First Look: Motorola Xoom Tablet Computer

Wired: First Look – Motorola Xoom Tablet Computer

Xoom uses the latest, tablet-centric version of Google’s Android’s mobile operating system, which has a few bugs and idiosyncracies, this reviewer says. But the screen is mostly great.

“As Sly Stone said, the nicer the nice, the higher the price.

The question is, is the more expensive Xoom nicer than the comparable iPad?

The experience is markedly different, that’s for sure. Anyone familiar with Apple’s market-leading tablet — and the Xoom invites the comparison — will face a few moments of disorientation when picking up the Xoom for the first time. A few details are unsettling to iPad users, such as the location of the power button (on the rear of the device), the lack of front-facing command buttons, and the unfamiliar location of the volume rocker.”
