Motorola Xoom hits Best Buy Feb 17 for $700?

Good news, everyone! The Motorola Xoom is going to be...less, preposterously expensive than previously feared. A leaked Best Buy clipping from Engadget points towards a launch on February 17th, right at the end of the Mobile World Congress. It looks like the model that launches there will have 32 GB of storage.

Next, DroidAttic confirmed via inventory screeners that the Best Buy Xoom will cost $699. Which is $100 lower than the price we saw from Verizon. Now...which version of the tablet will run MotoBlur?

It is possible this price discrepancy means that the $699 model is WiFi only, while the $799 model is 3G.

Unfortunately, this is just more evidence that the Xoom will be one extremely expensive tablet. I played with it at CES 2011, and it sure FEELS premium. But that price is going to be a tough sell with the iPad standing next to it. How much is Honeycomb worth to you?

Unless Palm really does launch a 10" tablet at MWC, Moto might get away with the cost on scarcity of options alone. The Xoom will be our first Android tablet with a tablet-specific OS. Whether or not it succeeds will show us just how much that prospect interests the public.

RIM could play a big role in the Xoom's success too. They have enough of a public image and enough marketing muscle to pull some wind out of Motorola's sails, if the PlayBook launches concurrent to the Xoom. I guess we'll see how much room there is at the top of the curve in mid-February.
