XOOM or Atrix?

  1. XOOM w/Bionic or DX rooted free tethering

    90.9%
  2. Atrix w/monitor and keyboard dock

    9.1%

    Atrix? W/separate monitor/keyboard/dock?! Why when you can get a XOOM tablet w/wifi only and a Bionic that will most likely be rooted w/free tethering ?


    Just saying.

    What do you think?:cool:

    Are you just questioning the docking peripherals of the Atrix? I personally don't seem them necessary at all.

    I still am getting the Atrix because I have AT&T and it's one hell of a phone.

    What I plan on doing is purchasing the Atrix and the WiFi-only Xoom tablet. This combination will be downright lethal.

    Forgot to mention...

    Atrix = 1 device
    XOOM w/DX or Bionic = 2 devices..... more money, but wider range of multitasking

    Its definitely going to be a trade off.

    Guess I left out another question to keep in mind;what is the reliability of the provider in the area? I work for AT&T in socal and Verizon is by far greater here.

    Lawl, I live in socal too..

    Verizon by far has better coverage down here xD. But honestly, AT&T's isn't horrible. Just spotty at times.

    I just can't wait for the Atrix and Xoom at this point. I think this is also cooler than one device just because the Xoom has such a nice form factor and I think it will be quite a joy to browse the internet and other such table-oriented activities on it.

    Any idea if the WiFi-only version of the Xoom is going to be released after the Verizon version?
