    I bought mine today at Best Buy. I seriously have a love-hate (more hate) relationship with that place, but I don't want to rant, so I'll leave it at that. That said, I haven't turn it on yet--too much confusion in my house as the in-laws and other extended family dropped by while I was out buying the device; the wife didn't give me a heads up, but I'm trying to be polite, so no playing with it for the tonight. I will definitely give it a spin tomorrow.

    picked mine up today as well, tried it out. my Droid Global already rooted so no trouble tethering with the Xoom. setting up my office docs and im good to go....btw, can't beat the price of $400 +tax. how? cause my best buy silver premiere had a lot of rewards LOL. then go to Verizon to get the accessories for 25% off. life really is great...

    Aloha from Hawaii...

    correct, you're not attaching it to a data plan or anything just $599+tax.

    Waiting for my Xoom on a Fedex truck as I type this. I'm so anxious for the doorbell:icon_ banana:

    Got my Xoom around 3 today. Been messing around with it for a bit and it's great. I really like 3.0, it's nice and smooth, but I did run into a couple of FCs.

    I uploaded most of my media that I want on the device, now I gotta get some ebooks on it.

    Any apps or things you guys recommend?

    and it's a 10" Navi. I didn't know it came with a gps unit in it, this is crazy:icon_eek:
