For that we've hand-picked 15 tablet optimized productivity applications. Check out the list below and feel free to chime in with suggestions of your own in the comments below!

Productivity apps for Honeycomb:

Honeycomb browsers

- Opera Mobile | Free
One of the best alternatives to the stock Honeycomb browser, Opera Mobile supports Adobe Flash and is among the most responsive browsers out there.
This might not be an absolutely essential app, but it brings a brilliant idea – browsing two pages simultaneously.

Honeycomb mind mapping apps

Thinking Space Pro allows you to visually map your thoughts in a simple yet efficient way.

Honeycomb notes apps

- Evernote | Free
Evernote is available for pretty much every platform we can think of and the Honeycomb-enhanced versions brings the same robust note-taking experience with cloud features.
- SpringPad | Free
An alternative to Evernote, SpringPad is a smart note app which offers an offline browser and the widgets to see your notes directly on your homescreen.

Honeycomb office apps

Nicely optimized with tablets, QuickOffice Pro HD justifies its as it's integrated with many other apps like Dropbox for easy access to cloud storage.
- DocumentsToGo | $7.04
The price of DocsToGo has been slashed significantly, and while it lacks in features compared to QuickOffice Pro HD, it still offers most of the features you need for half the price.

Honeycomb back to school apps

- The Elements | $2.99 – still a work in progress

Honeycomb utilities, networking apps

While still a beta, the tethering application is a welcome addition for mobile data-hungry users.
- Dropbox | Free
Probably the best cloud-storage service out there works with Honeycomb tablets and is free.

Honeycomb file managers

- File Expert | Free
File Expert expands on the standard file manager app and allows accessing network storage in a stable and reliable way.
A tablet optimized version of File Manager, the HD version supports compressing, sharing and accessing files.

Honeycomb maps and weather apps:

Holding the sky in your hands has never seemed so realistic. With Google Sky Map you can take your astronomer's aspirations to the next level.
- Google Earth | Free
Google Earth is pretty much a must-have app for every tablet out there.
The application has one of the best interfaces and most trusted sources of weather information. Pair this with a price tag of free, and we see no reason why you wouldn't try it.
