Xoom vs. iPad2: Business Insider’s Chart of the Day

Business Insiders Chart of the Day compares Motorola’s Xoom to Apple’s iPad2.

From the reader comments:

Intentionally or not, the author curiously didn’t mention half a dozen hardware features that the iPad 2 misses or is inferior. Among them:

    – SD Card for expandable storage (Xoom has it built in, iPad 2 no)
    – USB port (Xoom has it built in, iPad 2 needs a separate connector)
    – HDMI output (Xoom has it built in, iPad 2 needs a separate connector)
    – RAM Memory (XOOM 1Gb vs 512Mb iPad 2)

Some food for thought.
