I got mine from best buy at 11 when they opened. There was a small line for 5 people all waiting for it. I am so happy with it.

I went to Staples this morning half an hour ago, when they opened. When folks said they were going to sell the Protection Plan HARD, they weren't lying!! The sales guy was pushy as HELL. The damn plan had a cost of $239.99. There was one couple in front of me. I walked to the side, and sneak called the Best Buy that was 5 blocks away. They guy said he would hold it for me. I couldn't run out of Staples fast enough!! I "xoomed" down the street and bought it from Best Buy. Cheaper protection plan and Reward Zone points!!

Now to set up my Xoom!! I shall return.

Wanting to know this myself. I've made my mind up that I am buying a Xoom, and if Sam's is really selling if for this much it's a no brainer where to buy.

I wanted it from sams but the 2 in my area will not be caring the xoom. so Best Buy it was. They could not tell me a price because its not in their system when I asked.

bought from the local staples which was empty. really tried to shove the protection plan down my throat, first the sales assistant then the manager at the till. ignored their pleas.
first thoughts are it's the heaviest 10" tablet I've used, very smooth operation and I wish there was a back button. nothing I can't get used to.

Lol me too ! Launch day, february 24th . Best tablet I've had so far, I actually got rid of my I pad for it. The xoom is better than any tablet apple throws out there!

On my wifi xoom now. Best buy had 5 when I was there. Two were pre-orders and two others purchased. The seattle best buy didn't prep for it with order quantity

Got mine at costco this morning. They had 20 and only one other person was there st opening to get one. (scottsdale,az)

Now that it is in hand I can return my 3g xoom.

$589 with gel case and paying with american express doubles the warranty!

Got one at Costco too; Laguna Niguel, CA. They opened the doors at 9:55. No one in line so I was the first to get one. They had nine in stock before I took mine :)

Well, this is the Wifi only version so you will either need a 4G hotspot or the $800 4G/3G version ($600 on contract).

I still can't believe you need to send your hardware back to Moto just to get the 4G upgrade.

Got mine at Costco as well - posting from it... 589, used Amex, freegel case (not needed IMO). Going to keep this for a couple months until Sammy comes out and then choose between the two.

I played with the wifi xoom today and am going to stick with the Ipad 2 for now.

I am a huge Android fan and honeycomb is fine. The main thing for me was the weight. Compared to the Ipad 2, this thing is noticeably heavier. Waiting for a lighter 3.0 tablet...

Bought mine ALSO. but I also bought a slingbox hd to setup with my Xoom. Its amazing i can watch live tv or on demand stuff, or netflix from my xbox. SLINGBOX and XOOM are a perfect pair. i returned my verizon xoom and got the wifi and sling box for the same price.

Got mine today at staples with zero pressure for the plan. Its official my nook is now retired the xoom is great. it does have some weight to it but ill get used to it, haven't had one problem yet. Also flash works unlike my droid2 which is nice just waiting for the SD slot to work.

Just benchmarked my xoom and got 1823 better than my droid2 on fission which was 1793. This is with no adjustments I am sure I can tweak it to get better results. My biggst problem is no sirius xm appcpain to listen to thru website otherwise lovecrhe xoom

Picked up mine from Staples and sales dweeb plus his manager tried to sell me on protection plan and insurance. I told them that I didn't have time for that and to just ring up and charge my credit card.

Got mine are Costco this morning... think I got the first one. Loving it! Invisible shield didn't have a screen protector so i ordered one online. Gathers fingerprints quick, but otherwise I'm very happy with it :-)

Got mine on Friday and have had it with me everywhere I go. I only have one issue. A website I use for work will not display correctly, other than that I love this thing.

Got mine at the local BB with 2 other people at 11 am... and none of us got the warranty.

I love the grippy edge... I just wish the whole back was rubberized, or was grippier. I don't care if it's a pain to keep clean, it's easier to hold that way. (Or rather, it fools me into thinking it's easier to hold that way.)

I also picked up my wifi xoom at BB. When I approached the kid at one of the sales stations in the computer area and asked if they had a wifi xoom in stock, he gave me a puzzled look and said. "I don't think that's out until April..." I informed him that this was the releae date and he should look into it. I walked with him toward the display area and looked in the glass case below the demo model and saw two blue boxes, and recognized those as the box the wifi model ships in and said, "that looks like them there" he said oh yeah. So I got mine. I have my girlfriends 1st Gen ipad to sit and obsessivly compare it to. I can come up with a list of pros and cons to each. But that is another story all together. In all, my 1st 24hrs has been enjoyable with the xoom.

I've had it for a day now, and I must say that I really like it. I took back the ipad 2 last week, and I don't regret it. I need more 3.0 apps, though.

got mine at BB sunday -- town of 75k people, one BB, no Staples... BB only got TWO, I got the 2nd one - sucked for the guy behind me. Lovin' this thing - it's a beast !

I purchased mine on the 28th and purposely waited one week to comment. Allow this to speak for me...I AM KEEPING IT!! Well done, Motorola. Besides the price (and Staples sucky expensive insurance plans), I cannot make a complaint. Be warned though...not all of the apps have caught up with Honeycomb yet. Although, I am sure that will be rectified within a couple of months. The main ones I need are working fine, especially Documents to Go, Beautiful Widgets, Angry Birds and others.
