I like Samsung colors. Blacks are true black and somehow, the colors look more vivid, stronger. Not saying better, but different.
One of the reasons why I skipped the Xoom, besides I don't want a Data Plan, I already have a cellphone with that.
Xoom (both 1 and 2) has a darker display than Galaxy Tab, that's true.
But it's just about the brightness settings.
Samsung has vivid colors, but I don' find them natural/realistic looking.
Samsungs have 3 or 4 settings, such as (don't have it in front of me, can't check right now) multimedia or natural. Never found the right one for me...
Re. data plan: I'm juggling 5 SIMs for now. German Telekom allows for 2 additional SIMs without additional costs.
I try to limit myself to those 5 SIMs. But if I have one available (Xoom 1 going into Xoom 2), I absolutely prefer 3G models over WiFi-only.
Some tablets still bundle GPS, which I really want to have in each of my tablets, with 3G. And when traveling I don't want to rely on hotspots. I've got my MiFi, but no SIM for it right now...
