholder value.
