I got to agree with you here on FR, there has been few if any user experiences posted about Android devices.

So I’ll post mine:
I pre-ordered a NotionInk Adam about 3 hours after they started pre-orders to their forum members.
I have now received three delays in ship dates.
I cancelled my order yesterday because I’m looking at the new tablets coming out in early April and will wait for the price war to heat up...

Here’s the most comprehensive online English-language forum for real hands on reviews of ALL android tablets:

and another for the Xoom:

I'll see if I can get my wife to write something up. She likes hers.  I'd like to see more side-by-side comparisons of the functions of the tablets that people actually use as opposed to what they think is cool, or think they'll use.

From what I've seen so far, the Android tablets serve a specific niche of the market. Wife uses hers primarily as a book reader with some light web/email usage. I think the smaller form factor makes them a better choice for me (I use a Nook Color), as i want something that is much more the size of a paperback, than a full-sized tablet.

I don't have anything against the iPad specifically, and would probably enjoy using one if I had it, but it's not something I need at the moment. I'm just glad that there is plenty of choice out there. Having Apple and Android competing head-to-head in the marketplace is great for those of us who just dig the tech. I'm sure that like everything else, some with prefer one, and some will prefer the other.

My wife bought a Cruze Micro Tablet with Android 2.0. It was awful. It kept going back to the homepage and would not play an Mpeg4 video that I processed five different ways. Sent it back to QVC and is getting a full refund.

Saw that Toshiba has a tablet coming out. Curious about that one as I have nothing but nice things to say about my Toshiba laptops.
