    I use the Xoom every day at work, and the weight gets to you after awhile. When the iPad 2 comes out, I will be hopefully able to use that on the retail floor.

    Meh. It sucks imo. Its nowhere near the quality it was advertised to be. The apps right now are garbage and all the work required to make it even a decent device is just not worth it imo.

    That's too bad. Guess it's perhaps just too early in the game, not enough apps ready for it yet, etc. Apple does make quality, that's for sure. Well, less than two days to go and you'll have your iPad 2, eh??

    There are also the exploits that someone used to get past the Apple controllers that aren't mentioned in the article, but really all they are saying is smart phones and tablets are computers, so people will write malware for them, so beware.

    Android or iOS, people need to take a second to think about the free or paid apps they're about to install, like they would for any other method of downloading and installing software they might use.

    Have fun,

    You're contradicting yourself.. The Motorola Xoom runs Honeycomb, not Gingerbread, therefore it is vulnerable.

    Read the article.

    Why?
    The article states that the hole is present in android OS prior to Gingerbread. Since Honeycomb is newer then Gingerbread, it can be assumed that the security hole is not present.

    Assumed is right. But that is not what he said....

    "It specifically states in the article that Honeycomb is not vulnerable to these types of attacks."

    That is of course not true since the article didn't ever mention Honeycomb.

    Honeycomb and Gingerbread are two different OS's. Honeycomb is a tablet OS, Gingerbread is for mobiles. Those two flavours will marry up in the next "Ice Cream Cake" release in a few months, hence you can't assume Honeycomb has all the security features that Gingerbread has. Perhaps Honeycomb is invulnerable, but you can't assume that just because Gingerbread is. I'd rather see proof.
