When Amazon announced the Kindle Fire tablet yesterday, it set the new bar for Android tablet prices. You see, Amazon’s tablet is going to be $199 without a contract effectively making the current slew of expensive Android tablets an ugly sight to consumers. So, how to make them more attractive?
Woot currently has the 32GB Wi-Fi only Motorola Xoom available for $350. Not a bad offer at all. As for the HTC Flyer, Phone Arena is reporting that it will likely be seeing a price cut at Best Buy taking the Wi-Fi version down to $300 which would be a $200 price drop from its usual $500. Barnes and Noble is also taking $25 off the Nook Color.
Yes folks, the race for the bottom has officially begun.
And while these are the first significant price cuts for Android tablets, they certainly will not be the last in the build-up to Amazon’s Kindle Fire launch in November.
So, if you’ve been thinking about picking up a Honeycomb tablet, you might want to wait a few weeks to see how low the prices on Android Wi-Fi tablets get.
You’ll probably be surprised.
