Compared with the Apple iPad, the Xoom is a little wider and shorter in landscape orientation. Because of a slimmer bezel, its total size is slightly smaller than the iPad, in spite of its larger screen.

Up until now, the best Android tablets have been running versions of Android 2.2. Examples include the Samsung Galaxy Tab (right).

The Xoom's multitouch keyboard is a breeze to type on. Unlike the iPad, buttons for tab, emoticon, and settings are available directly from the keyboard.
