Ihnatko's take on the XOOM is the one to read

When the first iPad reviews came out most writers tried to be first out of the gate -- Andy Ihnatko took a bit more time and got it right. (He also had a column on the iPad a month before it was released, but the link I have to the Sun-Times site for that article is for dead now, for some reason.)

This time he has moved a little faster, but he has again come up with a very good, extensive review. You can find it now on the Sun-Times website. And while acknowledging the tablet's rough edges, and its lack of a price advantage, he does say that with "the release of the XOOM, the phrase 'a lightweight tablet that’s powerful enough to sub in for a notebook' no longer exclusively means 'iPad'."
