    A $300 higher-end tablet may seem like fantasy, until you think about how many manufacturers that are going to be releasing tablets in early 2011. With these companies basically releasing tablets that are very similar (i.e hardware specs, screens, same OS) features, the way to win out is pricing. Of course Apple is able to dictate their high price, because right now there is only one iPad. With new Android tablets, that will not be the case. Supply vs. Demand... the market is going to be saturated with Android tablets in just a few months. This will eventually drop the price down, i'm guessing by June/July.

    I did expect a crazy off-contract price it will sell a laughable small number of units and won't matter.

    I honestly wouldn't spend $800 for a tablet when that can buy you a decent laptop... That's a shame from Motorola. :/

    If the price difference is more than $100 for the wifi-only version, that is stupidity. I wouldn't pay $450 more for 3G access.
