I agree with most of my list except the volume buttons I would prefer not having the buttons at all.

However I vote for the the charging panel work in both landscape / portant

Thanks

I find the volume buttons are much easier to access when the gel case is on the Xoom. The gel case has little raised nubs where the volume butons are that makes them easier to press.

**chuckle chuckle**

My realistic hope for a Xoom 2 would be just a tad lighter. I'm fine with the rest of the specs. :)

I wouldn't be surprised if some hacker/modder was already working on something like this, already saw a post about windows 7, not sure if it would work but would be interesting to dual boot droid os/win 7.

I wanna see the charging port moved so it could be charged while its being used in the portfolio case.
Well, it can be done by removing the Xoom from the portfolio case, rotating 180? and putting it back, this time with the power jack on the top... But of course then you are blocking the speakers and power button. :-\

So I'm right with you... I understand why they put the power on the bottom, because it's great for docking stations. But it's clear to me the designer of the Xoom and the designer of the official Xoom case failed to observe fully what the other was doing.

My only issue is the bezel... I'd actually prefer a wider bezel, shat I can comfortably hold the Xoom in either mode (landscape/portrait) in either hand and not have to worry about accidentally and inappropriately touching the screen!

1. Move the charge/sync ports to the side, and keep the charging leads on the bottom for the docks
2. Enable charging through the micro-USB (perhaps with a dual USB cable). How freaking stupid was that design choice?
3. Do something smarter with the volume buttons
4. Stronger WiFi antenna - mine blows.... never better than 54g

Things I thought were bad but actually work for me:
Power switch on back
Top mounted headphone jack in landscape orientation

On the software side:
Natively decode HD mpeg4 and. Mkv
Default the browser to desktop mode and move the selector out of debug and into the Settings

On the carrier side:
Allow voice calling
