Re: Motorola Xyboard 10.1

I am looking for my first tablet. I am seriously considering the acer A200,except the necessity to use earphones(my opinion).You had given me the appropriate reply in an earlier post today regarding the weak speaker audio. But I am quite smitten with the Moto xyboard in wifi only.Your review and comparisons seem to validate my feelings. I love the design and display.I am not sure its worth 150 more than the acer. I have 2 questions for you. It appears that the ti 1.2 cpu is a newer and better performing cpu than the tegra 2?? Your comparisons seem to indicate as such. Secondly if I transfer photos from a usb flash drive do they go directly into the gallery ( similar to the acer a200), or do I have to hunt for them or use a file manager?I want simpicity, as I am not a techie.
As you mentioned your review of the moto,other reviewers are not as impressed with this tablet, as I have also read.I cannot understand why.My primary useage is emails,web surfing and play basic games in the home. Thank you in advance.

I really (still) like the XYBoard 10.1. Yes, it has a newer and somewhat faster CPU that's noticeably better at playing HD video. If you insert a flash drive, images on the flash drive don't get pulled into Gallery, so you have to use a file manager to access them, which is a bummer. If you copy those images to internal storage, then they'll appear in Gallery. Acer wins points there since items on a flash drive appear in Gallery.
