The one device considered to be the true Android bargain (at this time) is the Viewsonic Gtablet. Just like the Xoom, when it was released last fall it had several issues (mainly software, but a couple hardware as well). But the Gtablet on the market now has been improved to the point that at $300, it might be the best Android tablet for the money.
to be honest I think most people are taking a "Wait and see" and plus the getting in bed with Verizon are the two biggest reasons it wasn't a runnaway hit.
Also the low sales didn't take into account the wifi only version that just came out, either.
we'll see, I think if Moto reintroduces the public to the Xoom especially it's Wifi only version, it still can have a hit on it's hands, its hardware is just gorgous.
