    Hi,

    i been lurking for sometime and finally decided to register. its a pretty cool community here for XOOM users.

    I have a problem and would like to get some feedback and diagnostics.

    I picked up my 3G XOOM from verizon early April. I been charging it with a standard dock. I usually hold my XOOM near the base of the charging Area and the "white" dot on the touch screen that aligns the charging base of the unit.

    Recently, there are alot of creaking and cracking nose from that area. The rest of the screen does not exhibit this symptom.


    But I guess my question is, how are these screens put on to the unit? is it supposedly fused by glue? or screws? And has anyone else had these screen creaking issues.

    Also, I expected the glass to be smooth, flat and conforming edge to edge. But I realized the glass is not uniform, its wavey in certain areas, like its a dip in certain areas, its not a noticeable dip, but if you hold your xoom and see the reflection, the glass is not flat and uniform all the way.

    and so if this is a hardware issue, perhaps I need to use the warranty on this via VZE.

    in anycase, thanks for the help guys!

    Not sure but I think the screens are glued down...I'm saying this because in some tear downs people use heat guns to remove the screens...

    Anyways, I would call Motorola or vrw and clame a warranty replacement
