    So, we have a 10.1 and an 8.9" What size do you prefer?

    As a reference, here is a size comparison

    For me, 8.9 because I'm always on the go

    8.9 is just the right size not too big not too small.

    The 8.9" is the right size and right weight for me. If this was the Honeycomb development device I'd probably be all over it but because it's Samsung and Honeycomb seems to still be working out bugs I'm willing to work with the bigger Xoom since it's going to receive all the updates first like the Nexus One and Nexus S.

    I don't think I'd ever consider the 10.1 since it's just a slimed down Xoom that will be months behind with updates(if it gets them).

    I will go with 8.9 to shave off a little more weight. I had the Xoom but returned because got very heavy in hand and had some problems with back casing getting loose. The 10.1 looks like a much more manageable weight compared to XOOM but 8.9 is even lighter.

    I voted 10.1, but honestly I'd like to have a 7" to compliment my xoom.

    Perhaps the Mrs. will get a Nook Color for an early birthday present...

    I like the 8.9 because I'm going to be traveling with it a lot. I just don't wanna wait so long, even the 10.1, I would have to wait 3 months

    I voted for the 8.9. The iPad I use it too big and my NC, at 7 in is too small.

    Although the 7" screen on my Galaxy Tab was okay, having a 8.9" screen seems like it would be the perfect size, and still be compact enough to through in my gym bag, or the large cargo pockets of my scrub pants when I'm at work.

    The 7 inch just seems like the perfect size for portability and useability. Obviously they are all useable, but the 7" form factor just seems to make it a bit better for me.

    I will be buying the 8.9 tab. Regardless if it isnt pure honeycomb. i like how touchwiz looks like on it. When did they say the 8.9 wifi tab will be out?

    I don't think they've really said a when. I think it was just a generic "This Summer".

    I tend to like the 8.9 better. I wonder when it's set to come out?
