    Goodbye Xoom!

    Hey guys. So I think I am going to sell my xoom, which has yet to recieve a 4g chip in it. I learned that I don't use 3g nor 4g with my tablet. I want to sell it for an ip2, because, well to be honest, I hate my xoom. I've tried not to, but I just can't help (lol). Do you think I should wait to sell it for the 4g chip to be put in or sell it now? I'm not sure when it will be worth more. Thanks!

    P.S. Xoom for sale :P

    So excited for

    Welcome to the Forum. I had a play with a Xoom at the local Verizon store while they were trying to straighten out our account. Spent a good 20 or 30 minutes with it. No matter how hard I tried I just couldn't like it. My iPad just seemed so much better in so many ways and on so many levels. So I get where you're coming from. It's too bad, I really did want them to succeed because competition spurs innovation (witness the Droid/iPhone battle), but the Xoom isn't going to be the "iPad killer" the pundits had hoped for.

    That said, electronics, particularly computer electronics rarely if ever appreciate...even with added bells and whistles. Me? I'd put a Xoom on the market now before the shine wears off...and it's already started. Hey, at least you don't have to unload a Sammy Galaxy or one of RIM's Playbooks!

    Best of luck and let us know how it goes!

    I sold my Xoom on eBay for $675 a month or so ago. Wish I'd gotten more for it but I was happy to get that. Felt like I had to get rid of it before Google did any more damage.

    $799 was the original Xoom, not sure whether the prices have dropped, yet.

I think I may eventually bite on the Nook Color - now that it runs apps, it's a cheap entry-level Android tablet ($250, I think?)....

    I really haven't spent enough time with the Zoom to truly evaluate it, but I personally would love to get away from Apple.... I need more customization! Currently, my iPad 1 is jail broken, so it's keeping me happy, but I',m a little worried about upgrading to a newer iPad (was planning to jumping on the iPad 3 when it comes out) but seeing the issues they are having with jail breaking the iPad 2, I'm a little nervous that Apple may be able to make the iPad 3 non-jailbreakable - and I will not buy another Apple product until it has already been jail broken... Apple just limits the devices too much for my taste.

    So, Apple, listen up - some customers WILL move away once Apple completely stops people from fully customizing their device (I'm one!). Maybe Apple makes the best tablet hardware (I'm not so convinced of that either though - third iPad in a year!), but if I can't make the device do what I want it to do, it's all for nothing!

    A perfect example is widgets on the lock screen - I've never seen a better example of "wasted real-estate" than the damn lock screen. Of course, since I'm jail broken, I can still get what I want (SmartScreen)! Same with custom sounds for new emails, etc... Come on - VERY basic stuff there!

    Fortunately most of us don't need the aggro of customisation.
    Widgets was the first thing I disabled on setting up my mac

    Interesting... I haven't found one person who saw the widgets on my iPad screen and then didn't want it for their iPad? What possible reason would there to be to look at a blank screen compared to a screen with information that you want on it?
