Motorola Xoom Data Price, Most Expensive Mobile Data Plan

Motorola Xoom’s Data price, $20 for 1 GB, $80 for 10 GB available Feb 24 at Best Buy  (via Engadget).

At $20 per Gigabyte, it is THE most expensive mobile data plan around. Who would go for this?!

Motorola Xoom has been the most anticipated Android Honeycomb Tablet and is said to be an Android answer to Apple’s iPad. Motorola is positioning the Xoom directly against the iPad and creating negative Ads (e.g. below) to make this point. With an $800 price (unsubsidized) and the most expensive mobile data plan it will be rough going for the Xoom.

It does not help that Xoom looks like an Android PC rather than a worthy iPad competitor. The Xoom will get compared against the much cheaper PC’s that offer similar functionality as Xoom including playing Flash.
