    Unhappy xoom help. possible dealbreaker with no netflix?

    Hello. ive only had my xoom about 24 hrs, and i am NOT good with technical jargon, so bear with me please! i have seen that some of you are able to access netflix but i tried to downlod the apps mentoned and still no success. i also have come to learn that flash does not work on the xoom. i tried to download that leaked app but it still doesnt work for me.

    im thinking perhaps i should have done more research on xoom. maybe then id have ended up with an ipad or netbook instead. i love my droid phone and the android operataing system, but it isnt quite the same on here. (in due time, perhaps?)

    anyone who can help me trouble shoot in "dumb person, non computer techie" language, I'd appreciate it. I'm just afraid that this all might be a deal breaker for me with the xoom.

    Flash is being released tomorrow, Netflix will come eventually. Your call to whether or not you want to wait or get a ipad / netbook

    It has a learning curve even for current android users because it is a brand new OS. Just give it a week or so. If you still don't like it return it. You have 14 days to return at most places.

    I bet in a few days you won't know how to keep it out of your hands and the thought of having to send it into my Moto will be like having to let go of your first born. LOL

    WARNING: Be prepared for how little will get done around the house, or elsewhere. Moto shipped my Xoom applied with industrial-strength flypaper and I cannot get it out of my hands.

    Netflix is coming but it runs on Silverlight not Flash I believe.

    That's correct DD. Netflix runs on Microsoft silverlight, which is not available for android.

    T.Tack, while the decision is ultimately up to you, remember that what sets the XOOM apart from most other tablets is the enormous amount of support you can find for it. I bought mine for this very reason. Netflix is still in the works for mobile Android devices, but there are other ways to get movies on your device. You can save them (once reformatted) to your Xoom itself, and trust me, once you get the hang of doing things like this, it's really not even hard. You've got a good device, and one with A FUTURE, who knows if other tablets will even see this kind of support, while the Xoom should have support for a long time. Be patient and njoy your device, dude, you won't regret it.
