I think it's over priced also. I was in the mall at the Verizon kiosk and one of the girls was trying to make a sale to me. She also offered the Galaxy Tab to me but I told her I wasn't interested in 2.2. I'll probably go back when the price goes down. No sooner than that though.

I really have no interest in paying laptop prices for a tablet, but I did test drive the Xoom recently in a Verizon store and have to admit despite its price, it offers far more value than a comparably equipped ipad2 based on what it can do. I also felt that it was a smooth experience and in no way inferior to the ipad2 which seemed to me to be just a scaled up (in size and price) iphone. The poor Xoom sales compared with the lines for the ipad2 completely baffles me. I'd like to think it's because of the less storage and wi-fi only options on the ipad2, but my better sense tells me it's more likely brainwashing.
Xoom = $800 ($600 with contract)
Larger screen and higher resolution
Front and Rear Camera
SD card slot
iPad has NONE of these things, and even the iPad 2 only has a few of them but not all
The pricepoint between the iPad 2 and the Xoom are similar as they are the only two devices similar in hardware. Of course the original iPad is half price, because its old tech that is half the worth of the Xoom.
But after some of the reviews of the iPad 2 and its problems (backlight bleed, yellow specs in the screen, massive shipping delays for online orders and other problems). I'm glad I stuck with a company that has always left me happy and not gone with Apple who is happy sticking it to the customers.

I think the ipad vs xoom debate is played out. Personally I think they are two totally different machines. I am partial to the xoom as I own one but looked at both in making my decision. As for paying laptop price for a tab, That's exactly what I wanted. I haven't carried my laptop for three weeks. The flash is sweet and I like androids open platform vs apples do what we tell you platform. The biggest factor for the xoom for me is no iTunes. Drag and dropping of any file anywhere on my device was a big factor. Everyones got their opinion and mine is the ipad is nothing more than an oversized iPod as to where my xoom has replaced my laptop and can be used as a true business machine.
I agree... your either an Ipad user or a xoom user. The debate is getting old as s$*t. If you want a device that does everything for you and your not technical get an Ipad. If your a person who is technical and likes to try new things go with the xoom. Its the same effin debate between mac and pc. Im in IT and would rather never use a device again than use anything by apple but does that mean crap? No, its my opinion. I have a Friend who is opasite but hes a fa@@et. Lmao
