I thought it was still the rainy season (at least it was like that when I grew up in MI.)

The XOOM works fine in direct sunlight, there's just too much glare to keep it from being one of the most annoying experiences ever. It feels hot sometimes the way the Droid 1 would, but that's probably because it's black.
