Okay, so I've had my Xoom since Tuesday 3/1. Here's my initial impressions.
It's heavy/well built. I wasn't sure what to expect as have never even held an iPad etc. I do have an Acer Netbook ... it's heaver but not as solid.
One thing that struck me was the glare/reflection from the screen. It's not evident on most of the video reviews and ad images of course. It's a bit annoying, but not a major problem.
I'm totally impressed with the browser and the web browsing experience!
Battery life seems great, but I really haven't pushed it very hard.
I love the ebook capabilities. Nice GoogleBook Browser. Aldiko works wonderfully (full screen) and the QuickOffice and Aldiko display PDFs wonderfully. This is the first portable Reader/Tablet that I'd even bother reading PDFs on (other than full computer or netbook)
Sound is great if a bit low volume-wise. I'm sure headphones/earpods are great (have not tried them yet)
I don't like that it has a special charger and will not charge from the USB...but can live with it.
I love that it has wi-fi hotspot built in!! Yea! Not sure if it will connect to the corporate VPN, but will try that at some point.
I do wish it had flash already, but I'm confident it will be available in the next month or so.
I'd definitely give it a 9/10 (and no rotten apples about it).
