    Spec and price Xoom is looking like a great tool. If your watching the Xoom feeds people are worried about price but as your post shows specs would warrant a higher price but still cheaper than the iPad.

    A barometer? Why would you need a barometer in a tablet?

    One category you forgot to list… WiFi only. iPad wins and I hate Apple. But, what I hate more is all these damn Android tablets tied to F***ING CARRIERS FIRST. You want to sell a lot of tablets? WIFI FIRST!!!

    A barometer would allow it to be used as a flight instrument on your knee as most pilots use kneeboards with charts. And you could tie the barometer in with topo maps and gps for navigation.

      except that in an aeroplane it is pressurised so the true altitude is in correct!

        Most GA aircraft are not pressurized. This is a feature I am really looking forward to having in the cockpit of my plane!!

    I don’t understand this insistence that some people have for Wi-fi. I’m out of range of a free wi-fi signal at least half of my day during the week, and frequently on the weekends.

    If I’m at a meeting and I want to access a google doc or on the road and want the kids to watch a video in the backseat, do I really want to be hunting around for a Wi-fi signal?

    That makes no sense.

      @David: I can see why you’d want 3G, if you take the tablet out on the road a lot, but a lot of people (like me) would mostly only use a tablet at home (esp. a larger 10″ tablet), where it only needs wifi. If I occasionally took the tablet out (on a car trip, say), then I’d use my phone’s wifi hotspot, or tether it via USB or BT.

      Other reason is, a lot of people don’t want to pay for another data plan. Those things add up. For me, I’d rather piggyback off my phone’s data plan, on the rare-ish occasion that I needed it (especially as tethering/hotspots don’t cost any extra, here in AU).

    Don’t get me wrong, I plan on purchasing one of these Honeycomb tablets, but kind of an unfair comparison, the iPad has been out almost a year, and the Xoom doesn’t even have a solid release date.. it should be superior spec for spec. The Xoom will likely compete with the iPad2 this summer.

    I am thinking of picking up Nook Color and rooting it instead. for $250 you get half the specs, but it’s a better bargain, methinks.
