Black cloudy spot on Xoom screen
Alright the spot is not serious. You can barely see it but I know its there. Anyone else have something like this? I just got it 2 days ago from Bf Photo and I'm sure they could replace it but I'm so in love with it that I just don't want to go through the hassle. Its like a small little cloudyish black spot that can barely be seen on certain backgrounds. I'm wondering if it will just go away? Anyone else know about something like this?Just swapped out the Xoom Tablet for an IPhone. I never ever thought I would get an IPhone. Im currently eating my words. Apple has a lot going on here....Im loving both platforms.

No see heres the thing. I notice the spot on a white background but from a further angle. It seems to show up on like darker colored backgrounds. Like The Market has the grey background and it shows up there. Its like cloudy and dark. When theres words or images there, you dont notice it at all. Ive wiped the screen as much as I could and its not on the glass itself. Its actually imbossed in the screen. Its not to much of a big deal but I catch myself looking for it all the time now.
I think I might just send it back for a replacement. I just recieved it from BH Photo. Its just gonna drive me nuts to send something like this back and have to wait for it again. Its not a cheap device. Ive tried a couple Apps in the market for doing things to the screen but they didnt seem to work. If I can snap a picture of it I will try my best and post it up.

I'm feeling luckier and luckier every time I read one of these threads.
So far my XOOM has absolutely no lag, no blurry spots, and I can count the forced closures on one hand (all from incompatible apps which were immediately removed).
I should go to Vegas. ;-)

Well I took the plunge and sent it back. BHPhoto seems to be a really realiable company. Placed the Return on line and the next day they sent me an email with directions on sending it back along with a prepaid shipping label through UPS. Made a call to them and they said since your only so many days from recieving it, there is no questions asked and we will re-send you a brand new device.
I made a decision that was hard for me lol. I just have no patience. But Im happy I did this because I know that cloudy spot would have drove me insane. Every Pixel app I tried to fix it didnt do the trick. I have used one of those apps on one of my android phones before for a colored stuck pixel and it worked perfect. So I wont totally count them out. Oh well, they recieve it tommarow and will ship me another . Cant wait lol
Just a quick Update. Recieved the new replacement a few days ago and Im hounding the screen to find a spot. No spots. That one was indeed defected. Thanks for the tips and input guys!
