    The bad:

    Poorly launched by Viewsonic? Check!

    Got to be modded for full function? Check!

    Viewing angle of about 5 degrees? Check!

    Issues with hidef video? Check! (This impacts all Tegra 2- no optimized drivers from Nvidia yet)

    The good:

    Super easy to mod? Check!

    USB Host? Check!

    $380 or less? Check!

    Plays Flash and other heavy demand apps like PSX, smoothly? Check!

    Great battery life? Check!


    Though the Xoom is about one big update away (Flash & microsd) from being a sweet device, the cost difference and USB host issue make me appreciate the G even more.

    Long live the G! I think I listen to Tenacious D too much......

    I was this close of caving in and buying the 3g/4g Xoom. I borrowed my sister's Xoom for the weekend to "set it up" for her. haha. I love the screen on the Xoom and it's super smooth but reality struck when I realized that I don't want to spend that much money ($800+) for an internet, video and gaming device.

    I'm gonna wait it out but for now, the gtablet is still my precious.
