The SD card doesn't work due to OS limitations, the OS has stability issues, poor browser rendering, weak email client, 4G is missing, no Flash.

Yes, I compared that to the Ipad 2 which has no SD card, a slower OS, and no 4G. That is why I added the words for now.

I am really hoping for some real competition to the Ipad, just to bring prices down, but I think by the time Xoom and others fully enable their features, Ipad3 will be out with a superior OS and maybe an SD slot.

Another reason I am going with the Ipad2 is it has a full year of public testing without any real complaints. In other words, I have confidence it will perform as expected without any glitches.

As for rushed to market - it does look like they went out of their way to have the Xoom on the street before the Ipad2 was released.

For now it's inferior, especially to people who considered 4G, SD card and Flash as desirable features. For them, it will likely be superior in the future. What do you mean about slower OS?
