More 'talked down' recently. Though in fairness, the Motorola Atrix itself gets fairly decent reviews - it's that silly dock that gets a lot of heat.
What gets me is this - the idea isn't even new. Redfly tried it and others, too. And the price and performance each and every time cried, 'buy a laptop instead'.
On the other hand, I do believe eventually it may become more popular, but only when those docks become cross-platform compatible. Imagine HDMI out in phones would only work with a tv set of the same make as the phone...

Could one of the problems with the Xoom be that they released it well before the product was actually ready ?

You have to worry about a company that thinks it's acceptable to release a tablet with an SD card slot that they still can't make work more than a month after release.
