Sam's Club to Carry Xoom Tablet at Discounted Price

Who would have thought that Apple's trump card in the emerging tablet war would be price? Starting this Friday, you'll be able to pick up an iPad 2 starting at $500, and if you simply can't wait, Apple's getting rid of existing iPad 1 stock starting at $400. By comparison, you'll have to fork over $600 for Motorola's Wi-Fi only Xoom tablet, which also happens to be the first slate built around Google's Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) platform. Advantage, Apple?


Not so fast. Word on the Web is that Sam's Club plans to sell the Xoom for $539. That's $60 lower than what Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha said it would go for just two weeks earlier. Of course, you'll need a Sam's Club membership to purchase a Xoom at that price, but if you already have one, this is looking to be the best deal around for a Xoom. And if you don't already have a membership, something like this might be what convinces you to finally get one. Just think, with a Sam's Club membership, you can stock up on a year's worth of toilet paper on the cheap, which is only fitting since both will end up being used in the same room anyway.

It's $539, but only in a package of 24.

$539 + the $40(correct me if I'm wrong) annual membership fee puts you at 580 which is cheaper than the ipad by $20. Xoom just keeps getting better and better! Undercut and out perform the competition. And like they said you can get a pallet of tp and a barrel of Hawaiian punch with your new membership!

Didnt expect it to be this cheap! Great, i wish fanboys start opening their eyes and start looking at all available options.

Personally, even though the xoom is cool and what not, the one tablet i'm looking forward to (but wont buy anyway [student here]) is the BB playbook.

If they could get it under $400, I'd probably buy it just for giggles. I think I'll pass for now though.
