First thing that comes to mind is the auto brightnes. Engadget said it and they were right. Its very "all over the place" I had to turn it off and set it to medium since it was fluctuating so badly.

I would also love to see a way where I can access my bookmarks in the browser with out havng to scroll all the way to the top.

I dont like how every time you install an app it throws it on the home screen automatically...

Also not sure if everyone else is having this problem but the HDMI is over scanning on my TV.

I have had 7 reboots already... I think that could be due to program incompatibility which will come later I hope.

The auto-rotation. Some of the apps I used on my Ipad are not as smooth (such as the Kindle app & msecure). I'm still playing around with it and may know more later.

Book marks with a 3d scolling widget would have been nice. Split thumb board for texting in landscape. Hope swiftkey puts something together! And for google, really no native google voice app? Or google call like on desktop email? Guess i'm going to have to break down. And start using google talk.


Otherwise love it and can't wait for flash, netfix, & hulu!

Found another, I can not find a way to stop the screen from going to sleep while on the dock. I would like to use it for a clock at night but it keeps timing out.

All you have to do is tap the little arrow down tab on the top left and it will display the icon for bookmarks.

Not a fan of the lack of swype and obviously the other issue known prior to release.

Try the demo of SlideIT from the market.

It's almost identical to Swype, but it seems the capitalization, where you trace above the top of the keyboard, doesn't work the same way. It seems it's easier to edit the dictionary than in Swype...

Not quire sure which one I prefer, but SlideIt works on the Xoom and Swype doesn't. I might end up using SlideIT on my Droid X just so it's consistent across platforms.

In the Market press "My Apps..." at the top. The press the settings icon (upper right). Uncheck "Add shortcuts for new apps." Done. Now you can add them with the new "+" icon on the home screen or long press like normal.

Don't know why power button was put on back. They could have easily put it on one of the sides. Moto should have figured out a way NOT to introduce yet another proprietary charger.

The power button is on the back because that's where your fingers are when you hold it, its actually MORE conveniant, also the XOOM is closer to a laptop than a phone so no surprise that the charger is more similar to a computer charger, I'm sure microUSB wasn't gonna cut it

To add to some earlier posts, you don't have to touch the little arrow on the tab to pull down the address bar just tap anywhere on the currently selected tab, no mis-hitting the little arrow necessary

Also there's an app called Thumb Keyboard, its XOOM optimized and if u select the 10 inch setting and honeycomb theme it will split the keyboard beautifully and look good

Just a note, if you do check out Thumb Keyboard make sure to try all the different available settings, changing just a couple options can make a big change
