"Great Performance, Intuitive, Multitaskers Dreams"4.5 starson by macroof
Pros: light, fast, easier to hold than an ipad, home screen layout, widgets, battery life, sound quality, video quality, usb, and hdmi. It is a great Tablet, I couldn't be more pleased.
Cons: Have to wait on flash, memory card, and honeycomb specific apps, but it is worth it to have the chance to use honeycomb - it isn't often you get use something new and different. There is no native messaging app with honeycomb as there was with Froyo.
Summary: My wife has a samsung galaxy tab and my son has an ipad so I am quite familiar with tablets, i like both of those tablets for different reasons and considered a lot of different tablets before i pulled the trigger and bought a xoom. bottom line for me is the multitasking and video. if the ipad could really multitask and not just stop and start apps i would feel differently due to app availability. But the only thing you can truly multi-task on the ipad is music. you can't watch a movie and check your email without having the movie app log you out. I guess i have adult onset ADD, but i have to do two things at one time. And on the ipad i feel like i am in the stone ages of computing. I like the tablet, but i am frustrated using it. Honeycomb is not frustrating it is fun, zippy built the way you work. Now iOS 5 may be revolutionary in terms of multitasking, but i doubt it it just doesn't seem like apple is headed in the same direction android is headed. Time will tell. I hope that the competition remains stiff between the two so that we continue to get great innovation.
