    not getting a wow factor at all from this release. Seems Asus stepped up their game but Motorola is pretty much releasing what the xoom should have been when it came out last year...

    Hmm, I'm really not sure if I'm liking all these new corners... I guess it's OK on the razr but I'd much rather just have rounded...
