    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.

    The browser is very fast.

    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.

    Check out the AccuWeather Tablet app! Sweet!

    I know, I can't wait! The few tablet optimized ones are very nice, as are the native Apps.

    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.

    Flixster runs in tablet mode. Nice!

    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.

    They must of spent a lot of time on the music app, got tired of hearing about iPhone all the time.

    It really kicks a$$ now!

    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.

    • 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.
