    My XOOM's just arrived - I'll have to checkout Aldiko -- does it Sync?

    Congratulations on the Xoom!!!

    Aldiko is a standalone reader no syncing I'm aware of.

    Doh -- If I'm going to be able to use these over my ipad's - I need them to sync between Phone/Tablet. I'm warming to the Kindle App now that I know I can get my Epub's on it in the form of Mobi's -- just need to update Calibre so it will sync and have covers.

    True. But since there doesn't appear to be a way to side load a .mobi file in the native app at least the Kindle app works.
    Not true. I just tested it by dragging on of my drm-free .mobi books to the kindle directory and it is right there with the rest of the kindle library and plays just fine.
    I was refering to the "native" Google reader app and there is no way to side load a mobi file that I have found.

    Oh, right I tried to figure that out for a half-hour or so and didn't find a way. I just use Aldiko or FBReader for epubs anyway. Epub is my preferred format in any case.

    I have and it is now my first choice for reading epubs on the Xoom. The animated page turns are lightning fast and turns are synchronized with the speed of one's swipe. The books display beautifully. As the current app is not yet optimized for Honeycomb I have experienced only one glitch thus far when using the Xoom's back button from some parts of the app but it is easily dealt with by pressing the home tile in the nook app to return to the home page.

    It's reported that an updated app should be available this spring.

    Is it possible to install the Nook app even if you don't have a nook or B&N account?

    Oops, turns out you can install it, but it wants a B&N account....which I realized I actually have so just signed in and downloaded my books.

    Disturbingly the app crashed three times as I was doing that... hmmm....

    I believe you must have, or create, an account. It will prompt you for the information before the app will install. You should give it a try -- it displays epubs beautifully and the UI is far superior to Kindle. :-)

    Yep - lots of crashes here with Nook on the xoom. I would press on with Nook if there was some way to get sideloaded epub's to SYNC last page.
