They both have dual cores, the biggest differences I can see is half the memory and a smaller screen. I was gonna wait for a wifi xoom, but im getting sick of waiting. I have been reading how a lot of people returned to tablet because of a "defect", or from my understanding, some crappy software... But if you can root it and install custom roms, and hopefully even honeycomb, I couldnt see that being a big issue. Also, how does it handle 720p movie playback? Thanks!
