    I wish there was an explanation for this. I mostly use my xoom to view PDF documents. Compared to my ipad, the xoom is HORRIBLE for doing this. How is it that this dual core beast can't scroll a PDF document smoothly? I've tried every PDF view there is on the market, and I always get the same resutls. Meanwhile, the Ipad 1 scrolls beautifully. I sure wish they could fix that.

    What do you mean by 'scrolling'? I'm not trying to go all Bill Clinton on you, but do you mean from page to page or within the same page?

    Web page scrolling is also juddery . Although I'm hoping 3.1 will fix this?

    I'm using ezPDF reader available on the Market for 99 cents. It doesn't do traditional "scrolling." Page navigation is accomplished using a "page turning" effect similar to what can be experienced in the B&N Nook app and the Google Books app. Doesn't feel laggy at all.

    I read pdf books all the time on my xoom using ezpdf reader, zero issues here. Smooth as butter.
