    Here is one giant reason its not better. Moto has only sold 100k while the ipad has sold tens of millions. Spec wise sure the Xoom may have an edge but where it matters most, sales, its not even a competition as of yet.

    I would have to agree with you Apple has a Huge Following.. Some people will buy poop if it had an Apple symbol on it. If the price of the Xoom came down to match the ipad2 it would not make a difference because Xoom is fairly a new product and Apple ipad is in their 2nd or third year. I would go with the Xoom Spec wise. I am waiting for them to bring the price down on it. I will have one before the end of the year...

    haha, yeah I would like to see them knock the price down a bit as well. That's actually why I am interested in the Asus tabs more than the Xoom.

    Just because the ipad sells more doesn't make it a better device hahaha the ipad has a 2 year jump in sales on the xoom so of course it's going to have higher sales

    Well, actually if you want to compare sales, the iPad 2 which was released AFTER the Xoom has sold far more than the Xoom.

    But, "better" is a VERY loose term, the ipad has definitely had "better" sales....but as far as being a "better" device, it all personal opinion.

    right but the iPad2 sold 600,000 at it's initial launch, the Xoom not so much.

    Exactly, I was speaking strictly from a business standpoint. It is up the consumer to decide which one they think is better. These devices are all so well made that it really is a matter of personal preference.

    Great iMarketing never actually makes an item any better than the next, it just brain washes more people into thinking its iBetter.

    McDonalds doesn't sell the most hamburgers in the world because they taste any better than the others out there.

    ^We never said it did.....but again, the entire point of a company is to make money and Apple knows how to do that VERY well.

    I wonder if that was WOZ and the gang's true focus, in that little garage in cupertino so many moons ago.

    Huh?

    Apple as a company also gives quite a bit, between charity donations and such.

    Also, Steve Jobs doesnt even take a salary (ok, he gets $1/year, literally). Yes he does make bank on his stocks of the company, but he could easily take a huge salary as well.

    Im no Apple fanboy (obviously, Im on here and own a TB) but let not kid ourselves....

    EVERY company is out there to make money, as much as they can. Motorola or HTC are no different.
