Overall, Android 3.0 is powerful and fast. It looks closer to what you'd expect in the modern computing age and not as much like an enlarged version of the smartphone operating system. A few problems still exist, but they are relatively easy to overlook. quote

Google's Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) OS will appear on many tablets this year, but it needs a more vibrant developer community and better app store to compete with Apple in the tablet space.

The first batch of Honeycomb slates may have some wrinkles – the missing Flash and paucity of video codec support being two examples – but 2011 definitely looks to be the year that Android tablets will come of age.

A vast improvement over previous versions of Android for tablets, but the browser needs a bit of improving and there need to be more apps.

When it comes down to it Android 3.0 is a strong contender against iOS. I definitely like how Google realized that a tablet demands a different experience than a phone, and didn't just throw Gingerbread on their tablets. All in all, Honeycomb devices are probably meant for the nerdier people....

I do not like its lack of a good browser and openness. I think that the most importent application on any device is the browser.

This review based on 3.2 which contained a lot of speed and stability improvements. Since Honeycomb source hasn't been released and never will, openness isn't rated.
