    Yes! The once awesome screen on my D2G now seems tiny. That being said, I used it all day long at work to keep the Xoom tethered to my wifi hotspot. Good thing I did not get the Verizon $20 data plan, I have already downloaded over 1G.

    The phone will be the preferred device when I am mobile and travelling very light.

    The Xoom is faster, and has a much better browsing experience, don't you think?

    I miss the dad thingy though.

    I can't put the Xoom down! Seriously thinking about downgrading to a basic phone!

    I can't say I have a zoom...but I do have a nook color and it has drastically cut down the use on my Droid. For the price, you can't beat the nook color. $250 no contract with 3g from my phone tether.

    Not really, but yeah a bit. I love the browsing experience on the Xoom. My computer is getting neglected as much or more than my DroidX. :snicker:

    I can't put the Xoom down. I haven't touched my laptop in two days, everything through the Xoom.

    I downgraded my Droid from Liquid Gingerbread to a 2.2 based Bugless Beast, disconnected service on it, keep it in airplane mode at all times(with WiFi enabled, basically no radios but WiFi on) and use it as a PMP(for when I work out really) and an XBMC remote.

    I'm going on a business trip all next week and the xoom not my laptop is coming with me. My work phone is a dumb phone, I should just suspend service on my droid and get the 3g on my tablet.

    One day in and there is a significant change in use.I would hang. Up my Incredible if the Zoom doubled as a proper cell phone.

    Definitely using my Droid less. Almost making me reconsider the Thunderbolt purchase, but I'll probably still do it anyway. Like others have said, the phone screen now seems ridiculously small.
