With the announcement of the Motorola Android Tablet hoping coming next week at CES, it's time for a new section dedicated to the Motorola Xoom!
Anyone thinking about making this tablet their next purchase?
I had an Ipad and really liked it, then I got a Droid X and focused most of my attention on it. I finally gave the Ipad to my daughter permanently. But now I kind of miss that form factor. The Ipad had a lot of good stuff, but it also had a bunch of limitations. I really like the Android OS. I have a bunch of widgets I use and a lot of other good stuff. The Xoom should be a wonderful product. I am particularly interested in the video calling. Skype just came out with a mobile video app for the Iphone and they have hinted that the Android version should not be far behind. I am impressed with Motorola. Their stuff works. I particularly liked when they were quick to update their Droid X when a few glitches appeared. Apple is very slow to update anything. No word on whether the battery in the Xoom will be user replaceable. It is kind of dumb to have to return the Ipad to Apple, then have them send you another one for $99, just to get the battery replaced. Hope Motorola addresses this.
PS. Thanks to DAN for creating this forum!!!!!
I had a little fun and dropped this onto another forum, just for grins and to see if anyone got it!!
" Motorola Tablet accidentally left in bar"
It was found on the bar, right in front of an Engadget photographer and an Ifixit tear down guy!!! Unbelievable. We'll have all the details soon!!!!
If we are making guesses on pricing I am gonna guess 700. And I will not buy it unless it is under 400...i'll just go buy an archos.

The specs certainly seem to indicate that the Xoom will connect with either 3G or Wifi. I certainly hope it acts like the Ipad which defaults to Wifi when it senses a connection and when it doesn't, it goes to 3G, just like the Droid also. If there is not WiFi, there is no sale for me.
