    I think I made a mistake when I set my xoom up. Since I have a Droid 2 phone, I thought that if I backed from google to my xoom, it would import contacts etc. It has imported all the apps and many look pixalated. I don't want to lose what came with the xoom, just get rid of what didn't. Was youtube on the phone to start? It looks very pixalated. And is it possible that some apps were actually not made for the xoom as they appear to be the size on the screen of my phone screen. Any help would be much appreciate.

    thanks,
    LC

    if you have a wifi only zoom it doesn't seem to include an external factory reset.
