What features are you comparing? My guess is they are all going to be personal preferences or opinions. After playing with the Ipad2 and Xoom for about 4 hours at bestbuy the only thing the Ipad had over the Xoom were the apps, but please let me know if I overlooked anything as I still have 11 days to go and return my Xoom and get an Ipad.

No, that's accurate. The Xoom's only fault right now is a limited number of tablet-specific apps. Time will rectify that. Otherwise, the Xoom outclasses the iPad and iPad2 on just about every front.

Well the screen is meant to be better on the iPad (disregarding resolution, contrast is way better, the iPad is more reliable and does not have choppy, juddering animations. Everybody knows how to use an iPhone/iPod so it doesn't seem as complex as using a non Apple tablet. I also think that the kind of person that would buy a tablet has gotten quite used to disregarding the sort of adverts saying "iPad killer"/"Better than iPad" commonly marketed with Galaxy Tabs and those other cheap chinese knockoffs of the iPad running a phone OS (1.6-2.2) and is probably quite wary about them. Also, its usually stated that this is the first proper Android tablet and reviews have pretty much all stated that it's unfinished in its current state and has some build quality issues right now. That and it's actually priced MORE than an iPad, which is insane.
