Ok.. I admit it. I was an Android Snob. I detested anything with an apple on it. And for a smartphone... I think the Droid X is still about as good as it gets right now. I love the customization of android and so when they announced a tablet I was all over that like white on rice. I couldn't wait. I however wanted to be able to compare it to the ipad/ipad 2. So this past Tuesday I had the opportunity to drive to the apple store an hour away and try out the Xoom at the nearby cellphone store.
So the ipad was nice... smooth, sleek and speedy. I then went to try out the Xoom, and as much as I wanted to LOVE it... I just didn't. It seemed klunky and buggy. My youtube video stopped three times. I did like some of the menu button placement, and the customization options with live widgets and such, but it felt like there was still a lot of kinks that needed to be worked out.
I went back to the apple store and ran the SAME youtube video on the ipad and it was flawless and my mind was made up. It was 1 pm in the afternoon and they had 32gb wifis in stock and stupidly told them I needed to talk to my husband before purchasing. ( I hadn't realized they were still so hard to get ahold of) After talking with him that night I tried to call and then was met with the shortages everywhere. I was kicking myself. Luckily I have a great husband and he used his day off of work to sit at the Apple store first thing and came home with my new little bundle of love... a 32 GB White Ipad 2. I had requested black, and when I told him to go ahead and get it I had every intention of returning it for a Black when I found one, but the white is REALLY growing on me and I think I will keep him!
As long as I have been fighting joining the apple family, I have been really impressed with the service and product. I intend on keeping my Droid X ( I can't part with the big screen and widgets) but I am a PROUD ipad lover!
BTW..I also fell in love with the iMac ( photography hobbiest with Photoshop needs) while I was at the Apple Store. Can you say.. as soon as they have a new model?
