Finally able to take screenshots on Motorola Xoom and Droid 2

I read somewhere that this is coming soon in a future Android update. However, until then there is a workaround through the Android SDK and without Rooting your devices. I have been playing with these steps for a couple of days with no luck, until this morning when I discovered that I also needed to download USB drivers from the MOTODEV site.

Best of luck and here’s my very first screen shot from my Motorola Xoom:
