    Wish Verizon would not have branded the front.

    wirefly wants to entice you all to get the gadget thru them. this unboxing video is a trojan horse... :)

    and these unboxing videos are just waaaay too dramatic. back in the day we only wanted to see the phone/gadget and what accessories it had. now we care about how to open the box and how the box looks? :rolleyes:

    I actually like their unboxing/review videos. They did a fantastic Inspire video review, with bunches of benchmarks run.

    Doesn't mean I would buy from them, but they do provide a free service to us with this video. About time we saw an outfit actually get one outside CES and MWC.

    Is it my imagination - or did his pulling off of the backside plastic take off the FCC sticker? Around 2:35 - 2:45

    Whatever it was it looked to be on the outside of the plastic...I could be wrong.

    Regardless, man i get shivers just watching...that Xoom is cherry.:) I want mine :D

    And did he say the HDMI port was a mini HDMI? Its not a standard size HDMI?

    you can just see it. Its not full size. I already have an hdmi cable anyway. You can get a mini-hdmi cable from monoprice for a couple of bucks

    Another thing he said that concerns me is that he said you can use the mini-USB port to get a "trickle charge" but I could have sworn the Xoom manual states to only use the USB port for data and NOT to charge thru it.

    This is what is says in the Xoom manual found online:


    Caution: Use only the charger that came with your
    tablet when charging your tablet. Do NOT attempt to
    connect a charger to the USB port. The USB port is
    used for data transfer only, NOT for charging.

    I would NOT listen to this guy regarding the USB port and trickle charging!

    Did anyone else see the ability to skip the activation process and use just wifi at the end?????? Ahhhhhh yeeeeeee!

    Oh and this guy was wrong about a few things, first being the "sim card" that is the microSD port and second about the trickle charge the micro USB port will be for data transfer only.

    I though it was a micro HDMI? Can we confirm if its micro or mini?

    He needs to tho or he's going to cause someone fry their Xoom potentially :D

    I wish we could use the USB port for trickle charging though as I have probably ten of them :D

    Where is the SD card slot? I thought it's supposed to have one though it is not enabled yet... Which ok, cool, we'll wait some time to get that SW update, but where exactly is the MicroSD slot?

    The trick is going to be getting it out of the store without activating it.;)

    its micro hdmi, not the mini. The mini is the size up from this, and is a longer and flatter port.

    seen in detail on this thread

    It looked like a micro HDMI and it would make sense for it to be such. He also called the MicroUSB a mini, so it could just be a mistake/mix-up.

    alot of his facts were wrong. either way the video was nice, doesn't entice me to buy from them, makes me want to buy it and get it now (ie thursday at VZ or best buy).
