  • pros
  • + Well built and finished
  • + Some elements implemented differently - power button placement, for example
  • + Steady performance - didn't slow down even with background apps
  • + Not locked to any cellular network
  • + A web browser that can actually multi-task properly
  • cons
  • - Pricey
  • - Extremely glossy - accumulates too many fingerprints
  • - The display of white colour isn't very clean; more off-white than white
  • - Battery disappoints - discharges quicker than the iPad 2 under same usage
  • - Bulky charger- more like the one we get with a netbook
  • - Not enough tablet-optimized apps on Android

Verdict

By
There's a lot to like about the Xoom, especially after tweaks and updates collectively make it a much better device. The biggest problem isn't the Xoom, but the dearth of tablet-friendly apps - it seems only iOS is hot when it comes to this class of device form factor. The Xoom is a good tablet, but really, tablets are little more than the sum of apps that run on them, and at the moment, the iPad has a much better ecosystem.
