I went to Best Buy today and used the Xoom for about 20 minutes. Overall I like it, I also have experience on the iPad. I don't know the Android interface as I have an iPhone. Overall I have always felt the iPad is just too simple. The lack of a notification tray and the Safari browser has kept me from buying one. Also the Apple app restrictions will never change.
The Xoom was fast, smooth and I did not have much issue navigating around. But my one gripe was rotating the device. I had seen someone else comment on the issue and it's terrible. It takes around 7 seconds for it to sense any movement and in some cases it just never rotates. Does anyone know if that is hardware problem with the Xoom or a software issue?
I am interested in the WiFi only version. I saw comments today on Engadget that SamsClub has them for $540. Does anyone know if the WiFi version has GPS? I am going to assume no since the GPS chip seems to be embedded with the 3G chipsets.
