    Does anyone have experience with the silver-backed version of the Xoom compared with the matte black one? I'm in the UK, and it seems that the silver one is the only one available at the moment.

    Does anyone know if the black version will be coming to Europe, or should I dive in and pick up a silver one? Which backing would be the better version to have? I've read that the silver doesn't pick up fingerprints so much, for example...

    I thought the 3g one was black only and the wifi one was silver only

    I was looking at the xoom tonight at Best Buy; the Verizon-branded 3G model has a full matte-black, soft-touch back while the wifi-only model has the silver back.

    Differences like this bug me because I want the soft touch materials but don't want or need the 3G/4G radio. It seems like the backing is easily removable (according to youtube disassembly videos) but spare parts don't seem readily available for purchase.

    The Verizon branded one is certainly matte black, but here in the UK both the 3G and Wi-Fi only versions are silver.

    Does anyone have a black one in the UK? If not, I'll settle for silver...
