Motorola's slate not exactly Xooming off the shelves

There is one basic problem holding sales of the xoom back. "PRICE", its far too expensive.

Agreed, not until these come down in price will people consider them - I am holding out!

Yep, price price price, Motorola are looking for too much of a margin on this tablet (didnt they look at the samsung tab and realise that)?

Drop the price to well under the iPad (£299 or less) and watch it take off
