Bad: After sales service stinks
Comment: On updating one of Motorola's automatic updates it froze and kept running, I had to spend hours trawling the net to find out how to stop the thing and close it down, all this time it was getting hotter and hotter. This has fried the battery and because it is just out of guarantee a new battery has to be purchased, I have been waiting over 3 weeks now for Motorola to get back in touch with details and price etc. But looking on the net I find they are over £40, in my mind I would sooner buy a new tablet as prices are really coming down now. As far a Motorola are concerned I would never buy another one of their products their after sales stinks. I have phoned them 3 times, emailed them, and even gone onto live chat all with no results and a promise to get back to me, they never have.
Good: Great battery life, easy to use, mini usb connectivity,
Bad: No usb charge facility, a bit on the heavy side
Comment: A very good tablet for the price £329. Great to watch movies on and surf the internet. Camera 5mp is excellent for HD capture. All in all a good all round 10.1 in Tablet I look forward to using it on holidays and business trips.
Good: Great battery life, Fast to charge, Does anything
Bad: Proprietary charger
Comment: It's a fantastic piece of kit. I use it all the time when it's inconvenient to use my laptop. It's great to take into meetings to have access to bug-tracking systems, emails and take notes on. The fact you can't charge it via USB loses it half a star but this is one of the best purchases I've ever made.
Good: Very quick, good battery performance too
Bad: Browser has fault - just google it to see that it's not just me. Very heavy
Comment: I've had this a couple of days and as a regular Android user, this has blown me away. If you're used to Froyo, then Honeycomb will amaze you. Don't be put off that there aren't many Honeycomb apps, most Android apps work, and there were enough for getting on with on the Market.
Good: i love it butttttttttttttttttttttttttt
Comment: anyone in the uk with the xoom ??? i got one but am having probs with the 3g settings, wont connect from a sim card ,its a voda sim ,i sopke to voda and told them what i wanted it for ,was told it was just a case of popping the sim card in and that was it..
my son tried his 3 sim but still the same ???? what am i doing wrong ???
Good: Almost everything!
Bad: Weight, charger, speakers facing back.
Comment: This tablet looks great for a 10"! My main rant to Motorola is about the charger. Seriously, you should fire the person responsible for the idiotic idea of not having a micro USB charger.
Think that people travelling hate to pack 30 kinds of chargers...
Good: USB!!! Why dont all the Tablets have this???
Comment: The Xoom is the ONLY (decent) tablet that has some form of easy way for me to connect my external hard drive which is essential for me as I want this for business travel. Why hasnt Apple and the rest worked this out??? I dont want to be restricted
Bad: No standard USB charging, are you friggin' kidding me!
Comment: Please MOTOROLA, get a clue.
USB is a standard, use it. NO PROPRIETARY CHARGING.
You just lost a sale you dumbtards.
Good: Nice design on the Home screen
Bad: Everything else, weight, sound, general usability, navigation
Comment: After checking the Android 3.0 presentation in Google where they showcased the Xoom, I was eager to try out the Motorola Xoom tablet, and when I did finally get to try it out last week, I wasn't at all impressed really.
Have you just tried to navigate and use the Motorola for simple tasks such as changing the volume, writing an email or viewing Youtube, it takes twice as long than as an IPad 2, and it feels very weighty as well.
This device is only great for developers for tweaking, and improvising apps/interface of the Android 3.0, but for anything else, this first attempt for tablets is a bit of a disaster, but its next release will surely improve.
