Dunno about you, but we'd be perfectly happy if Best Buy drops the price of the Motorola Xoom Android 3.0 tablet $100 when it's released on Feb. 17. (Droid Attic's leak also apparently confirms the launch date.)
The $699 unsubsidized price isn't a huge drop from Verizon's $800 minimum advertised price -- news we broke on Friday -- but it's a start. Chances are we'll see prices fluctuate -- they always do -- and we'll be on the lookout for those "Price so low we can't advertise them" deals. Again, you can sell for less than the MAP, you're just not supposed to advertise it. [via Droid Attic]
Update: Droid-Life was sent some sort of "price verification" receipt that shows $799. So $700, $800, either way, you might want to start getting loan papers together.
