Hi all, I'm new to this forum and this is my first post. I'm having a really hard time deciding between a Asus Transformer and Motorola Xoom. The thing is there's a current promotion for the Xoom 32GB that makes is the same price as a Transformer 16GB and that's what makes my decision so hard. I'd done a lot of research and these are the two I've come down to although I've not tested both first hand, I've made list of what I like and don't like from both based on extensive research, photo's, video, etc..(some taken from review sites like NoteBookCheck). Asus Transformer: + IPS Screen (brighter, better viewing angles) + Better On Screen Keyboard (not to sure if Xoom keyboard can be customized to look the same) + Design (simply looks better to me and the hard plastic back is great not to worry about scratches) + Accessories (I'm not getting the dock but it's great to know I have the option in the future as an add-on) + Brand (not a big deal but I trust Asus more since they've been in the computer business for very long) + Updates (Asus gets their updates out faster than Motorola especially here in Canada, not a big deal since I can root the Xoom and flash to US firmware for updates) - Price (funny cause ATM the Xoom is cheaper where I live, 32GB Xoom = 16GB Transformer) - Speakers (I've read the speakers in the Transformer is the bottom pit of all the Tablets, luckily there's a Voodoo app if I root) - Temperature (NoteBookCheck say the Xoom runs up to 7 degrees lower than the Transformer, which is believable since the Xoom has a metal back-plate and better internal heatskink; I've seen both fully dissembled) - Cameras (1.3MP/5MP as oppose to 2MP/5MP on the Xoom plus the camera video quality is not as good) Motorola Xoom: + Price (as stated above 32GB Xoom is same price as 16GB Transformer ATM) + Speakers (I've heard the Xoom has really nice and loud speakers, believable since I've seen them dissected) + Built Quality (it shouldn't be much different than the Asus in terms of built quality but the temperature does attribute to it since the device can potentially last longer and preserve the battery life better too) + Camera (I've seen videos on YouTube comparing the rear camera video quality and the Xoom looks better, I pretty sure the front camera on the Xoom is better since it has a higher megapixel) + WiFi (2.4/5Ghz WiFi, not a big deal since I've heard many have problems with 5ghz on their Xoom plus it's just not needed for such a device ATM) + USB on the GO (can be done if rooted, very cool since the Asus needs a dock for full size USB function) - Design (I've not a fan of the looks and form factor of the Xoom) - Screen (not IPS but still acceptable since I'm pretty use to my laptops LED backlit screen but I think the viewing angle on a Tablet might be important) - Accessories (not way to extend battery life like dock on Asus plus no SD card reader) - Updates (not a big deal but if I do not root and flash to US firmware 3.2 update may take forever to hit Canada which is pretty huge since 3.2 enables the MicroSD slot) Overall I'd prefer the Asus Transformer is it were cheaper like at launch simply because of the IPS screen, design and updates (MicroSD working on Asus long time in Canada) but since the Xoom is cheaper I'm opening up my options. Please feel free to add any comments or first hand experience to any of the above Tablets, do not refer me to another tablet because these are my two final decisions tablets...I'm in no rush to buy and willing to wait for the Transformer to price drop or go on sale if needed.
