Motorola Xoom To Cost $1,199?

Seems the Motorola Xoom is available for pre-order at Best Buy for the insane-but-unconfirmed price of $1,199. You can buy an 11″ MacBook Air with 128GB SSD drive and 2GB RAM for that money. Or, of course, two iPads. I hope for Motorola’s sake this price is a mistake.

UPDATE: As I mentioned on Twitter, I suspect this is a fake price to gauge market reactions and “surprise and delight” crowds with the actual price being far less. That’s sort of what happened with the iPad (whether Apple started that rumor or not is irrelevant in hindsight); Motorola might just be doing the exact same thing here, and then offer it at the very real price of $699 or $799.
