    Android Tablet w/Atrix, what to buy or should I?

    Hi all, new to the Andriod world after being a die hard crackberry user for a decade. I was using a Torch and a Playbook. One thng I did like was the BBerry Bridge I could use with the Playbook. The easy teather was also a great feature. I have found my Atrix besides using it as a hotspot and Playbook don't play nice. So I am going to get a Android tablet. Is there any real advantage's I am not aware of? being I have a Motorola devce, am I better off with the Zoom? Trying to make a good buying decesion after going through a few tablets and they are stacking up and collecting dust. Any feedback would be great.By the way, love the Atrix,wonder what took me so darn long!

    I'll probably go with the Xoom if money is no object, but the Acer Iconia Tab is also a great choice.

    Looked at the Iconia, loved the USB port. But read that to tether easy with my Atrix the Zoom was sort of set up for it. I find that the price difference is about $100.00-$130.00, so the $$$ is not an issue.

    Thanks for the reply

    I have a Wifi Xoom, and I really like it, though I must admit I haven't tried to tether it to the Atrix yet. I don't have a tethering plan and haven't bothered to do the hack yet (or even try the Wifi Tether from the Market). I guess I need to get on it! Lol!

    Anyways, 3.2 has a few bugs that I hope will get worked out pretty soon, but other than that I love the Xoom. It was a refurbed ($399) unit and it works great.

    Oh, what I was reffering was if you have tried to connect the two to see how they work with eachother. Do they complement the functionality of one another or you just haven't tried at all.

    Haha! I'm just messin'. I haven't really tried anything like that yet. Though I probably will soon. Just gotta carve out some time for experimentation.

    Fwiw, I have tethered my Xoom to my NexusOne pretty extensively, while I was waiting for broadband to be installed here. It works great, though I don't see any particular symbiosis beyond connecting to the 'net. The connection was stable, and more reliable than my voice connection has been. At least I can say that!
