Anyone else notice this bug?
So I was just messing around with my Xoom and I noticed something interesting. If you keep your Xoom uprighte (camera at the top in landscape) it has very smooth animations when on the home screen. However, if you hold the Xoom upside down (camera on the bottom) the frame rates seem to drop and things looks jerkier.
Anyone else get this?
I am using a stock, unrooted Xoom wifi.

I'd be jerky too if you held me upside down
I tried that on mine and didnt notice a difference...I am on a TIAMAT kernel wth the OC GPU...maybe thats it..Droid X (rooted Froyo) - Sticking with Froyo until someone figures out tethering on GB.
Xoom Wifi - Rooted with BRD boot img and sporting one of his OC Kernels...

At this point I'm guessing that the future release will be called Tegra 3...

I still think it's just a software issue that Google hasn't gotten around to. There aren't any performance problems with orientation on hardware far inferior to Tegra 2 after all.
Maybe some manufacturers have fixes for it, like how Samsung had a hardware accelerated browser before Google added it to the stock browser in Honeycomb.

at I/O they said it was a problem with honeycomb running on 'specific hardware'
So it's likely a combination of both. Tegra 2 might not fully support some aspects of the honeycomb code.
I'm inclined to think that if this was a simple software issue it wouldn't have survived this long.
