    How do you like yours? Does it feel solid? I was looking at the galaxy 10.1. But it feels very flimsy. And it doesn't have the sd slot or hdmi. But now the XOOM is the same price for more features and more memory i'll be picking one up soon

    I love the thing, haven't used my netbook around the house ever since I got it back on release day.

    It's very solid and has some good weight to it, especially after using it for awhile, but I have one of those cases that acts as a stand as well (which i highly recommend you get a case).

    Great piece of technology and can't wait to take it on the road with me during my upcoming roadtrips.

    it's not activated.

    meaning you put an SD card in there, it won't read. Sort of a bummer, but I have need for it as the xoom comes with plenty of room stock

    I heard that you can get the driver over at xda developers. I may be wrong but I've heard it a few times.
