    Who all owns/owned a Xoom and what are your thoughts

    I was curious who all in the community owns a Xoom or did have one and your thoughts about how it ran, mods you did, its current development, accessories you got, etc.

    I will start. I have a wifi Xoom (couldn't justify paying for two different data plans) and so far I have enjoyed the Honeycomb experience. I feel the device runs pretty well for the most part, although I unlocked and rooted it as soon as I opened it up so I don't have a good comparison to how it works stock. I decided to get this instead of waiting for the Transformer because a) I couldn't wait and b) the Xoom development has a lot of developers as well as a head start.

    The mods I have made so far:
    *Flashed Tiamat kernel but have since switched to the Cyber p8 one

    *Flashed CWR

    *Flashed a new wpa_supplicant to allow for adhoc connections (no need for 3G Xoom here :P )

    *Replaced the clock/phone fonts with custom ones

    *Flashed a couple different themes to try them out

    *Added the Transformer live wallpaper and weather widget

    *(can't think of what else right now. Lol)

    My accessories:

    * Ultra Fine sreen cover to prevent glare

    *Leather portfolio case

    *Micro to Regular hdmi

    *Micro usb to usb female (I haven't got this yet because I want to take a crack at making my own.

    I'm heading to Best Buy tomorrow to buy my Motorola XOOM Wifi. Like you said, it has a large development community, and it's almost the Nexus tablet.
