Motorola Xoom vs Galaxy Tab 10.1

The Motorola Xoom was the first Honeycomb tablet available, but being first does not mean you are the best. There are many complains about the Xoom. The screen is washed out. Motorola has not upgraded the software to allow microSD cards yet. It also has not gotten the 4G LTE upgrade it was promised. The also weighs 1.6 pounds which feels very heavy when you hold it for more than a few minutes. Holding it is also difficult because the bevel is very small.

Even with the Xoom’s faults, it is still a good device. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is just better. Do you agree?

    Maybe the Galaxy Tab 10.1v is much comparable in terms of camera…
