Honeycomb is the name of android's tablet OS. Ice cream sandwich is the next gen OS; supposedly, it'll cover phones, tablets and whatever else is android powered.
I've got a first gen ipad and I think it's great to use. Yes, it's limited, but it's not supposed to be a desktop replacement.
As far as android tablets are concerned, I think it's pointless if you have to hack it to make it usable. Without hacking, you don't get netflix, etc.

Thanks for all y'all's remarks... then, my next question is... can this play the iTunes purchases I have made since Apple has changed their proprietary BS. ??? It seems like a nice unit and if I can bill with it.... I hope...it is a go. then my next usage is music. And also.......????? If it is wifi only, the GPS is useless, since you will be where you will be.... wifi connected only..... right? der!

And now I feel kinda burned having gone for the gTablet a couple of weeks ago. Oh well. Saved $150 i guess!
Netflix app may be gotten via the usual means of googling for it - looks to be reasonably popular ;-)
wait - I did a quality post? When?!?

If I didn't already have one I snag it... great price.
For those of you on the fence and don't want to drink the apple kool-aide, it's a very high-quality device.
As a developer, I have several of the current tablets (ipad 1 & 2, Xoom, Playbook, Touchpad, and a couple different Archos units) and they all have pluses and minuses.
The Xoom has all the basics covered, and there are lots of apps between the two app stores (google's market and amazon's app store). The screen is excellent, it's fast, the chrome-based browser is excellent (and there is firefox and opera you can download), and of course the awesome live backgrounds. The gmail client is the best out there. Period. Amazon and google cloud based streaming as well as pandora work flawlessly on them. Google's is built into the music client, and now video is as well.
This is $200 less than I paid just a few months ago. If you are looking to get an alternative to Apple, this is an awesome deal.
