Just sold my Gtab on Ebay yesterday right after I picked up my Xoom. Don't get me wrong I loved my Tab (mainly cause of the size) but I have no regrets selling it. I also have a Evo, so the only real thing I lost by selling the Tab was the size factor. The Xoom on the other hand feels like a whole different ball game to me. The Honeycomb OS alone makes me wonder why I didn't wait for this Tablet in the first place.

Made the move

I got the Xoom on the release date from Verizon store. Was excited at first but reality set-in. I don't like it at all. Perhaps Gingerbread takes some getting use too. Only 16 applications designed to take advantage of the larger screen. I think I'll stay with the Galaxy for a while and box-up the Xoom.

You mean 'Honeycomb' I'm guessing. The Galaxy tab is they same os on the cell phones... I'm loving this new tablet optimized Os personally.

I have both, and I have to say they are quite different animals; perhaps since I have 4 months of use on the Tab and only one day on the Xoom. There were times yesterday when I put down the Xoom and picked up the Tab, because I could do something quicker / faster on the Tab. I am sure that will change over the next couple of weeks (like how I know the differences between my Droid 2 Global and the Tab now). One thing that won't change is the size. While I enjoy looking at the larger screen, the size/weight difference of the Xoom over the Tab makes we wonder if I will take the Xoom on my next business trip (next week) or stay with the Tab. Whichever I do take, I find I use the Droid tablet over my notebook 90 / 10. One of these days I will make one of my trips without the notebook.
