Hardware wise I think it is a bit of a stretch to say the iPad 2 "owns" the Xoom. I would say Apple did what it needed to do to stay on a level playing field with the current and soon to be released Android tablets. Both have comparable processing and graphics capabilities so I would call that a wash. When it comes to ports the Xoom comes out ahead. When it comes to apps the iPad has the Android tablets by the short hairs. This will be an interesting year to sit back and see what happens. After seeing what Apple brought with the iPad2 I have no doubt that there will be an iPad3 before the year is out.
