    New wifi only Xoom owner here.

    Thanks for the tips guys - very helpful. I liked the volume one.

    Question: Is there "caps lock"? How do I capitalize a whole word or sentence even? I'm hoping it's not a two-handed push shift and type. I can't figure it out.

    Thanks


    **update** I'm a dork..figured it out. I had tried pressing shift twice, but I wasn't "double clicking" it fast.

    You can double-tap SHIFT quickly to lock it, and touch once more to release the lock when you're done.

    Fantasic tips so far. Here is a small but good one in my opinion. You can tap and hold the shift button on the keyboard and drag over any buttons that show the button behind it "ie" the question mark. I hope this description makes sense. Tap shift and drag to where the question mark is. Makes punctuation a lot faster.
    You don't need to drag, you can just tap shift then tap whichever key.

    Brand new wifi-only owner. It is very different from my Incredible. First noob question.

    How the track do I remove widgets and shortcuts from my screens??

    My blood pressure is skyrockting. You would think that there would be some sort of tutorial at the Motorola site. The videos I find there all only play for a bit and then freeze. Only way to close is the back key. The little 'x' to close is not functional.

    Hold your finger on the widget or folder for like 3 seconds, then drag it to the top right to the trash where it says remove.

    Multitasking tip.

    If you are using your tablet in landscape mode, you only get to select ~5 apps to switch between. However, if you you tap the multitask button when in portrait mode you get a few extra (7).

    Hope I'm not too late to respond to this...but when you first turn it on, make sure you hold the power button down for EXACTLY 3.12983746123876 seconds. If you don't, it will explode.

    Hold the shortcut icon until it is able to move. Drag it up to the right over the word remove.

    To fix your notification bar click on the time in the bottom right corner, then click on the time again when it pops up, a notification bar will pop up and you can change the notifications to on.

    I had the same problem and it took me awhile to fix it lol.

    Anyone figure out if you can add the volume to the settings notification popup? I have seen it in the preview pictures and videos but its not here now.. It would be really useful as its kind of a pain to press the button with the gel case on.

    I didn't see this listed here, but if you open your application drawer and tap and hold an application you can quickly get to the app management page by dragging the icon to the “i” with the circle around it in the upper right hand corner. From here you can force close the app.

    Also you can uninstall the app too.

    Does anyone know what the little white rectangular LED is on the upper right corner (with Motorola logo in upper left)? I'm not talking about the LED that indicates the unit is charging. It is off most of the time and flashes very slowly occasionally for some unknown reason. It seemed to happen around the time the honeycomb OS was upgraded to 3.1. It's now gone as mysteriously as it came.
