I read that too! But I didn't realize the Xoom was more expensive!
I dunno...you know me...that last to jump on the bandwagon. I'm going to use my Droidx throughout 2011 for all of my on-the-go internet needs...or, for when I'm being too lazy to walk from my knitting chair into my office laptop!
The Droidx has really spoiled me! However, using my laptop for keyboarding is much quicker, and efficient. SWYPE is fast for the Droidx virtual keyboard...but not as fast as my fingers on this laptop keyboard!
When I'm loading photos into my Rav projects...I can't use the touch screen on the Droidx to 'drag/drop' photos from your Flickr tool into the project. So...the laptop isn't going to go anywhere, regardless of the SCARE about laptops being a thing of the past someday.
This CLOUD thing is ridiculous. You've no doubt read about it. It's being heavily promoted on TV ads. Lots of talk out there about it making real software
(on our 'puters) become obsolete. I do not
want to do my business in the CLOUD, somewhere in outer space. I want my software right here
office. They can shove the CLOUD.
It might serve some folks' needs...but not mine.
