I think you missed my point here. I AM willing to live with the temporary limitations. I DID read the reviews. But I think the early adopters have a right to be compensated for their trouble while the thing gets the wrinkles worked out. I work in IT support. I'm exposed every day to unkept promises and no accountability. I think Google, Moto and VZ are entitled to a premium price for a premium product and premium service. But until they deliver that with the Xoom I propose we deserve compensation as consumers. I know it's a new idea to expect things to actually be fully functional at the time they hit the shelves. When was the last time you bought a car where you had to take it back to the dealer at some unknown future date for an upgrade. And meanwhile the radio doesn't work? It's about managing expectations. Or in this case it's about having our expectations managed for us.
