    I'd like to see somebody test this side by side on wifi. Go to msnbc.com and see how long it takes to load completely, so there is no checkerboard and compare the iPad 2 to the Xoom. I tried this in store with the iPad 2 and it actually froze the first time. I tried it a few more times on other display models and it never froze again, just that one time. MSNBC is a bit slow loading on a desktop and notebooks. I did a spur of the moment test loading the page on the iPad and most of the Macbook Pros and iMacs.

    If you only have an iPad 2, try it out and see how it loads.

    I know there are other reviews dealing with this, but i do know that "soldierknowsbest" just did a comparison on these two so you may you want to check it out. He is an apple enthusiast but I thought he was pretty honest with his review.

    If there aren't any Xoom and iPad 2 owners out there, how about some iPad 2 owners try this and post your experience, ie, how fast did it load, how long did the checkerboarding last, etc.

    I thought a few of you here had both of these? Maybe no one's been around.
