Four Honeycomb tablets get priced, heading to Spain in April and May

Honeycomb tablets are still quite sparse, but things look to be a lot different in April and May. The latest online catalog from The Phone House features an an entire page dedicated to Android 3.0 tablets and their respective prices. The catalog shows the Motorola XOOM, ASUS EEEPAD, LG Optimus Pad, and the Acer Iconia A100. Exact launch dates for the four Android 3.0 tablets is not given, but the top of the page does indicate that the tablets will be available starting in April and/or May.

We know many of you are excited for the Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi which will be selling for $599 in just a few weeks. But once you see the prices of some of these Honeycomb tablets below, you might want to hold back on purchasing a tablet for a bit.

Tablet € Price (inc VAT) $ Price (inc VAT) $ Price (exc VAT)
Motorola XOOM €699.00 $987.00 $836.00
ASUA EEEPAD €399.00 $564.00 $478.00
LG Optimus Pad €849.00 $1,200.00 $1,016.00
Acer Iconia A100 €349.00 $593.00 $419.00

LG and T-Mobile have not yet unveiled the pricing of the T-Mobile G-Slate (LG Optimus Pad) for the U.S. market, but the prices from The Phone House indicates that LG will be imposing a premium charge for the tablet due to its 3D capabilities. That may be disheartening, but if you are simply looking for a Honeycomb tablet at a fair price, ACER and ASUS may be the best options once they arrive.

    $1200 for a tablet? Seriously? If these manufacturers plan to actually sell successfully against competition like the iPad 2 they need to sell at the $499 price point.

    Insane prices… this is why Android tablets won’t sell. The succes of Android phones lies in their cheaper prices.

      Not really. The success of Android phones has been around feature rich devices like the DROID EVO, and Galaxy S which were all priced at $200 with new contracts.

      But to your point, you guys should focus on the two cheaper tablets which do not have 3G chips. The Acer Iconia will probably be prices at $399 when it makes it to the U.S. market. European prices are always higher than what we pay here in the U.S.

    F*#k the europeans and their VAT tax. Hope we never get that crap here in the USA, but with the socialists in office spending us into oblivion, it’s inevitable.

    Oh and yea, $1200 for a tablet?? Get the F outta here with that. I’d buy a Macbook Pro for $1199 before I buy that tablet.

    Forgive me if I’m wrong, but don’t a lot of American states have a sales tax which is essentially what VAT is?

    The early adopter always pays a premium.

    The price will come down

    I am typing this on a g pad that is extremely wonderful (after tweaking it)

    It will do just fine until honeycomb prices come down. Maybe windows based tablets start making progress?

    The really important thing is software and windows will have the most and most powerful for a long time to come

    I don’t understand why windows tablets don’t seem to be competing
