Excuses go from 0 to Xoom in a Flash!

Who do we take to task today? I think it would have to be Motorola.

As a pro-Apple user, I can’t help but to have a sore spot for Motorola – the company that took 18 months to get past 500MHz and never got past 167MHz for the front-side bus. But, I digress…

Where was I? Oh, right. I suppose I didn’t stray too much. Let’s talk about the Xoom. All our Android fans need something new that they can boast about to all their iPad-carrying buddies. So, rather than write more paragraphs, let’s look at some boast-worthy attributes of the Xoom. 😛

  • It’s more expensive. Apple-haters LOVE more expensive stuff. Oh, right. They don’t. But in this case, they’ll make an exception. Get your entry-level tablet here. Only $800!!!!
  • It has Flash! Take that, Apple-sheep-lovers. I mean… take that, Apple-lover-sheep. Oh, what’s this? Flash won’t be out until early spring? I thought Flash was mobile-ready. Adobe has been claiming this since 2007. Why isn’t Flash PERFECT by now? C’mon. I’m waiting for the excuses. This post is public. Start adding them.
  • It does allow for wi-fi only. You don’t need 3G……… The Xoom when it ships will cost $800 off-contract and will require users to pay for one month of Verizon 3G service with activation before having permission to use Wi-Fi. Motorola chief Sanjay Jha has said a Wi-Fi only version is coming and should cost roughly $600, but it won’t be available until sometime later. Please ignore the fine print. Don’t read it. I said don’t press control + (or command +) to see it. It’s like an eclipse and will burn your eyes out.

Moto Xoom confirmed for Feb 24, Flash delayed until spring

    Well, Xoom is plasticky so it really has its cheapo side! Not in the price, but still! All Android fans, rejoice!
