Just bought an ipad 2....
Before anyone ask, yes I have a xoom and yes I'm keeping the xoom. I just wanted to play with it then I'm probably going to be gifting it to my mom because she has been talking about the ipad forever! Until then I will be doing some comparisons videos of the xoom vs ipad2
First impressions this thing is LIGHT! very light when compared to the heavy xoom. I have yet to boot this thing up because i have sync to itunes. I dont even have itunes on my pc and I actually hate itunes. I'm currently very reluctantly installing itunes.
be sure to check out my youtube channel (in my signature) I am currently uploading a unboxing video. I will soon have a comparison up.

Yeah those cameras are a joke.... however, with the time I have had with tablets, taking pictures with them is a little awkward.
Considering that Apple prides themselves on quality though, they surely skimped on the cameras (and possible the speaker too).

Thanks Oldesk, thats nice to know...
I look forward to your comparisons as well.
Like I said in another thread, as a Xoom user and android user (my wife and I both have Evo's, my son has an Optimus), and also ipad 2, I wish I could blog somewhere to document my experience without any flak. This too is my first apple product.
Will you have more videos tonight?

But it may be okay to post thoughts and impressions in the thread. Not to steal from the OP or anything. I'm sure his comparison by video will be very good though. Looking forward to it.

I tried two Apple Stores, 4 Best Buys and two Walmarts before I have up. I've had an iPad 1 for a year and plan to get the iPad 2. There are just too many apps I am attached to. But I intend to keep on Xooming, cause Android is where its at!!!

As a former iPad user this Xoom is pretty damn sweet. I had an Evo for a couple of months before switching jobs and turning it in. I love Google's voice integration and this thing feels very fast at everything so far. I'm sure the iPad 2 is faster as well, but have to admit I was a bit hesitant. The speaks are impressive in terms of volume and the browser is very nice. I don't play many games so the key things for me are web, email, Slingplayer which works awsome and news apps.
While my personal phone is a JB iPhone ill use it as a hotspot unrptil LTE shows up and I upgrade the Xoom. The camera on the Xoom is very nice and good quality, as the I pads camera seemed grainy. I don't care about megapixels over quality, but Apple dropped the ball there for sure.
I look forward to more reviews and hope to learn more about Android OS, not to mention pretty excited to see flash coming so soon. Its not that I live flash, but I do love mupy Hulu, although they will probably block it

The only gripe I have is that you have to hide the video window in Google chat to type to someone.

Thanks for the continued interest I'm planning on making the video after I get some more time with the iPad 2. So check back with me on Sunday (13th) or Monday (14th).
The browser isn't all that great I do miss my tab browsing. Camera isn't all that great but I kind of love the fixed focused makes taking pictures lighting fast.
Again I need some ideas to what you guys want to see in this video.
