I agree with Ballyman. I've had mine since it was released in April and I've convinced a few friends to get some too. I haven't had any complaints.
I've a couple of extra thoughts. The Xoom 2 has been rumoured to be released soon. (http://gadgetbox.msnbc.msn.com/_news...izon-next-week
I'd say the current Xoom has been reduced in price because of this. So if you can get it, don't hang around. It's probably not going to get cheaper and the Xoom 2 is probably going to be the normal price. This is all speculation on my part.
The only major advantage I can see is that the Xoom 2 will be skinnier. That doesn't bother me in the slightest though. It may be faster and have more memory. Both of those are nice of course but the current model is fast and has 1GB memory and 32Gb storage. So I'm happy with mine for a while. I may look at the Xoom 3 though if that is ever released. If Motorola keep updating it at this pace that'll be around May next year.
