    Does it have to do with the price and the fact you have to pay for a data plan for 2 years?

    Wow, the Xoom got stomped. It costs more than the iPad 2 and can't even outperform it.

    Everybody keep in mind the iPad2 also has a lower resolution than the Xoom and the software doing the benchmarking could be better optimized for iOS. Its hard to benchmark across platforms and truly tell the real results. I think these are more Apple fanboys just trying to bash Android and make the Xoom look bad. I'd take these results with a grain of salt.

    Anand is no Apple fanboi. I've been visiting his site for over a decade for hardware reviews. I have never seen him lean one way or another. As I said in my first post this was a preliminary review. A more in-depth review that covers everything will be available soon. I'm sure it will cover all the hardware aspects including cpu power.

    Let me let you in on a little secret, just because someone likes or gives a favorable review to something you don't like, that doesn't make them a fanboy. Please act mature.

    It's a little bit surprising... I would have thought that nVidia's Tegra 2 would have a better showing, considering nVidia has been in the high performance graphics game for so long.

    PowerVR makes a hell of a chip though, I've got to hand it to them.

    The iPad2 is a seriously impressive piece of hardware.
