Had a chance to play with the Xoom and iPad side by side at a Verizon store. Web browsing was faster on the iPad. The iPad display looked a lot better. Will be interesting to see what the Toshiba tablet looks like. Maybe in 2 years Android tablets will be a good option. For now, I'm sticking with the iPad.

I welcome you're disagreement with open arms, but if cheapness was a concern of motorola they should have considered not getting in a spec war with apple. The normal person does not car if you marginally beat the iPad in some categories. The ease of use and intuitive nature of the iPad are much more appealing than the "openness" of android products. IMO

Not sure that apple with it's projected sales this year will have to great of a lead. Similar to the iPod story vs. any other music playing device. My crystal ball says to me that I will have a ipad3 next year just like I have a ipad2 this year and a ipad1 last year.
there seem to be 2 version of the screen going around or 2 that have been tweaked differently. still it's no ips screen for sure.
honeycomb is pretty nice and as close as most tablets have gotten to a desktop experience. but it's not finished. not even the eee pad transformer has it's sd card slot working yet.
it's a nice tablet, but a bit behind what the ipad 2 is. the asus eee pad can be a better competitor as it too has an ips screen and all the insides of the xoom and $100 less ( 16GB for $399 and 32GB for $499).
i'll most likely be returning my xoom... i may get an ipad 2 as the target near me has had a few 32GB white ones in stock.
I'm not saying it's right ,just that Moto is more concerned about the bottom line than repeat customers or producing a long lasting, easy to use product. Their definition of QC seems to mean Quite Crappy not quality control. I know some will chime in and say their Moto Droid whatever model is the greatest thing ever built but that is the exception ,not the rule. The return rate for Moto products due to defects is higher than all other brands combined is about 2-1 according to my friend who is a tech rep at my local Verizon store. After playing with a Xoom it seems to me like they tried to make it "feel" more quality, like when some cheap home phones add a heavier battery for a feeling of quality, but I agree it ,IMO, is a failed attempt at all categories. That is coming from an Android fanboy who doesn't like that the Xoom gives Android a bad name

If you are not an avid android user then it could be frustrating! I love the screen on the zoom just uncomfortable in portrait mode! That's cause it was built, including os and build, to be used in portrait!
iPad lags and crashes every now it then it just docent seem as bad apple does a good job of hiding it and have a great self maitnence on the iPad and it got much better with the two! Just wait for the quad cores comming out later this year, and possibly the iPad 3 also (rumors you know) but I think then and the improvent in honeycomb they will be much closer comparison.
Here's me in one year: Xoom what?
