    Convince me to stick with it!

    I'm on my second Xoom now, the first I returned after having wifi issues (it also locked into bootloader at Best Buy), and to be honest, the second one isn't much better, where some problems were solved, others were found, and I really need some convincing to keep this thing and to not dump it in favor of either a better android tablet or *shudder* the ipad 2.

    Please sound off in support or if you have had similar troubles.

    Of course! I have had some wifi issues with both of them, issues connecting and maintaining a connection. These issues don't occur on any of my families laptops or my dads iPad so I'm fairly sure its not my wifi but I have not gotten a chance to test it out somewhere else. Also, I have had general software issues, difficulty transitioning between apps through hyperlinks, and issues with the market taking me straight to an open app when I go to my apps.

    I know that new products will have issues, but frankly this is kind of ridiculous, not only are there these issues, but things like the microsd card slot not working and having to send it off for the 4g upgrade just frustrate me and make me not like the Xoom right now.

    Well I think you already know my first suggestion, test the WiFi at another location (preferably one where you or a friend might have some control over the network) and see if you have the WiFi issue. If you do then I would suggest a stock reset and try again.

    As for the apps/hyperlinks I'm not totally clear of what the issue is.

    The market is setup on the Xoom that if you open the market it usually takes you back to the last page it had open which could be the issue (Usually after you hit the home button rather that the back button). Not sure if this is what you mean or it take you into a totally different app all together.


    As for the SD card, ya I think Moto dropped the ball on that one, but hey its still an SD card slot you would never get on an iPad.

    The upgrade thing? Well it is a hassle but again its a free upgrade to 4G, which is again nothing you would ever get from Apple....

    I forgot to mention that I had tested it at Best Buy when I went in to return it, the same wifi issues occured in store for the reps. When the guy took it into the back to look at it better or something, he came back out with at that point a very expensive paperweight. He had somehow locked up to the bootloader. I am not sure what he did, but I don't want it to happen to me at some point down the road.

    I was using google reader yesterday, which I know is not optimized, but I do not think that that is the reason that when I clicked on a link, it would occasionally send me to a flickering home screen. The screen would artifact and flicker, but when I pressed the home button everything would return to normal. This is more of an annoyance than a serious problem.

    The market: after I install an app, occasionally, when I went back to "my apps", it would launch me into the app that I had downloaded, even if I had downloaded it a few hours ago.

    Sounds like you are not ready for the xoom and it is not ready for you. Tons of wifi issues - or should I say folks reporting wifi issues with the original Ipad - even a fewfor the Ipad 2.

    I have two xoom's - two ipad 2's - several ipad 1's --- No problems with WIFI although the Ipad's have significantly less range than any of my other devices.

    Pick up a Ipad2 -- its a great device targeted to a different audience - Possibly YOU.
