Quick background... So I'm a former iPhone owner. Now I've got an HTC EVO 4G (bought it in January) and I'm very happy with it. Great phone. Much better screen than my old iPhone. Amazing navigation. Overall an excellent phone. And onto my story... I originally bought this phone because I work 24 hr shifts on an ambulance. I wanted something with a bigger screen for browsing the internet. Well now I want something even bigger. So I've been looking into the different tablet options out there. It's basically come down to two choices. The Motorola Xoom or iPad 2. I've noticed a few things and it's raised a few questions. The Xoom is obviously the option for expandability. But I'm literally only buying this for internet browsing and watching movies. Of course I'll DL a bunch of apps and play the occasional game, but movies and the internet are my primary reasons for considering this purchase. With that said, does one have any obvious benefit over the other? Also, the plans seem very limited in their data cap each month! Would I be able to use my EVO (unlimited everything in my contract) as a mobile hotspot and not be charged data minutes (not sure if that was the right terminology) towards the iPad or Xoom contract? I suppose I'm asking which device gets charged the data usage. Because I think the data cap for the basic tablet package is like a gig a month. I'd easily go over that... And finally, which has the better performance? I couldn't tell with my limited experience at Bestbuy. It seems like both sides claim theirs is faster than the other... PLEASE post anything else I might be missing from this comparison or things I should be considering. I'm expecting this place to lean in favor of the iPad obviously.
