    Lmao.... did you guys not do any research before buying your xoom? Its not like you are early adopters like those of us with launch lte models.

    Enjoy your ipads.... my ipads and Ipad 2s have literally sat since receiving my xooms.

    aside from this, the stock browser froze on me, i had to reboot it.

    any my main gripe is, that i use ubuntu as my only OS, and the xoom doesnt get recognized when connected. there is a fix for this, but it doesnt work all the time. im very dissapointed in that aspect.
    The Xoom is probably not best suited for the *ehmm..* typical iPad user. I've shared my Xoom with a few people that I know and I told them "The iPad is probably better suited for you".

    The Xoom is a pretty beefy tablet, and it will take some customization to get it working great. I know that for the average person "customization" is a very scary long word. If you are use to the simplistic workings of an iPad.. go for it.. that's awesome! If you would like a little bit more freedom, and the ability to customize... the Xoom is probably for you.

    Ps I've had android since the g1. I apologize for assuming they put standard things on a 600 dollar tablet so the consumer doesn't have to wreck the out of box unit and void the warranty.

    Silly us.

    Stay cool D.B

    huh? im not an ipad user, ive never owned any apple product. I was speaking on the things i noticed between my xoom and my dx. BUT, after spending another day with it, i can now say that some of those negatives have turned into positives. i switched to dolphin hd and my downloads are going at better speed and download properly.

    also, instead of connecting via usb, i will connect via bluetooth. So my two biggest gripes have been solved, and i will keep my xoom.
