I, like many others, have my panties in a bunch about all of this.
I'm in the Chicago suburbs, just received my number, and it's not showing in the system.
However, everyone who is saying that woot! is a Bindle of Carrots (had to try that!) needs to calm down. They didn't guarantee any fancy/fast shipping schedule, and you only paid 5 lousy dollars to ship the package.
I am elated to have seen this deal. I get the emails because I bought a shirt years and years ago, and I delete or don't read most. I have wanted the xoom since I first heard the tech specs and this is a pretty good deal.
I recently had the chance to check out an original IPad and I have an ipod touch, and as much as I like them, my geeky roots yearn for the freedom that android will bring.
I can't believe I will soon hold in my hand THE DEFINITIVE android tablet. Don't even mention that turdy asus impostor to me. I haven't met it in person, but build quality means a lot to me. Especially when you are competing with Apple (they make quality hardware in their chinese factory prisons...)
Of course, a year from now, it will be obsolete, but I will treasure the few months of owning a piece of top-o-the line tech.
Anyway, thanks woot! for the sweet deal. You have a happy (and might antsy) customer here.
Just remember that saying, "distance makes the heart grow fonder" or something like that.
