    Kindle on the Xoom

    I'm considering purchasing a xoom to use Kindle on. Anyone have any experience with how Kindle is on it?

    The Kindle app works just fine even though it is not yet specifically designed for Honeycomb. It looks exactly the same just with a larger dimension and the 16:9 aspect ratio is perfect for replicating a paper book when used in portrait mode. The page turns are not quite as smooth, with a half-second hesitation but nothing bothersome. The covers are stunning on the Xoom's gorgeous display!

    This. It works fine but is "plain-jane" as compared to the nifty google book reader that is already installed (with the page flip animations etc.).

    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.

    Does the google book reader allow importing and reading of epubs?

    The kindle itself is slow to turn pages - the app's that I have tried on both IPad and Droid X are also slow to change pages. It's quite annoying when you are used to being able to change pages as fast as you can click the button - Here's hoping that the XOOM changes pages w/out the dreaded delay.

    But you can always use Aldiko. It's working great on the Xoom as well. Or FB Reader -- open source.
