All I hear about Xoom (or any competing tablet) is specs - not user experience.
Co-worker keeps buying tablets, showing them to me, and the first words out of his mouth each time is an apology for its poor performance.

Yes there’s a strong Apple fan club on FR. It’s that cool. It just works - even with lesser specs.

The TechCrunch guy bought a Xoom at Costco and used it for a week, and is an Android fan. Watch the video review. He is NOT happy with it.

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:

Here is Ars Technica’s Review of the Xoom...

I can’t post the article on FR, because it’s Conde Nast and prohibited. But they have a lot of negatives to say!
