Android tablet price cuts have started

I mentioned in a previous post that people were most probably not ready to pay a premium for an Android 3 tablet.

Obviously, the guys at Motorola thinks the same as they have aligned the price of the Xoom to the price of the iPad2 3G (32GB):

and the price of an iPad 3G 32GB at CarPhoneWareHouse is at the same price of £579.99

Will it be enough ? I don’t think so. There is a premium people want to pay for the “original” tablet. Is it a €50 premium? a €100 premium? The next weeks will tell.
