LTE will add more cost. $499.99 may be the price. AT&T can give it free for 3 years contract

Hmm if you have any doubt: "Just about all observers agreed, it seems, that the 10.1-inch, Verizon destined Motorola Xoom was the leading -- if not only -- true iPad competitor among the pack of Android contenders. CNET echoed this consensus when it gave the Xoom its Best of Show award." www.linuxdevices.com

The best tablets at CES had Tegra2 not Intel... like XOOM. Where are they?

I think xoom may be the best seller among all the tablets on show.

@Frank Eory- Yeah, I know. Moto Xoom could have been on the list. Ditto for PlayBook and several others mentioned in this string. I was putting it together on the fly, and it was before I'd seen many of the ones on the show floor. I never claimed the list was comprehensive. In retrospect, I probably could have (and should have) expanded the list to at least a dozen. These were six that generated buzz, but not the only six by any means.

This article is pro-Intel. Half of tablets are using Intel Atom chip. There are a lot of others going on there ......

@Davey - By country of origin, do you mean where it was designed, manufactured, or assembled? In many cases each of these can be different countries. In addition, how would that impact your buying decision if you had that information?

Tablet reviews should reveal the country of origin, as should all products.

I tend to agree with Larry on the walled garden and the carrier issue (this doesn't seem to be a problem in China, where the carrier-device tether is pretty much non-existent). We did a teardown of the Dell Streak and Archos 7 devices last fall (http://video.eetimes.com/search-video/arm-techcon-teardown-smackdown/678957972001?q=dell-streak). I was fascinated with the Streak's use proposition (is it a computer? is it a phone?). It's really both, but my mind--based on technology habits formed in the past 15 years-- says if something doesn't fall into the "phone" category or the "computer" category it's hard to embrace it. I'm sure that's just a matter of time (especially as I use my awkward Blackberry for computing and telephony and apps while despising the screen size and cursing my aging eyes).

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
