Could they not have chosen a different material for the backing?
I know Motorola wanted to go for grip, and I assume they didn't want to go for plastic.. because apparently plastic=cheap, which isn't always entirely the truth.
In all honestly I cannot properly tell what the back of the Xoom is made out of.. it looks like rubber or something.. however, getting back to point. Judging from screen shots the back on the Xoom looks very irritating:
Before you go on to say "Of course it looks like that! A whole bunch of people were playing with the device!", regardless, it looks very prone to grease, fingerprints, etc etc. I don't understand why they couldn't have gone with a colored aluminum body (which is what it somewhat resembles already)
with a teflon coating exactly like the Nexus One, which is almost entirely resistant to fingerprints (or is it because the Xoom is black they are so visible?).. it looks like one of those laptops where you have to clean off the top all the time because it becomes infested with hundreds of fingerprints and other grime that quickly become a nuisance.
Does anyone know what the Xoom's body is composed of?
