Terrific Device! A++++Posted .
I have the 3G/4G Version and I could not be happier. It screams through webpages with full flash and intuitive controls with tabbed browsing. I previously owned a First Generation Ipad, it and even the Ipad 2 seem horibly identicle to my 3 year old Ipod touch. Honeycomb is a true tablet experience!!! XOOM For the Win! Don't see how there is even a consideration now that the xoom sells for the same price as a comparably equiped Ipad. Full HDMI mirroring to a TV is a BEAST! Xooming for a solid month now!I would recommend this to a friend

best android honeycomb tablet out therePosted .
this is the best android honeycomb tablet out there right now. i already own ipad1, ipad2, and i wanted to play with the android honeycomb. threw down $589. at bestbuy and picked one up. before picking up, i did my homework and read everyones review on bestbuy, amazon, and watched all of the youtube videos. i was definitely interested. heavy compared to ipad2 but a manly heft weight. although buggy and crashes sometimes. if your not so technical person, then get the ipad, because the ipad just works and the app store will fill you with happy, happy, joy, joy. this xoom tablet still needs some polishing and i think by the time ice cream sandwich comes out in Q4 2011, everything should be good and i'm praying the app store for the tablet will grow. at this moment, there only 64 tablet apps. power button is in a very strange location and wish the volume rocker stuck out more. but over all im very happy with this tablet and its a keeper for me.I would recommend this to a friend

The winner, ALMOST perfect. 4 1/2 stars?Posted .
I have tested each of the most popular Honeycomb Tablets ( Transformer, Iconia A500, and the Xoom) for about a week, and for me, the Xoom takes its place on the winners stand on my nightstand. Here is why. After testing the others, I found the Xoom to have the most solid, quality construction. The anodized aluminum casing feels top quality. Everything fits together tightly, there is no creaking, wobbling or flexing. The glass is smooth and allows for seamless screen gestures. The Iconia came in a close second for design quality and felt very solid too. It has a similar brushed aluminum back. But the top and bottom are a plastic bezel that wraps to the screen. The Transformer's plastic back did have some flex to it and just felt kind of "cheap" compared to the others. The "glass" of the TF felt thin and "sticky". Your fingers didnt glide over it very well and pressing the screen lightly, you could feel it flex as well. Winner: Xoom The display is razor sharp and crisp. Text is sharp and easy to read, pictures, videos, and web pages look top notch. The Iconia sceen looked very nice too. Its screen was even more "vibrant" than the xoom. However the dot pitch (space between pixels) was visible at close look and text was not as crisp. The Iconia only displays 256k colors (compared to the 16 million of the others) and I was able to notice the difference on colorful, high res photos. The TF was a good blend of both, vibrant and crisp. But the two I tested had HORRIBLE back light bleeding on dark images. Something the Iconia and Xoom didn't have. Winner: Xoom Each offers their own feature set. The Iconia has a full sized USB port and it worked well for keyboards, mice and a flash drive (FAT 32). The Xoom has an adapter cable that adapts the microUSB to a full sized USB and allows digital cameras, keyboards, mice etc. to be plugged in. The TF only allows USB connections if you have the keyboard dock ($150), its microUSB slot only seemed to work for PC hookup. They all have microHDMI outputs, mircoSD, blue tooth, wifi, and are dockable. The Transformer has a dock that is an actual keyboard that also adds 2 full sized USB, card readers and additional battery power. A cool feature if you ever want to turn your tablet into an "Android netbook". Its is an additional $150 as I mentioned. Since I am going to use my tablet as a tablet, the keyboard dock is not practical for me. So just as tablets, the Iconia and Xoom offer more. Another small feature of the Iconia is Dolby sound, which actually was a nice touch and sounded great coming out of those little speakers. The speakers on the Xoom sound decent for a tablet, nothing amazing though and only moderate volume. The TF's speakers souded dreadful. They sounded super cheap. The left speaker was louder than the right and they sounded tinny and weak. Winner: Iconia (by a little) Function: All these units pretty much offer a stock Google UI. I must say, am used to Android (i have had 2 Android phones) and Honeycomb is a great OS. Very slick and gets better as the kinks get ironed out. That said, the actual experience of this did actually differ a bit. The Xoom and Iconia were very smooth. Gestures registered instantly and the tablet responded fluently. The TF had the same smoothness, but the action actually seemed to lag behind the actual guesture by a split second. All of them performed well, none of them gave me any issues with unexpected crashes, hangs or force closes. However, overall speed, fluidity and just general user experience seemed to be a bit higher on the Iconia and Xoom. Something that is hard to explain unless you spend some time with each of them. I will note however that the Transformer had issues with powering itself on/off randomly, which is a known issue with some of the TF tablets. Also the Iconia had a tendency for the screen to momentarily come on on its own as well. That