Huge Android Fan - XOOM Tablet

Aaron Jones's picture

I think the XOOM tablet is fantastic. I know it is dated and with new offerings like the Nexus 7 available, it can appear a little... antiquated. However, I really do recommend a tablet to any one who conducts business or spends time in the field instead of an office. A sturdy bag and a tablet can increase productivity and I constantly get compliments from clients when we sit down and I demonstrate web technology on my tablet.

You can't go wrong with the sheer geek-chic that comes with a suit, tie, and an android tablet.

I am fan of android. I have 2 mobiles with android and one tablet. I like it a lot the ui, eventhough i am not a developer i like that you can do whatever you like with your device or tablet.
I have the opportunity to use roms for each of my devices and customize it as i like it.
I am using all the time for games, applications, movies etc
but when it comes for subtitling i use my laptop cause i need desperatly my keyboard.
