Considering a xoom, still a good option?

I think you'll be Happy...got one three weeks ago for 300.00 and it was the best
300.00 I spent in a while...the main reason for me buying the Xoom was the
great DEV support that comes with it...hope you enjoy yours

I agree, good choice. I bought the WiFi Version the day it came out and have no need for another Tablet. ICS gave my Xoom new life. It's fast and butter smooth. I am running stock and it good enough for me. If you want to delete Files off your SDCard get SDCardXD ($1.49), definitely worth the price.

Just got my Xoom!
I was looking to upgrade my iPad...and was actually thinking of going with either an Asus or Acer android tablet. It came down to getting an Acer as they were getting ICS in a few weeks...I was surprised in my continuing research that the Xoom already had ICS! I looked on Craigslist and scored one there for a VERY good price. I am very happy with it. A bit different and more technical than the iPad, but so far its been a great experience. I love the widgets and everything seems to be working well. So far the only thing I'm still trying to figure out is when to actually use my MicroSD card. Xoom has 32gb and has not run out of space...so I have a 32gb SD card sitting in the slot without any content!

The best thing is to load it up with media files--any music, video, pictures--that you aren't streaming. Also, you can point any backups to the microsd card to keep them safe and save space in your internal storage. 32G seems like a lot, but it will fill up fast if you do a lot of high def gaming, etc.

Have fun!

As long as it is NOT the 3G/4G version, go for it. Adopters of this version has been dicked around from the start.

Thanks! I am having fun downloading a bunch of apps from the multiple markets. I check first on Google's market...then go to the others. Is there a way to install/put the apps on the SD card? I've heard of something called Apps2SD - but from what I'm reading, I don't think that's the right app and probably doesn't work in ICS. I did download some gameloft game yesterday, and that thing is HUGE.

I don't think any/many apps are made to run from sdcard on a tablet. It's because it natively has so much more space and differences in architecture (so I gather...I'm no expert).

well guys, its gonna be a bit before i get my tablet now. i ordered one from walmart because i felt more comfortable in thinking i would get a US device with the ability to return it no problem if something was wrong with it. instead, wally sends me one that boots up for singapore and has a foreign charger with adapter...on top of the fact it looks like someone grabbed the display model and threw it in the box. needless to say im pretty bummed and im gonna return this thing, so i have to try and hunt down a legit device
