"Phones far and wide wanted to be the iPhone killer"
I think that was a unnecessary observation. I think that we are already overcome that... iPhone was the phone that made touchscreen popular and that's all, there already pretty much options in the market that offer a lot of different (and better) possibilities.
It's funny how people talk about Nokia in every article.
AnonD-5197, 30 May 2011Nah, they'll just be late as usual with 800MHz single core => slow as hell device.That's too advanced for Nokia. Try 680 MHz single core with 256 Mb RAM. =P

I still don't understand GSMA's aim of reviews.
Listing the features for a device and concluding is not a true review. A true review is to quantify the qualities.
Specially when comes to the tablets. In tablets the OS rules.
HoneyComb is a new platform (to some extent) and the stability, fluidity and the other stuff related to it's core should be challenged and judged. GSMArena team, more accurate, more precise and more technical. OS is more than some features.
This OS is a copy of iOS and it seems they have developed and refined the surface (reserve for the taste of art that for Android is seriously missing)and missed the core, management of resources is as awful as WindowsXP for PCs. The battery drain, generally laggy and poor performance, instead of reach features (Literally).
i want xoom
pik, 27 May 2011i hope you're not serious about thisWell, I guess he's very serious ... So am I ...
iOS smoothness is now a myth. Only the games are missing. Only a fool will pay a fortune for a bunch of (rounded) icons.
pik, 27 May 2011i hope you're not serious about thisWhat he said is true.
sometimes,being the first one,includes some sacrifices that should be made.Motorola xoom,being the first honeycomb tablet has some issues,but I'm sure the future update will fix them.Until then,xoom is still one of the best tablets on the market
Anon, 27 May 2011@GSMArena Reviewers: I'd like you to know that none of the tablets can be charged via USB. ... moreYou can charge the iPad from a USB port, provided it is the USB port of a laptop. I have charged an iPad from a MacBook Pro and I believe it can be charged from the USB ports of other laptops as well. Desktop PCs generally provide less power through their ports than laptops, except for the Macs.

This tablet sucks and the OS is stupid. Honeycomb was rushed into the market and so is this tablet. It's like a baby that's born too soon and have abnormalities. Nokia better do a proper tablet and show these retards how a true tablet is done.
USB ports on laptop/netbook,.. are limited to 0.5 Watts , so if you plug something which need more juice, you burn your computer.
this is why you need to use a charger.
