Default Wi-Fi only XOOM released today

link: Wifi-only Motorola Xoom officially available today | Android Central

good for people who want a tablet but don't care about 3g/4g, and plus the xoom is just downright smexy.

I would at least hold of for the Asus Eee Pad Transformer which will have the same specs as the Xoom but starts at $399. The new Galaxy Tab's look even better and have Samsung's new PLS LCD displays.

I'm definitely looking forward more to the 10.1" Tab than either Xoom.

Being in Canada, I'm still waiting for a REAL tablet to come here - Xoom I think is launching on April 15th here?

Well I picked up the Xoom today at Future Shop. This is the first site I have gone to with it. Not bad. Not bad at all. Even with my big hands the typing in portrait I find myself really having to reach for the center characters like g b t y v. I will get used to it though. Other than that can't wait to really dive into it this weekend before I pick up the BB PlayBook on Tuesday.
