The Motorola Xoom, with its dual-core Tegra 2 CPU, 10.1 inch screen and tablet friendly Android 3.0 looks to be one of the first true iPad competitors. However, recent media reports have claimed the new Moto Tab could have a rather hefty price tag attached with rumored pricing as high as $800! Nearly double that of the current entry iPad price.

The rumored pricing for the Xoom posted by Chinese online retails range from 5600 Yuan ($850) and rising to 7700 Yuan ($1170)! Pretty astronomical pricing! but when compared the the iPad priced at around 4000 Yuan ($600) for the bottom of the range WIFI only 16Gb model and 6000 Yuan ($900) for the Samsung Galaxy Tab the more powerful Motorola starts looking relatively well priced!
