Getting a Xyboard...
Had to use Asurion to replace my Xoom since I broke the screen...
Funny thing is, Xoom still works fine... I just don't want that messed up screen anymore... Anyways, Asurion email came in stating that my replacement was no longer on back-order and the replacement model was "XYBRD1016" instead of some variant of Xoom... Pretty surprised by that and I have mixed feelings...
I'm not sure if they're sending me a 16gb model or a 64gb model, as I could read the part number 2 ways, XYBRD 10.1, 6 for 64gb or XYBRD 10", 16gb... I'll be super pissed if they send me a 16gb model since the Xyboard doesn't have expandable storage... I've got 64gb in my Xoom now thanks to a 32gb MicroSD, no way I'm downgrading to 16gb! Though if they send me a 32gb I'll be perfectly happy.
Anyways, what all is known about the Xyboard? I know the specs but the information from the development aspect is pretty limited... Am I right to assume this will have a locked bootloader since it's not a Google Experience device? I can't even find that on the Google! I'm going to try ICS on my Xoom later tonight(and ditch 3G until I get my Xyboard) so I'm sure I'm going to miss having it when I get the Xyboard...

Good luck and hope you get the 64Gb model. Not manmy here have one yet but I think they have already set up some threads for them.
Nexus 4 - CyanMod 10.1
SGS-II - Rooted - Jedi Mind Trick VX3
Samsung Note II - Jedi Master 14
Motorola Xoom - WiFi - Rooted - EOS 4.2.1 Nightlies
I'm gonna miss my Xoom... Someone suggested selling the Xyboard and picking up a used Xoom but I'd rather sell the Xyboard and pick
up a Transformer Prime and a MiFi... I probably won't do that though.
edit: MiFi because I don't own a smartphone, I got my Xoom and completely dropped my Droid, got a Samsung flip-phone.
edit2: I'll have my Xyboard by tomorrow.
They sent me a frigging 16gb model
It's no wonder Asurion is rated an F, somehow 16gb = 32gb to them. They will not budge so I removed their coverage from my plan. Won't give them another dime for this crap.
yeah thats kinda underhanded.
