TechInsights: Xoom Costs More to Make than iPad



+ Add a Comment


I refuse to believe they couldn't price it at $500-$550 and still make a profit. Most computer parts run a much smaller margin and no one complains.

Let's face it, they're going with the smartphone model of pricing instead of the computer model of pricing, which I really think is going to bite them on the ass. Most people will not pay $800 for what's essentially a toy.



$278 is $33 more than $235? Try $43.


I was actually thinking about Xoom until I heard it was going to be MORE than the iPad. Ridiculous! When has Apple ever been a price leader? It's time for the competition to show up.
