xoom or galaxy

Post by WeaponX »

The wifi version of the xoom hits stores this weekend. However, with the Galaxy 10.1 on the horizon...

If you wanted one - which would you go for? the 10.1 looks pretty awesome.

I like the Xoom in theory...but it hasn't delivered on all it's promises, which makes me leery. For instance the SD card slot doesn't work...hehe. Despite that, the xoom has better[Edit cause I was wrong]...so that would be my vote.

Galaxy 10.1 has a better camera and 16 gigs storage

Xoom has HDMI out and 32 gigs storage.

So I will probably go with whichever costs less.


So in conclusion, back to where you started. I have been thinking about getting a Tablet pretty soon too though. It will probably be a Xoom, we should go play with one together some time.

I don't see the point of a tablet. If I cant fit it in my pocket I'll never have it and if I need a bag for a tablet, I might as well get a portable laptop.

This of course does not answer your question and can be ignored.

Buy whichever tablet you want, it won't matter in the long run, not for someone like you.

The point? I bet you wouldn't shop at Walmart for clothes would you.

Man, I don't know,lol It's a 64gig wifi+3G (AT&T) in overall good condition, just a tiny scratch in the bottom corner( glass side, could prolly be polished away. I have it hiding under my screen protector). I could send pics?

I'm terrible at pricing, and selling crap to friends, but if you want a tablet,I'd still reccommmend an iPad. Maybe between $200-$300?

Keeping my iPad 64/3G, the iPad 2 isn't a big enough upgrade to bother. Either iPad would be better than anything android at the moment.

April 2011:


Weap walks into the local StarBucks with an army green satchel he bought from Urban Outfitters slung over his right shoulder. Inside awaits his brand new Galaxy Tab. He finds a place to sit for the next 5 hours and takes a sip of his cinnamon dolce crème frappuccino. He looks around and is surrounded by a sea of IPads and Macbooks. Slowly he removes the Galaxy Tab from his satchel, a smirk forms on his face, pupils dilated. He tries at first but then pretends to be able to concentrate through the sound of 5 blenders and constant chatter. Twenty minutes later Weap hears a "hi", before him stood a young attractive women in her 20's. She asks if the seat across from him was taken. Weap nods, avoiding eye contact playing it cool as he closes the minesweeper window.
