    I sold my Xoom on eBay and purchased a 16GB GT 10.1. The screen and overall weight were just really nice. I found that even after I rooted my Xoom, I hardly ever used the SD card. I also had less than 3GB of stuff on it so the GT fit the way I use tablets very well. Don't get me wrong, I sold my 32GB 3G+Wifi iPad 2 to get the Xoom. The GT is really freaking nice minus the extra ports.

    I played with one across this weekend. 3 MP rear camera, no SD. Sexy looking though. Lighter is nice. I have contributed nothing to this debate but confusion.

    That's what matters, finding a device that fits your usage case.

    Just to add my 2 cents..I played around with a buddy of mine's GT10.5. Yes the colors are very rich/poppy, yes it's very slim and sleek. But goodness, the Xoom is waaaay snappier.
    I always use Netflix/Gamefly as 'testing websites' on tabs, and the GT10.5 just choked especially on Gamefly.com Everytime I tried on clicking on the more smaller icons, it would just click on something else an ad, or another link. The Xoom was seamless even on the stock browser. Plus, you don't need to mash the Xoom to get an icon/app to launch. The GT10.5 you really need to either push hard or push several times for anything to open. Meh....my vote for the Xoom!

    You can't have much on your device then, I've nearly filled up 32GB worth of space with videos, apps, games and music. But I still have 32GB of space on an SD card so its all good. I think I'd fill up a GT 10.1 in about a week of having it.

    The GT is very nice, but from what I have read, it is slow to charge. I love how quickly my Xoom charges back up. I also am confident the SD becoming active will happen before I fill the base memory.

    As I posted in the new owners thread, I was contemplating between GT10.1 and Xoom and after comparing them side by side, I went with the Xoom. GT was just too fragile and plasticy despite its gorgeous screen.

    Well, thin is not always great. Now, they are experiencing this problem with the screen which seems to be problem with the layering and the somewhat "flexible" nature of the tablet. If I understand it correctly, all of them show this under a certain temperature. Since I am joining the Xoom rather late with 3.2 running, I probably skipped some of the early frustrations. Now, the GT owners are at that stage.
