i like motorola but they lock down their phones its soooooooo annoying. they have original design, great engineers, probably the best radio, pretty ok tech wise but they simply suck at developer support and their marketing is a joke. how they can make 4 razrs in a span of 1 year is attrocious. razr razr maxx droid 4 or whatever it is called and now razr maxx hd? seriously? motorola. unlock the bootloaders you ass. i want to mod the xyboard!!!!! and change that name to xoom 2. what the heck is a xyboard. jeez

i think so. for portability sake 8-9 inches is perfect. 7 is too small. 10 is too big
