Tablet PC-Motorola Xoom vs Ipad

Real Estate Agent with Shannon Lyon Group

Hello All,

I have been using the Apple Ipad since it came out and I absolutely love it.  It has made me look like a tech expert in the eyes of my clients.  Clients see this and know that I'm not afraid of leveraging technology in my business to get the job done.  

I use it in my listing appointments to show homeowners the comps in the market.  I bought the one that included the data package so I can be online anywhere regardless of wifi.  It is so much faster to start up and easier to use than a laptop.  The battery run time is very long.

I read recently about the Motorola XOOM and was excited to see that it would have a camera on the front and the back.  The camera option on the Ipad would be very nice.  I would like to start using video in my emails and could record it on the Xoom in front of a potential client's home in the background.  I think this would bring a wow factor when I'm trying to get fsbo and expired business.  I could even use it when I'm previewing homes for clients.

I was wondering if anyone out there has heard about

a. the battery run time on the XOOM

b. Ipad2 release and will it contain a camera I can record a short video on

The Shannon Lyon Group primarily specializes in Overland Park, Olathe, Leawood, and Lenexa homes for sale.  We conduct the majority of our real estate business in Johnson County from our office in Leawood, Kansas.  Our team members frequently handle sales for us in other suburbs of the Kansas City Metro Area.

I have been awarded Five Star Customer Service Awards for several years now from KC Magazine.  I have also been in the Kansas City Business Journal Top 25 Agents in Kansas City by sales volume in  2014.  I was #16 in 2014.  These awards are great recognition, however, all I want is my clients to award me with referrals.  I feel the best award I can get is #1 Real Estate Agent Award from every client I work with.  If I exceed all of my clients expectations, that is good enough for me.

iPad2 is supposed to have a front and rear facing camera. Scheduled to come out in April. Not enough real info on the Xoom, which could be the first real competition for the iPad. Looks like Xoom will be out 1st half of 2011.

HP Slate has camera front and back, Windows 7 operating system and touchscreen. Have you looked at that one - just came out! Got it at NAR in New Orleans - actually ordered it there, was back ordered for a couple of! How big is the screen on the XOOM?

We bought a Xoom and so far like it.  It is nice using it as a wifi hotspot.  The kids love it when we are taking trips.