is, when "sleeping" it would come on and show the lock screen un provoked. It would shut off again after 30 seconds or so, but was a little disturbing at 3am. The Xoom has none of these issues. Winner: Xoom Accessories: Part of owning a gadget like this is being able to accessorize it to tailor to your specific usage. The Asus unit itself is currently hard to come buy, in most cases it must be special ordered from your big box stores. It is still unlikely (6/9/11) to walk into a store an buy one and walk out with it. The same can be said for the keyboard dock. I am unaware of any other device specific accessories for it at this time except "skin cases" and carry cases. The Iconia has a folio type case that is available now. It has provisions for a docking station (w/remote) and blue tooth keyboard. But as of this writing those are not available yet. There are also a few 3rd party skins and cases for it as well. The Xoom has been available longer and has quite a few different accessories that are quite good. The charging dock and blue tooth keyboard although a bit on the expensive side, are very good. On the other hand the official folio case, official skin, and the HD dock leave a bit to be desired. There are also quite a few 3rd party goodies available at various price points too. Winner: Xoom Parting thoughts: Overall, all these tablets were good additions to the tablet world, each offering their own advantages and disadvantages over each other. For the price of the Asus, you do loose a bit of that quality and Asus quality control on them seems to have been a bit lacking. There seems to be all matter of various issues both common and random being reported with them. The Iconia seems to be a well made, well thought out tablet. If the screen had better pixel density and better colors, i think it would have been the winner. The Xoom just seemed to offer the highest quality construction, and the perfect amount of features, accessories, functionality and overall user experience. The one hangup I have is the microSD. That feature works just fine with the Asus and the Iconia. The hacker/Devs at XDA even figured out how to get it working on the Xoom, why the heck cant Motorola?? I sure hope they get that figured out...they've had 3+ months already! With more and more good Android tablets arriving it wouldn't hurt if Moto dropped the price on the Xoom $50 or so either. (In the next 20 days would be nice so I can take advantage of Best Buy's price match). So, the Xoom is the winner, for now.I would recommend this to a friend

I prefer Xoom over iPad 2 and here's why...Posted .
First of all I want to say that I own both Apple and Google/Android devices. I own iPod Touch and have played with iPad of family member who own the device. I also played with iPad 2 quite a bit at the store as well as from a friend who got it on launch day. I currently own original Motorola Droid and looking to upgrade to newer Android phone this summer. It is difficult not to compare Xoom to its competitor aka iPad 2. Therefore, this review will entail Xoom features (Wifi version) along with comparison to iPad 2. Operating System - An iPad is more akin to a smartphone where as a Xoom is more akin to a laptop. Honeycomb feels more like a tablet. It's not just a row of apps and wasted space like iOS. Plus, you have room for customization (widget, live wallpaper, theme etc). There is also little detail that tech savvy will appreciate (outline grid, advanced settings, google labs etc) Honeycomb is still a bit buggy but not to the point that it becomes annoying. I only have several force closes for 5 hours straight use. Obviously iOS which is a proven OS and was out almost 4 years ago is more stable than the Honeycomb, a brand new OS (optimized for tablet use) that was out a month ago along with its SDK. Google know Honeycomb still needs improvement, I know Honeycomb is unfinished and I don't mind waiting for even better experience. Winner: To each his own but I like Honeycomb better. Design/Apperance/Screen - Xoom is heavier but that is due to a solid build quality which I love. It is also thicker and has wider screen (more appropriate for movies than iPad 2). Although Xoom has higher screen resolution, iPad 2 still has brighter screen and more vivid look. Winner: iPad 2 by little bit User Interface - Some people say Honeycomb is too complicated to use. Well maybe to those who has been using only iPad. For someone who use both, I have to say it is pretty simple to use. iOS is more intuitive and foolproof but there is much more detail on Xoom that many people may appreciate. Winner: Tie Multitasking - One button and it takes you to most 5 recent apps for easy switching on Xoom. iPad 2 sort of have multitasking but not a true multitasking experience. Winner: Xoom Browser - If you use Chrome browser before, it is pretty much like that on Xoom. I prefer tabbed browsing over having to press button to open various windows on Safari. You can type search directly on address bar like Chrome. You can sync bookmarks through your Google account. And yes I know there are other browser apps in the market. But for a stock browser app, Xoom has a better experience. Winner: Xoom Apps - iPad is way ahead in term of apps and it is because original iPad had at least 1 year head start vs Xoom. Not to mention Honeycomb is unfinished and SDK was recently released. However, the tablet apps that are available on Android market (about 50 apps), Most of them work great and look awesome. Give it time. Winner: iPad 2 Customization - This is my favorite part about Android. You have open customization from themes, widgets to customized home screen and live wallpapers. iOS has none of that unless you jailbreak the device. Winner: Xoom Notification - If you have iPhone and iPad, you know how notification can be quite painful. Xoom has better notification system that show up briefly in bottom right corner. You can press it to view all notifications. There is also LED notification on top right of the device. Winner: Xoom Performance - A5 vs Tegra 2 is still up for debate. Xoom seems to be as powerful as iPad 2 with exception of GPU (can be seen with gaming and screen brightness). iPad 2 has 512MB RAM vs 1 GB RAM on Xoom. Winner: ??? Camera/Video/Audio - Better camera and video on Xoom thanks to its higher spec vs VGA front and lower MP back camera on iPad 2. Camera app gets a little bit of time to get used to on Xoom. Speaker on Xoom is pretty good but I wish the volume rocker is more visible on the side. It feels like the button can become stuck into the device. Winner: Xoom Flash - Yes, Flash is still in beta mode but it works great for me so far with a little bit of lagging but barely noticeable. I tested it on sites that use Flash like Engadget (video), Honda (car animation), Vice Versa restaurant in NYC (heavy flash site), Myspace and bandcamp (with music player on artist page). iOS has no Flash AT ALL as we all know. Winner: Xoom by a mile (until HTML5 is fully functional) GPS - Just want to mention that GPS and full Google maps navigation is available on Xoom wifi. While on iPad 2, it is only available if you get 3G+wifi version. And if you use Google maps app before on Android you know that it is more extensive than map on iOS (turn-by-turn voice navigation, layers etc) Winner: Xoom Battery Life - Xoom gets about 8 - 9 hours for heavy multitasking usage. Will have to test standby time but I expect it to be less than iPad 2. iPad 2 gets at least 10 hours of heavy usage. Winner: iPad 2 In the end, you may prefer one device over the other and it is to each his own. However, based on the overall factors I mentioned above, I prefer Xoom.I would recommend this to a friend

Great After Learning CurvePosted .
I have had the opportunity of playing with both the iPad and Xoom after owning both. So I will compare both. GUI - iPad - I first owned the iPad and after playing with it I can see it as a tablet for beginners. Right out of the box anyone can use it. The GUI is straight forward and easy to use. The icons are nice but the notifications were obtrusive, always stopping me in the middle of what I was doing until I dismissed them. Xoom - When i first started playing with the Xoom it took me a little while to figure out where everything was and how to run it. Afterwards I was "xooming" right along. Everything was intuitive and responsive. The notification system is nice as it showed up in the right hand corner without interrupting what I was doing. Winner - Xoom Software - iPad - The iPad does have a significant number of apps out there which gives it an advantage. But as it has had a year head start that will soon become a moot point. Apps made for the ipod touch are set in their native resolution with the ability to magnify 2x. They look pixelated but not unusable. Xoom - The xoom has few tablet dedicated apps but that is slowly changing. Its native ability to expand each phone app to full size is nice with graphics being a little fuzzy but not as bad as the iPad. Some of the apps did lag or stall upon loading but that should be fixed with updates. Winner - iPad (For now) Internet - iPad - The wifi iPad sped right along when connected to wireless routers but stalled when tethered to my phone. Safari is nice but lack of tab support and having to pop up other pages was annoying. But there are browsers out there in the app store that would do that no problem. Xoom - As with the iPad the Xoom sped right along when connected to wireless routers but had no problems when being tethered to my phone. Tab browsing is nice and is something that should come standard right out of the box (hint hint Apple). Winner - Xoom Hardware - iPad - The iPad/iPad 2 have decent specs in terms of hardware making it responsive and fast. I did not use the cameras on the iPad 2 but the resolutions from what I have read are nowhere near that of the Xoom. Xoom - The Xoom's duo-core proc and gig of ram makes the biggest of apps fly right along with little notice of slowing down. The cameras are as what you would expect, 5 MP with HD playback made for some good pictures, not as good as my Droid X but comparable. The 2 MP front camera is more pixelated but given it's normal use of web cam about par with the computer equivalents. What's also nice is the Gorilla Glass screen that makes the tablet very scratch resistant. Even if it makes the Xoom slightly more heavy than the iPad. Winner - Xoom Overall - Right now the iPad has the advantage of its 65,000 apps but the Xoom will eventually catch up. Given the learning curve of the Xoom, even with owning an android phone, causes it to not be as quick to play with right out of the box. However, if you spend enough time with it, it becomes very hard to put down or use anything else. Honeycomb is new and as with all new software it has bugs. But given the software cycle Google uses, those problems will be short lived. If you want simplicity go with an iPad. If you want customizability go with a Xoom.I would recommend this to a friend

Good but could have been better.Posted .
