First dual-core tablet to ship in volume? HAHHAHAA.. I bet iFans really believe that.

Thinness is nothing new, they are trying to match the Kindle, which is 8.5mm. You know the Kindle was iPad's original target.

Problem is Kindle beats this as a reader, in price, performance, book store and usability.

What gains does the iPad2 have on the Xoom when it comes to features and specs? None. Pricing is still an issue, I'll give you that and Motorola needs to do something quick. . .but spec for spec, the Xoom is a clear winner here.

The fact that Xoom and its fan club are reduced to yelling about specs (like how many graphic cores it has and how many gigaflops per femtosecond it churns through) show shows that neither Motorola nor they have any idea why customers (as opposed to the dwindling sliver of tech-spergs) bought 15 million iPads last year.

No, but you can add another 3rd to the Xoom's performance since it has a third more pixels.

That's more a limitation of the eInk display. Also I think it's like a quarter of a second on the Kindle 3. My 3 feels like it's loading pages a lot faster than my 2 did.

I'm mildly surprised that they were able to match iPad2 in price. I wonder how much money they're losing on every one sold? Still, the entry level device is cheaper on the Apple side, and Apple's in the odd place where it has more options at more price levels than one of its main competitors.

Plus, you know, you don't have to mail your iPad back to Apple for two weeks to have them install the advertised functionality you paid for.

guess they really dont want a cheaper 8gb/16gb version so people can put the sd slot to good use

which kinda defeats the whole point of having a sd card slot and use it with your own cheap (terrible and slow) sd cards to expand the capacity

The sd slot on the Xoom is a retarded attempt to have one more useless feature when compared to the iPad 2.

granted but why arent they attempting

i mean id at least expect them to try writing some sort of obj-c wrapper for adobe air/flex so they could run a ported version of photoshop and have it be some ungodly slow monstrosity that doesn't loving work
