Motorola slashes the Xoom's price by $100

Summary:Getting the hint, Motorola is finally dropping the price of the 32GB Wi-Fi Xoom to $499.

The market hasn't been very kind to Motorola and its Xoom tablet. But Motorola is trying to make things better, starting now by dropping the price of the 32 GB Xoom Wi-Fi by $100, to $499.

But will the price drop make a difference? Considering competing tablets like the TouchPad, iPad, and PlayBook all come in $500 varieties, it's something of a surprise that it's taken Motorola this long to follow suit. While the Xoom still has its stuggles ahead of it, a drop in price certain doesn't hurt.

The next step? Getting those 4G upgrades out to owners.
