It's the only way to go. There are people out there that will part with anything when they're desperate. Right place, right time.

I don't think their tablets are overpriced. Most of the newer tablets coming out are all about in the same range.

Now if we were talking about their laptops or desktops then I definitely agree they are overpriced. That is why they don't sell very many of them compared to ones running Windows.

Yes, the used vs new market. Personally, I like everything brand new. You get a 1 year warranty. And Apple has excellent customer service if you have an Apple store nearby.

I do feel that a lot of that is pricing up to the competition. They figure Apple is doing it so they automatically can too.

If you make a widget for 10 cents, but discover that the public is willing to pay $10,000 for it, are you going to price it at 12 cents?

Xoom: iPad Killer

"Apple sold 9.2 million iPads in the June quarter and Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer noted Apple is selling "every iPad we can make."

In contrast, Motorola Mobility shipped (not necessarily sold) 440,000 in the just ended quarter, and expects to sell 1.3 to 1.5 million tablets this year.

As Dan Frommer points out, Apple sells 1.5 million iPads every two weeks. "

Royalties, no. I've made a killing on their stock, though. Bought a lot when it was at $80 after the crash in 2008. It hit 400 a couple of days ago. They just keep selling.

And FWIW, I'm only mentioning the article because the comparison in units sold is hilarious. Motorola hopes to sell as many Xooms in a year as Apple sells iPads in 2 weeks? Geezus.

That is just terrible.

I think the combo nokia/microsoft tab & the amazon tablet are the next big tablets coming out.

There's a rumor that they're going to buy Barnes and Noble for $1 billion. Not sure why they would, though, unless they want their schoolbook business.

Apple has like $72b in cash right now, so it's not a bank-breaker or anything.

Yeah, I wish there was some info on the Amazon tablet. Last I heard they were looking for an October release.
