Damn spilt my coffee......
There will be no complaints, I already know I like the features offered by it better, I already know I like Honeycomb (after playing around with it on a Nook color), and I already know that it won't be locked down like the iPad is, so I can enjoy it more. Will it be perfect? Of course not, will it be substantially better than the iPad for me? Oh hell yes.
I have to wonder how you could use Honeycomb on a Nook when they have not even issued it to the manufacturers yet. And a Nook does not have the muscle to make it work.
Do a Google search. The hackers/developers over on XDA got it running on a Nook a few weeks ago. It runs the basic operating system fine, I didn't try any games or anything, but I used it enough to get a good feeling of the interface.
The Nook might be slow stock, but in can be overclocked to run it better.
My wife and I owned the Xoom for about 16 hours. During that time, we both logged about 2 hours each on the device. Our wrists have never hurt so bad in our entire lives. Do not try to play games on it, for holding it up to use the tilt function kills your wrists after about 20 minutes. We found ourselves finding inventive ways to try to prop it up and still use the gyro function.
Additionally, we were disappointed not to see more apps tailored to the Xoom on the market yet. The lack of Flash at launch along with the failure for Motorola to work with Skype to make a running version that utilizes video chat at launch was also disappointing. It's like getting a new car with "A/C" available in the future but that can't be used right now, and you live on the surface of the sun...
Motorola constantly appears to be doing the same thing with their devices, rushing them/making them big and clunky. Go back to the Razr team and figure out where you're going wrong!
