    Question xoom wifi question

    My question:

    I purchased the xoom tablet with wifi only and no long contract. Does this mean I am limited to stay wifi only, or can I get a wifi hotspot unit of some kind and use that with the xoom?

    And, yes, I did wait for the xoom specifically because I think it is the best tablet out there.

    P.S. I am still getting used to the tablet, and I am very happy so far.

    Welcome to the forum. Your Xoom should work fine with a wifi hotspot.
    Remember: It's not really yours until you've voided the warranty.

    Wifi is pretty much everywhere (at least around my town) -- coffee houses, Home Depot, grocery stores... for those few places that don't have wifi, yes you can use another device as a hotspot and you're Xoom will be able to access it.

    No such luck here in our less "Metropolitan" area.

    I use my Verizon MiFi with my Xoom all the time & it works great! Thank goodness I'm grandfathered in with unlimited data from Verizon!
