is selling like garbage..there already talking about dropping the price... ipad= ...android/windows tablet makers just dont get it...although this asus, has..well HAD potential..but what up w/ no 3g connectivity? and better yet, win7 touch is kinda well, still lacking...play on a win7 touch screen and youll get what i mean (even after spending all the time making buttons larger and garbage like that)..

Selling like garbage doesn't mean it is garbage.  My wife has ipad and I have the xoom and now she only wants to use mine.  Scrollable widgets are badass.  A real tabbed browser is nice too.  Xoom is awesome.

It would be a new thing to ipad.  Honeycomb OS will get support.  Not just on the Xoom but other devices to come.

Loving my Xoom.  I can post to Covers with it, which I can't with my android phone (Evo).

Posting from my playbook.....i had a $250 Future Shop (similar to best buy) gift card from the pokerstars loyalty program and i had nothing to buy so i bought a playbook.  Its alright but the apps are pretty lacking at the moment.....supposed to support android apps at some point in the near future but i find it sitting around unused for days at a time.

Do you have a Blackberry,  My understanding is if you use Blackberry then it's pretty good, otherwise it just doesn't make sense.

RIM is more niche than any other brand, there time IS running out...even the business world is moving on

apple will not only continue to be relevant be a market leader..android is not the future, merely a stop gap (and its being fragmented, not good for long term viability)...I think chrome OS will have a better longer lasting more useful future..
