    Hi all, a friend of mine is going to the States and will be buying a Xoom wi-fi only for me. We live in Belgium, is anyone aware of any locks or issues that could bring ? I read on one of the posts of an issue downloading some apps from the market due to the IP adress not being recognised as a US one. Thanks for any help.

    Gyxson.

    yes thats one issue with the market. you may not be able to see certain apps, etc.

    the tablet is not locked to anything since it has no CDMA/GSM/GPRS radio in it.

    Hi, thanks a lot for the confirmation, not really worried if I cant see all the apps, as soon as it is not locked it will do me. Up for some savings then !!

    Thanks again,
    Gyxson.
