    Got the XOOM and so far happy with it. Carried it on our Round New Zealand tour and it worked a treat. Received an update to the operating system (android 3.1) that increases the XOOM's functionality (now allows use of the sd card slot as well the micro usb).

    Happy to answer any questions.

    You may not get access to the android market with a Chinese import as that is only available to licensed versions of Android. There are ways around it - but it involves a bit of effort.

    However, there are other non official android markets and direct download of apps which may be enough.

    I use a Kindle - which is brilliant in the bright light - but is basically a read-only device.

    Any ideas?

    What about a pad of paper, held in place in a clipboard, and a ball-point pen?


    Just a thought........

    you'd be looking for a device with a transflective screen which does not rely on a backlight - these work well in full light conditions.

    Gecko make screen protectors for most devices on the market, the non reflective one does a pretty good job on my iPad, I assume it'll be the same regardless of your device, why not try finding something like that for your smartphone before you go to the expense of a new device?
