The prices for Motorola's tablet PCs seem a bit high
Verizon has some very appealing new devices up its sleeve, and some more info on the price tags the wireless carrier will attach to them has just emerged.A new MAP (minimum advertised price) list from Verizon has leaked online, and it unveils detail on the said cost for upcoming devices at the wireless carrier, while also confirming the existence of some of them.
One of the handsets that can be seen on that list is, of course, the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Nexus, which should go for $299.99 (around 222 Euros) when made available for purchase.
Unfortunately, no specific info on the release date for the new device has emerged in the leaked MAP, though some of the latest reports on the matter suggested that December would be the lucky time frame for enthusiasts.
The guys over at Droid-life note that November 28th was the targeted release date for the new device, but that Verizon had to push the release back several days.
The leaked document also shows info on the price tag that the new Motorola tablet PCs will sport at Verizon.
Both the 8″ and 10″ devices are listed there, though they are not called by their actual names (which should be Xyboard, some of the latest rumors on the matter suggested).
The smaller device will go for $429 with 16GB of internal memory, and will cost $529 when the 32GB model is purchased.
As for the larger, 10-inch tablet, pricing will start at $529 for the 16GB model, and will go all the way up to $729 for the 64GB flavor.
For what it's worth, considering the fact that these prices are good with the signing of a contract agreement, they do seem to be pretty high.
However, since nothing has been made official on these so far, we should wait for Verizon to make a formal announcement on the matter. Stay tuned for additional details.
