    Hello all, I am new to these here forums and thought I would drop by because I am getting ready to buy a Xoom (a month or two used from someone) and I was wondering if I could get some reviews and what not for this before I actually get it. Plus, any tips or tricks? I also have a couple questions as well.
    1. How is the virtual keyboard? Would it be wise to have a USB/BT one ready? Would this be an alright keyboard to use?

    Amazon.com: Black Mini Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard for iPhone 4, iPad, iPaq, PDA, MAC, OS, PS3, Droid, Smart Phones, PC, Computers. Bonus LCD cleaner and USB Cable Included: Computer & Accessories

    2. If I use a keyboard, would the portfolio case work work as a stand, if not, where could I find a cheap stand?

    3. If you were a itunes user and wanted movies/music on the Xoom, what is a good way to do that?

    4. How is reading on the Xoom?



    I think that is all for now, but thank you you guys for answering in advance. I look forward to being a Xoom owner!

    Hello. The xoom is still a great device. a PURE GOOGLE EXPERIENCE. I have enjoyed it since feb and use it everyday.

    That said, there are already many discussions on this forum that already answer your questions. I suggest you smoke over the tips and support sub forums and read up on what others have to say.

    to get you started:

    1. the keyboard is great! there are 3rd party software keyboards, swype and swiftkey, that really up the ante` on the UI keyboard.

    with the latest updates (3.2) you can use a BT keyboard as well as a USB wired keyboard if you so desire.

    There are a couple threads in the accessory section on keyboards. go here for starters:

    http://androidforums.com/xoom-accessories/375450-best-keyboard-case-dock-xoom.html

    http://androidforums.com/xoom-accessories/309774-motorola-bluetooth-keyboard-discussion.html

    still search for more threads as well.

    2. the oem portfolio case folds out to make a "stand" for the xoom. search "stand" in the accessory section for more info and/or "portfolio".

    3. http://androidforums.com/xoom-support-troubleshooting/279253-xoom-itunes-question.html

    http://androidforums.com/xoom-support-troubleshooting/288644-how-you-watching-movies.html

    http://androidforums.com/motorola-xoom/333047-google-music.html

    4. http://androidforums.com/motorola-xoom/303182-reading-books.html

    again these threads are just off a quick search. if you want to read up on other discussions, just type in what you are looking for in the search window. Lots of information on the xoom to get you set before you acquire one.

    IF you need any help, by all means send me a PM and I will be happy to help.
