Congratulations on being first! I like your avatar. I assume it is an Android version of yourself? You must be quite the hipster!

Honeycomb ftw. Can't wait for a similar version to hit phones. Actually, once google voice hits, I might make a rooted htc flyer my phone. It will be like the good old days when you got to hold a brick up to your face!

thankyou obvious non android lover and author.

honeycomb is sickkk.

author have you heard of marketplace? why would anyone use the stock functions on android when there's better free versions available?

please phone arena please have authors who enjoy the android experience. If this site uses authors who enjoy apple products and praise it why can't we have the same experience with android?

A very thorough walk-through! One of the better ones I've seen.

I really like the new Honeycomb UI for Android. It's very intuitive and easy to use while still retaining all the flexibility of Android. For a "1.0" UI I think the Android team did a pretty darn good job, and I'm sure it will get a lot better very quickly.

I agree with the keyboard--I don't know why they didn't just give a full normal keyboard that uses the shift key for special character and move the special character lock key more out of they way, I keep hitting it. Luckily there are some great keyboards out there for Android.

I think there point about some of the apps is very justified. Why put in a "core app" that is overly minimalistic or doesn't even come close to free apps in the market? As I'm sure some people would like to stick with the basic stock setup--not everyone is an app whore ;)
But you do make a great point about Android--customize it to your liking!

I really hope Google puts in the feature for making mobile phone call, especially when the tablet has the 3G built-in. This will set it apart from iPad, much like what the first Galaxy Tab does. Some telcos allow multiple SIM cards tied to a number, which will allow a 2nd SIM to be used on the tablet and to make calls.

Please take no offense from this comment; I mean none by it and only want to improve the quality of the site. You guys really need to get a new person to narrate the video reviews. Regardless of his product knowledge or status in the organization, he is not the right person to do video reviews due to his speech impediment. It is distracting and makes the reviews unpleasant to view.

Wouldn't agree with you! Not knowing English very well, I find this review quite good.
