Default Can't believe this forum isn't busier than it is!

With the success and popularity of the original xoom and how close we are to having the xoom 2 released here in the states, where is everybody? lol

I dunno about you guys but I'm looking forward to the media edition coming out so I can compare it with the SGT 7 plus. The smaller xoom 2 has me really excited

Anyway, I got safety training (mold awareness ugh...) and all kinds of boring stuff to do today so I'll be keeping myself awake on these forums the rest of the day

I'm trying to make a decision. I have a galaxy tab 10.1 and will be taking it back to store for exchange as screen its faulty. Do I replace it with the xoom 2 or a credit note and wait for something in the new year. As you are saying you have time on your hands I thought id ask your opinion. I'm in the uk by the way and the xoom 2 is already out.

Sorry about that. Of course the moment I say not busy all hell breaks loose!

I'm not really sure which one I'd go with. I really want to check both out since I'm in the market for something a little smaller than 10 inches. I'm really interested in the SGT 7 plus and the zoom 2 media edition. I just have to see which screen I like better and what size feels better to me really. You should check both out at a carphone warehouse and let us yanks know!

Well, i took the sgt back to pc world and as they still haven't got the xoom 2 in yet they gave me store credit. Im now thinking to wait for the asus prime...I'm thinking the xoom won't feel like any kind of upgrade from the galaxy tab. I will pop into carphone warehouse this weekend and have a look at both xoom 2 editions.

I read a UK review that said the microSD slot was blocked (disabled). Is that true and are we not going to have the option to add memory on the US version or will it be blocked as well? This so far seems like a step backwards. I have been holding off for the Xoom 2 but am not very happy with what I have read so far.
