Motorola and Android have thrived in each other’s company ever since the Droid happened. Both Google and Motorola are probably banking on that tried and tested partnership to pay off once again, this time in the tablet market. A lot of people believe an attractive price would go a long way to ensuring the success of the Motorola Xoom. So how much will you need to pay for the upcoming Android Honeycomb-running tablet?

Our friends over at Engadget found the answer in a Best Buy flyer, which has a lot of other things you might want to know. According to the ad, the Xoom will launch on February 24, 2011 with an asking price of $799.99. High or not, the price is certainly consistent with previous leaks. The ad also lists Verizon’s 3G data plans for the Xoom.  In all, there are five data options starting at $20 for 1GB/month and going all the way up to $80 for 10GB/month.
