Appalling competition from not only Apple iPad, but Samsung Galaxy Tab forced American vendor Android-devices to reduce the cost of Xoom tablet with a 3G-communication as much as $ 200.
The new price tag on the Motorola Xoom 3G is now $ 600, though that sign agreements with the operator Verizon Wireless is not necessary. Those who wish to connect the mobile service, the tablet will cost $ 500 per two-year contract. Still available for free upgrade with the installation of the module connection 4G-LTE. But the price of Xoom-only version of the Wi-Fi has remained unchanged – $ 500.
In general, Android-tablets is not yet possible, and even come close to the iPad. The reasons put, first, fairly small number of truly Tablet applications and rush to the preparation of releases Android-mobile platform, and secondly, the wrong approach of manufacturers trying to follow a strategy of implementation of tablets by analogy with smartphones, that is, in relation to operator services.
