After having one for about a week, I wouldn't exactly rave about it. In fact in my case it is going back to Costco. There is much to like about tablets and in this regard Xoom shares many of the benefits. But not being able to insert my SD cards until an upgrade, no way to attach external USB storage, no way to replace the battery, no stand to hold it up, a 'fat' shiny profile that is a fingerprint magnet, a mini HDMI connetor instead of standard, the need to re-encode have my video files before they will play, and with no support to play .mkv files, those were the main deal breakers. Why they needed to make it so shiny so that it slides off every surface you try to place it on is beyond me. Then bevel the edges to make it even harder to keep on your lap, why not? What are the pros? Well it's easy to tether to your BT phone, the wireless N makes the WiFI fast,the screen looks good for the few standard def .avi files you can play on it after you wipe all your fingerprints off the hyper glossy surface, and battery life seems good. But the worst of all I have saved for last: the processor is anemic, and as a result as soon as you have more than one thing going on, everything stalls and lags, forcing you to keep punching icons and arrows over and over until they finally respond. I ended up getting a Q550 Slate instead, and while it addresses the weaknesses outlined above, it seems to do so at the expense of battery life, so it may also go back along with the Xoom and I'll revert to a 4.3" phone for my portable needs in the field where I need light weight and long battery life.
