    So far I've only seen Engadget's. Who else has one?

    Mossberg review is absolutely terrible. He says, Um Um Um like 20 times in that video. Was he even prepared? Is he on drug?

    Engadget review was a lot more helpful than this old man's review.

    This mossberg guy is still latched onto FLASH. He does bring it up - no flash.

    What a terrible review.

    i love how they list NO (adobe) flash as a con - that would be in my PRO list.
    The usatoday article was utter ***** as well.

    Mossberg is just a horrible reviewer. What was up with the whole "battery is a drawback" and then he goes on to say that it's a drawback because you're getting the amount of battery that Apple claims you will get. Doesn't make sense. I've never watched one of his reviews, and this will be the last time I ever do.

    He's owned by The Wall Street Journal, and he couldn't afford something a little better than the light off of his screen and a webcam? My first and last time watching him as well.

    I would like to see Consumer Reports compare the Xoom and the Ipad2 .

    I'd have to say the Engadget review is the most useful so far. The rest of em are crap.

    Let me guess "We can't recommend it" because of the iPhone 4's sensitive antenna.

    I agree completely about Mossberg's review, it was weak.

    It seems to me that he has become intimidated by the rapid Android vocal minority shouting "fanboy" at anyone who (predictably) praises Apple and their wares, so he pulled back to try and look more objective.

    He would recommend it for the "average" user??? He was clearly trying to imply that a tablet like the Xoom is for a "power" user or someone who is more serious. Give me a break.

    Talk about drinking the kool-aid... He swallowed every last drop of Android's self made myth about the $800 debut of their beta OS...
