Yeah, but it does have those things
I have an iPad and mostly love it, but not having Flash is huge. There are entire websites developed in Flash, not just videos.

At that point, I will probably give up my iPhone, too, and go to something else.
I am sure the frustration I feel of having a fraction of the internet available to me is going to make me sever those ties eventually. Perhaps, the hotels I stay at in my way too many business trips will actually get wifi that functions and I can blow off a data plan completely. Until that happens, I am stuck.
And I hate it. As a consumer, I do not have choices, unless I want to pay a fortune.
Ah, love that free market. None of this feels free at all.

Even though I recently purchased an iPad, I am looking forward to the Xoom since it will be the real first Android-based iPad competitor. I have an Android phone and love it, but I'm more interested in real competition in the tablet market.
I'm hoping we hear some news on the Wi-Fi only version here pretty soon. I've already got my rooted Android phone with wireless tethering, so I don't need another data device. The Wi-Fi only version will be perfect.
