    What's some reasons to get xoom over ipad2?

    What's some reasons to get xoom over ipad2?
    I know Android is open source, but not sure the benefits of open source os if you not a rooter.

    What are the benefits to getting xoom over ipad2. I know Iam a fanboy of android, but I am willing to look past that if there are some true benefit to getting a ipad2. What do you recommend and why?

    As with any "Which device should I get?" thread -- start with your needs/wants rather than trying to work at it backwards. The reasons that other people have for choosing one or the other don't matter. It's reasons that matter to you that are important. Polling isn't the way to determine your preferences.

    Apples and oranges. Open source and rooting aren't directly related to begin with.

    Thank you dude, most people on this forum equate open source with hackability.. Open source has almost zero to do with anything on this forum. (Other than for the devs) iOS is NOT open source, yet it has been hacked the most.... WinMo is another non open source OS... And its also been hacked...

    Open source has to do with the manufacturers getting the OS license for free, and being allowed to modify that source code to their liking... Which Google is now trying to limit....

    Nailed down to 5 main reasons why do you need a tablet including size, usability, apps, wifi or not, etc. Then go to Apple store to test the ipad, then do a same for the Xoom....then give Playbook a try as well. Don't read too much into survey and people suggestions.

    my 2 cents

    Flash. I never realized how many sites need it until I got and ipad and I can't access them
    Deep Thought #1
    How does Verizon sell phones at their own stores? Any phone they sell, can be found for 50% to 75% less on Amazon, or at Best Buy. Does Verizon operate their stores on a "there is a sucker born every minute" business model?
    Deep Thought #2
    Is Verizon's customer service philosophy: frustrate, aggravate, and exasperate, these annoying interruptions to our day, will eventually go away?

    Flash is a big selling point. Also expandable memory.

    It's easier to use as a media device in my opinion, just drag and drop. You don't have to go through iTunes and all that.

    The iPad no doubt is more polished, but i love my Xoom. I use it everyday at home and use it more than my netbook. I can hook it up to my tv via HDMI without any extra adapters and I can use a remote Desktop app (phonemypc).

    It really is a great device, but it's a bit pricey. However I spent much time debating whether to get one or not and I can definitely justify spending the money on it.
