    That article would have been meaningless to me without your pic...

    +1 for the pic.

    they are two very different devices...I doubt the difference it makes will have much impact.

    7" screen vs. 10.3" screen...default Honeycomb vs. tweaking, sideloaded Honeycomb...

    The general masses are not going to take the effort to get honeycomb to work on their Nook.

    But I certainly wouldn't pay what they want for the Xoom either...plus a data plan? They can byte me!

    For the price, I would be too sure. Money is a big concern to most and even it's not even a close matchup hardware wise, if one can run honeycomb reasonable as well as the xoom, it would be hard to justify that $800 price tag. :) Go jump on the Motorola section of the forum, they are not too happy about that xoom price announcement, honeycomb or not. I would have to say the NC has definitely cut into the sales of the Samsung tab.
