Default What do you like so far?

Please all the "special" things you like so far about the Xoom.

I like the way you can choose different accounts in the Market.

The multi-touch makes Fruit Ninja better.

I like how you don't want to keep flipping it from landscape to portrait. Landscape is just right!

Speaking of multi touch... I have two Google accounts set up for mail, and I have two widgets (one for each). I thought the multi-touch was supposed to let you scroll through both independently, but I am not having any success here...

Love the way they designed around landscape. Really fits in hands nicely. The way they tapered back gives great feel. I primarily used iPad in portrait mode but was never as comfortable as Xoom.

Me too. I love that they separated Tablet Apps, even though there aren't many there yet.

I did. I put the widget on the main home page and it showed "Null". I restarted and the widget got stuck at "Loading". I sent email to Accuweather and they responded that they are escalating the matter.

If anyone got it to work let me know how you did it please.

Other than that, no complaints here. I'm loving it.

It's easier to say what I don't like...every time you go back in the browser, you have to re-scroll back down to where you were before,the bezel edge around the screen is a little sharp and the charger plug is not a 90 degree connector. Well that's it for now. Love this anti-ipad thing!! It's not complete yet but rather have it now than later..

I love the browser wheel menus you get to control the browser when you enable google labs. Very thumb friendly no hand moving.

I have found that if I go to the site go to the bottom of the page and select full version and then save the bookmark every thing works fine.

I like the fact that the system tray has been moved to the bottom. I think this is not discussed enough. It a makes navigating the tab MUCH easier.

Default The little things you love about your XOOM

  • I personally love the fact that there is a tab button on the keyboard
  • I love the 1% battery increments(Moto Droid and Droid X never had them )
  • I love the copy and paste function, works flawlessly.
  • I love how fast and easy it is to add widgets to your screens
  • I love how it shows you exactly where your widget or app is going to go

I'm hard pressed to find something I DON'T love about the Xoom! But not yet celebrated in this post is it's ability to capture really great photos on the fly. People can debate photo quality from a non-photography specific device all day (and they do), but the experience of taking a quick few shots with the Xoom is undeniably satisfying.
Of course it might have something to do with the dual core 1 GHz (or 1.5 ) processor & a Gig of RAM!

I too like pretty much everything, there are two that I don't. 1) compaired to the iPad when turned on the screen shows way too much finger prints. 2) the charging cord, it kind of scares me, looks a little week.

Thant about it, great product!!!

I like that Motorola did such a good job of marketing that they were able to sway folks into looking at other products than the latest iThing. Maybe they'll actually have finished product to satisfy people who don't have enough money to be so impulsive or the respect for the little bit that they do have to actually look at what they are paying for.
I don't have an ounce of sympathy for anyone who dropped this kind of money on the Xoom and was not prepared for it not to end up with all of the things they heard it would have in a reasonable space of time. Motorola is not excused from their BS, but your hands aren't clean either and I hope that you have to pay someone to take it. If I didn't have the option to put everyone who /ragequits the Xoom on /ignore, I'd buy it from you just so you'd quit whining but you'll probably do it again with the next unfinished device that comes out.

And I hate whiney whores addicted to attention like it's crack.
Every single one of your complaints is totally reasonable and valid, but instead of posting them in your own thread, you chose to contaminate this one with your cantankerous contempt. You hijacked a thread that was about the XOOM and made it about YOU.
You come off like an overpaid spoiled yuppie wannabe, thereby trivializing what are legitimate complaints simply because you lack the maturity to present them without trying your hardest to piss on everyone else's parade.
Steve Jobs created a tablet especially for people like you.

Lol! I guess I pegged the spoiled yuppie wannabe just right. (I have the Xoom, you imbecile.)
If you want to list your dissatisfactions with the Xoom, legitimate or not, you don't do it in a thread entitled "What do you like so far?". If you do, that makes you either a troll or an attention whore.

...And I LOVE pissing off trolls and attention whores. ;-)

I like in the browser when you scroll down the web page a little and the address bar disappears that a little arrow shows up on the browser tab that brings the address bar back.

I like that my Xoom does everything I want it to do! of course there is no app to remote start my car but I have a working app for everything I need! There are alot of people that think otherwise. They're like the fools that expect the government to feed and take care of them.
