Motorola Xoom Droid Available

Well, as promised... I headed off to Best Buy today to check out the new Motorola Xoom and there was one on display with no apparent fanfare or excitement. Took me about 2 minutes to figure how to wake the dang thing up since no one had used it lately...the Best Buy folks were clueless on the device. After I unplugged the power supply and replugged it in the display lit up and I got it going. The Motorola Xoom on display seemed nice, but I was unable to test the WiFi or 3G since no connection was available for the Xoom...

Access inside of the Motorola Xoom was quite easy to get, requiring only a Torx screwdriver to get the main part of the cover off. Motorola is going to be taking A LOT of these apart to swap out the 3G chip for the 4G chips this summer.

iFixit's opinion:
A seasoned technician can perform this swap in less than 10 minutes. Heck, a donkey could probably pull it off in less than two hours. We have no idea why a customer couldn’t just go to a Verizon store and have on-site representatives enable 4G on the spot, just like they’re able to transfer mobile contacts and perform other activation procedures.
Well, I brought some cash with me to check out the Xoom Droid...but now the cash is on my counter waiting to get a peak at the iPad 2 next week before I make a decision! Which tablet are you leaning toward purchasing?
