Kevin and I kicked off MobileTechRoundup show #234 with a discussion of the Apple iPad 2 and my plans to get one. If you read my iPad hunt post you can see that best laid plans don't always work out. We both tested out the Motorola Xoom and are not pleased with the Android 3.0 experience at this time. Kevin had a great post on GigaOM about tablet pricing that we closed out our tablet section with. We then talked about Windows Phone 7 and our frustrations and thoughts regarding the Nokia $1 billion payment.
