Sure, you've already spent hours salivating over the Motorola XOOM, checked out some apps built for Android 3.0, and even played with the Honeycomb emulator, but obviously, the one thing you've really been longing for is the XOOM's user guide.

Thanks to Droid Life, you can now sift through that clumsy collection of instructions you never would have read otherwise. Nonetheless, go ahead and download the guide if you so desire; we didn't discover anything previously unknown during our preliminary reading, but who knows - something new and exciting could be contained within!

    First, I have admit, iPad and XOOM, both of them are decent tablet, but which one I should buy? I heard that the Xoom is so expensive, and if that, I think I will choose iPad and bought an iPad video converter from ANEESOFT.

      iPad starts at $499, while the WiFi-only XOOM will cost $600 when it launches. You have to keep in mind that you can't really compare the two, though, as the $499 iPad only has 16GB of storage - the $600 XOOM has twice as much (32GB). So really, you're comparing the $600 32GB iPad with the $600 XOOM, and I don't see why anyone wouldn't choose Motorola's offering. It'll be much faster, will feature superior software, and will include many more features.
      On the 3G front, you're looking at a price difference of $70 - 32GB 3G iPad costs $729; 3G XOOM costs $800. Both price tags are way too high in my opinion, but I'd still recommend coughing up the extra $70 (or simply waiting a few months until cheaper Honeycomb tablets come out / the XOOM's price drops). Hope that helps!

        the Xoom's memory and or WiFi isn't the only thing to consider when talking about price.

        you have to also consider that the Xoom will USB, HDMI, SD, 2 Cameras, 2 CPU cores and 1080p video so that makes it well worth the extra $70

        also, I believe that the ipad 2 WILL have a higher entry cost than the ipad so Android and Apple devices will have a similar cost.

    I just got my xoom...so far I am happy with it. It is a inconvience to wait for 4g and flash but still a good deal. When you compair the pads out there for the money this is the best. I wish skype worked but understand it needs 4g, just wish Verizon would have mentioned that when I purchased my xoom.
