Quick Update: Xoom and Thunderbolt Pricing

Tipsters have found the Motorola Xoom and HTC Thunderbolt’s rumored minimum pricing.

The Motorola Xoom is listed as having a minimum price of $800.  The prices leads to the conclusion that this will be an unsubsidized device.  However, today a tipster released that it will be available for $699.99 at Best Buy starting February 17th.

The HTC Thunderbolt will be priced at a minimum of $250, which is probably the subsidized (2-year contract) price.  It’s $50 higher than most new smartphones, but that may be the premium you pay for that Fourth G.

Still no release date for the HTC Thunderbolt.  There is also no word on pricing for 4G plans.  Note that these prices and the release date are just leaks, so they are not set in stone, however, they are good starting points if you’re considering getting either of them.

And on that note, anyone have $700 they want to give me so I can get the Xoom?  Of course, I am only asking for the purposes of research.  You know, so I can review the item for my blog.  It’s not because I REALLY want a new gadget or anything like that.  No, not at all, this is a completely selfless act on my part. 😉

UPDATE: Looks like the HTC Thunderbolt my be available at Best Buy starting February 14th (source).
