When Steve Jobs introduced the iPad last January, the biggest surprise wasn't the actual product. (Many shrugged and called the iPad a "bigger iPhone.") It was the price: Just $US500.


OK, so the standard Motorola Xoom really does cost $US800, as a leaked Best Buy ad showed last week. That sucks, because it's the only 3G model out there. But there is some good news: The Wi-Fi only version is $US600 - the exact same as a 32GB iPad. Too bad it's not coming out till after the 3G version.


The Motorola Xoom tablet might not have an operating system that's "finished", but it is still the most promising Android tablet so far. That's because of its tablet-oriented Honeycomb OS, but it's also because it's a nice tablet.
