    I saw the commercial and it said it would be at the store, so probably both.

    After having for one day I am enjoying. My concern is the data package. I have unlimited on my phone and the 2 gig on my xoom. I have only had it a day and am 1/8 through my data and have not done anything but download apps and surf the web a little. I have it connected to my wifi but the 4G is so much faster. I can't see streaming videos and music and stay under the 2 gig. With three phones and one tablet all with data I can't see upgrading the data package because of price. I guess I am just ranting about not having unlimited data on the tablet..

    Capt. Dan I bought mine yesterday and did all my downloading on wifi and my data usage didn't budge from where it had been with my galaxy tab. I know that 4g is way faster but until VZW realizes that the tiered data packages won't work for 4g devices I'll stick with wifi. Also if you notice your using more data than you want to while mobile there is an app called "LTE on off" in the market to turn the 4g off and use 3g.

    I am loving the Xoom, so much easier on the eyes than my thunderbolt. It just seems like such a waste of wonderful 4G service to be limited. I don't know what I have been doing on my phone but am close to 4 gig and still have over a week before the end of my billing cycle. I am guessing after a few weeks the downloads will slow down but still have to watch music and videos...

    It would be nice to just be able to slide a phone into a tablet similar to a lapdock or connect through Bluetooth.

    Did anyone else order online through Verizon? I used an upgrade for a MiFi to get the Xoom for my wife for Christmas. When I check my order status it tells me that it is processing, to check back later. Anyone else experiencing the same problem??
