    I will be buying the Motorola xoom very soon. The ipad 2 still ain't nothing compared to the xoom and my hatred for apple will never get me buying anything of their iwhatevers. The new smart cover for the ipad2 does sound really good and an interesting concept. Does anyone know if you can find something like this for the xoom?

    have not seen anything as of yet, but give it time for these 3rd party cats to begin whipping up some things... especially once the wifi only model comes out...:)

    and welcome to xoomer land..

    Hatred, really? Shouldn't we reserve this kind of emotion for criminals /politicians? Despite the borderline hypocrisy of your post, I do agree that something like this would be quite cool.

    The Xoom does not have a metal to magnet into on the top, though it does on the bottom. Good thought though.

    So it is October now, has nobody developed a case like this one yet?

    I own an iPad and a Xoom and it simply isn't true that the iPad is "nothing compared to the Xoom", although if I had to choose, I would (narrowly) choose the Xoom.

    You won't see something as good as the smart cover because the Xoom doesn't have the magnets built into it like the iPad. This is one example amongst many of how carefully Apple thinks these things through, unlike Motorola.
