Many sites review new products before they are launched, and after having maybe thirty minutes with the device. Others are sent a test device to review, which allows for a little more time. And even a few others buy the device outright, review it, and keep it in their “phone closet” for some future purpose.
When we were asked to write up a review of the Xoom, we had a dilemma.
PhoneCan couldn’t afford to send anyone to CES a couple months back, so that type of review was out of the question. And the manufacturers surely aren’t going to send their products to be reviewed by a site that’s focused more on the empowerment of the customer than they are driving sales. So, that left us with only one option left: buy a device and test it.
So we did.
And our review comes after the break.
