Question: What's the biggest difference between an Android tablet and an iOS based tablet?
Answer: The smug feeling you get for owning an Apple product.
I kid. I kid.
For Android platform lovers, the Motorola XOOM can be a decent tablet solution, especially whenever the darn thing is on sale. The most recent sale price drops the WiFi only model to the respectable pricing of $500, which ironically enough was avaialble from MacMall. You get a 32GB machine with a microSDHC expansion slot for the same price as the latest iOS tablet. Sporting the very fast Tegra 2, the Xoom can be a graphical powerhouse and chugs along just fine as you multitask between a HD clips and another redition of whatever popular tower defense games there is. For those of you still trying to save money on a Honeycomb 3.0+ tablet though, you probably should just wait to see how the Asus Transformer pans out.
These days you'll often find the Xoom dipping to the $350 price point, but once in awhile you'll get a great deal like the Xoom "Family Edition" (basically just 16GB vs 32GB for a very attractive price of mid-$250.
