HDMI is kinda misleading since its not native, you need to buy a dongle for it. They could have done that with the original...

No, that's the Gib's mom line. She's the only one in that line.

Yep, that was the best part of the presentation and announcements today. It's been a while since Apple didn't essentially force you to get a new device to get updated functionality, or functionality that should have been there to start with.

What cracked me up was the difference in the guy "reviewing" the iPad 2 (he was basically checking it out at the event) and the guy who previewed the Xoom.

Honeycomb was fast, innovative and blazing fast. Lots of things running together and apps running in the background (proper backgrounding, not just suspended state), widgets and so forth. It looked fantastically smooth and blazing fast (my personal impressions as well), but Engadget noticed some lag here and there and pointed out the issues.

The iPad2 preview? All I heard was the sound of the guy spooging over the device. OMG, ITS SO FAAAAST, GEEZ ITS AMAZINGLY FAAAAST !!! AAAAGGH.. MY PANTS... I JUST SPOOGED MY PANTS AND I'VE NEVER SPOOGED SO FAAAAST!!!!!

The price is very competitive when you look at it in it's entirety.

Also, there were was a deal where the Xoom's were selling for about 20% off. My friend bought one (waiting for it to ship at the moment) and including some accessories, he paid about $600 bucks.

I am also very interested in seeing how the new Galaxy Tab does and Dell's new 10" tablet. I haven't had a chance to get my hands on the new Tab yet, but the new Dell Tablet felt very good and has a great form-factor. Seemed a little smaller overall than the Xoom, but not sure about the final specs

Currently thought, Xoom > all other released products. However, the Blackberry Playbook is looking VERY intriguing.

ya, your right when you compare the 32 gig ipad and the xoom, it is very competitive, It's just that I wish there was a less expensive model.
You wouldn't happen to have a link to that deal that you mentioned would ya?

Its expired now.

I think Motorola meant it to be for accessories only, but when my buddy went through and put everything together and purchased it and it only added up to about $600, he bought it

-edit-

Also Jha is on board as saying there will be an 8" version which will be cheaper and that by Q2, or H2 of this year we should see lower prices all around as component costs decrease.

That's pretty stupid, why not just give it an HDMI-D port? Even the Evo and the Droid X have one, and they're much smaller.
