    Posting from my new Wi-Fi Xoom :-)

    Made the decision to pick up a wifi only Xoom this morning. I ended up buying it a Staples since Best Buy claimed that they didn't have any in stock. So far I am loving my new toy although I think my net book is jealous since it is likely I won't be using it much anymore.

    Are there any tips or tricks I should be aware of as a new honeycomb user (I am an android phone user)?

    I got it about 3 hours ago. Made one post on another forum and decided I didnt like the keypad. I might end up paying for that thumb pad app. But until then my XOOM is a multimedia device and not a laptop replacement.

    Overall I love it. Super fast and smooth. Soon as I logged in it pulled all my apps and email accounts. Only thing that didnt auto install was the Amazon app, but that took all of about 2 minutes to get working right. And it seems when I purchase something there I can put it on all my devices. Angry Birds Rio looks so pretty I could cry. Also highly recommend the Kongregate app if you dont have it.

    Kind of expensive for something without a working SD card slot, but with 32GB on board I can be forgiving. My only beef is the lack of videos that play. Most MPG's dont work at all and neither do WMV's. Music is good but this thing is too big and clunky to use as a PMP, so it will just be for web and movies.
    Calender widget does not work but the app does. I kinda like to have the widget though, it shows me everything coming up.
    Gmail and Hotmail and Yahoo all look good both in the widget and full size app.

    Adding stuff to, or changing the desktop is SOOOO much easier than on previous android versions. They made this thing incredibly easy to use, though I have had one android phone or another since the G1, so maybe it comes naturally to me.

    If anybody has a specific question I will try to answer it. As per original complaints I see there are few apps specifically for Honeycomb 3.0. But all the previous stuff works well so its not a huge problem for me.

    Welcome fellow xoomers! For the best help, read the stickied threads in each subforum. Thumb keyboard and swiftkey are my favorite keyboard replacements
