I for one have been holding out since the I pad came out, waiting for an official android tablet. Yes, i'm anti-apple... I thought the day would never come when the xoom would be in stores. Now it's in my hands and even though it's lacking a few options and upgrades at release , i'm happy! I'm patient because the rest will come. I'd rather have what I got now than to wait any longer... This tablet is a foundation and everything will build on it. You can't have the app first. The I pad had few apps at release(remember). Yes it's pricey but is also a luxury to have it now. Motorola has called Apples bluff and I believe they will do what it takes to avoid any embarasment.