I am both an Ipad user and Google user. I have several Ipod touches, Ipads (1), droid x phone, and now the Xoom. I spent days watching every review on YouTube and reading what ever I could before making the purchase Saturday. My thoughts were this device could actually replace my laptop on business trips as both a sales tool and email/calendar device. However after 3 days of use I can say that is not the case. Overall I am happy with my Xoom even thought there are issues with some core Google Apps (youtube, and Google Books for example) I could use Youtube on the web but not the app. It will not download for some reason. I did a search for this and it seems common. Perhaps I should exchange mine for another one and see if I have the same problem. I factory reset the device several times to see if this would help and it still has the same issues. There is some lag but that is because there is several apps using resources ...generally it works very smoothly. A huge disappointment was the fact there are so many app compatibility issues and the sd card still does not work. That is more of a Google issues but Motorola did jump to be first to market so in my opinion has to bare that cross. My biggest comment is that it takes time to get used to the operating system. The Ipad will have a small learning curve and you can hit the ground running. Most of the reviews that did the VS Ipad2 that did a circle back in 30 days were like wow this is really growing on me. This may be a bad example but its like drive stick to me...horrible at first but a great experience once you get used to it. Its also not for everyone. On the sales side it does have less applications so the opportunity to craft good sales tools is tough with the Xoom. Apple does have the best eco system for apps and Google just has not gotten there yet. I like my Xoom and if your are ok with the newness issues this is your device....I wouldn't blame you if you waited another 3-6 months though. Over all its a good experience but it could have been great if they held off on brining it to market. Oh yea the Netflix issues with the processor and Google security is a huge bummer. I am guessing it may be over a year before we see Netflix. (see this on the web) I would recommend this device to a friend but they would have to be a bit more tech savy. For my 80 year old mom I would her an Ipad...for my son the Xoom. I also do not use I tunes except for apps. I still mostly rip content from CDS or downloads from Amazon.I would recommend this to a friend

Honeycomb is a great UI, flash works like a charm.Posted .
I chose the Motorola Xoom over the Apple iPad for a couple reasons. The first major reason was simply that the iPad was sold out everywhere. I decided to give the Xoom a chance since I already own a Motorola Droid X, and I love it. The Adobe Flash support on the Xoom was another selling point for me. The browser app loaded with the tablet doesn't load flash on ESPN.com unless you do some tweaks, but if you download the Dolphin HD browser, everything works like a charm. The bookmarks can be organized on this browser as well. The Honeycomb OS is awesome. It is so much more customizable than the iPad OS, which makes the Xoom feel more like a computer rather than an over-sized phone. The OS has 5 different screens that you can customize with your apps, widgets, and other items. It's plenty of space, as I've only used up about three screens. I also love the on screen notifications regardless of what application might be running. The one big advantage the iPad2 has on the Xoom however, is App selection. The Honeycomb tablets started coming out earlier this year, whereas the iPad has been out for over a year now. Many tablets are in production and will be released this year, which will inspire developers to create more applications dedicated strictly for the Android tablets. 2011 is truly the year of the tablet! The standard virtual keyboard that comes with Honeycomb is nice, but i prefer the Thumb Keyboard that is available in the marketplace. It allows for a lot faster typing while holding the tablet with both of your hands in landscape mode. The battery lasts me all day. I have gone over two days without having to recharge under moderate use. Google services such as Gmail, Talk, and Youtube work flawlessly. The dual cameras are decent quality and have some nice effects built in. The games work like a charm. I have hooked up my old N64 games with a emulator, and they run flawlessly. I play them using a Wii remote and nun-chuck (It's a Bluetooth controller). It's a lot of fun! The 1280 x 800 resolution is really nice for watching videos, viewing webpages, playing games, and everything else. I paid $599 for the 32GB WIFI version. It's also nice to have an expandable SD card slot to add more memory to it. I truly feel as if this device can be a laptop replacement for the average user. I highly recommend it to everyone. Thanks for reading! By the way, I am not a Apple hater or anything. I am writing this review from a Macbook Pro, I have an iPod classic, and I used to have an iPhone. I prefer having the open source, flash support, and customizable OS. Apple really restricts your ability to do what you want on your device unless you jailbreak it or whatever, which apparently voids your warranty. The Apple store does have a lot of great apps, but again, Android will have more apps developed strictly for tablets since so many manufacturers have them in current/future production. It's all healthy competition between the two juggernauts that is Apple and Google.I would recommend this to a friend

Works just as good as my Android phone but better!Posted .
Just bought the WiFi version of the Xoom tablet and it is great! It has a very fast processor and it is very customizable. It seems to be no limit to what you can do to the platform. If you have an Android phone this will be an easy transition for you. Here is what I discovered from using this tablet: PROS 1. The Honeycomb OS is very similar to my Android phone. 2. The Tegra2 processor lives up to its expectations, very fast and handles multiple applications with ease. 3. The 5mp camera takes good quality pictures and has a bright LED flash. 4. The video is decent quality as well 5. FLASH!!! It handles Flash Websites very well. 6. Customizable - You can add almost any kind of widget and organize it the way you want on your desktop. 7. Remembers my apps - The Android Market remembered all the apps I downloaded on my phone and let me easily see the ones that were compatible with the Honeycomb OS. 8. HDMI is awesome - Was able to easily hook my HDMI cord that I use for my Motorola DroidX to hook the tablet to my flat screen TV. I was able to hear the audio and see the video really clearly on my TV from my tablet. 9. Speaker Volume - Very good quality sound, loud. 10. Screen Resolution - Very good quality but I will admit the Ipad handles color better than the Xoom. CONS 1. Not many apps work with it yet - Since it is a new OS they dont have a lot of apps to use with it but they do have most of the common apps that you would use on a day to day basis. I am pretty sure that more apps will be on the way shortly but it is a brand new OS... 2. OS is buggy - Not really that many problems but I did notice that some apps that I downloaded had to Force Close on their own. Again this is due to them not having many apps for the Honeycomb OS. Most of my apps work but simple apps like the Flashlight app I use kept crashing so I just had to search for a new flashlight app that didnt crash. overall its not really to the point where its annoying but mostly fully functional. 3. Charging Cord - The charger cord for this is just silly. Its like this little pinhole cord that is very easy to break. I recommend if you do get this tablet get the dock charger. PS, they will not let you use your Droid phone charging cord to charge the tablet for some reason they block it. 4. Weight - It is slightly heavier than the iPad but that is partly due to the robust hardware they have running in this tablet. Me and the other tech guys in the office did a light weight benchmark test against the iPad and Xoom takes it hands down. The screen is bigger, its faster, better camera resolution, audio is louder, you can customize it, it has an SD slot for more memory (so you dont have to buy a bigger version for more memory just an SD card) and it has FLASH. So that I dont sound to Pro Android I will say that I own a ipod touch and an older ipod. I will say that if you are a user that doesn't like to think too much and has everything laid out for you then iPad is for you, but if you are a user that likes to create, customize, likes a quality product, do not like being forced to use iTunes, and have some basic technical skills then this is the tablet for you. Me personally, not having Flash on the iPad just killed it for me because 90% of the Websites out there that most people look at use Flash and most of my time spent on this tablet will be surfing the Web... I don't care if the price is better, it still has to do the basic functionalities for me such as being able to view Websites... You pay for what you get.... Way to go Steve Jobs...I would recommend this to a friend
