Default Android 3.1 Tested and Found Worthy

"Put simply, Android 3.1 makes Honeycomb feel like a finished product, making it a much more worthy competitor to iOS on the iPad. It's more stable, provides increased usability with expandable widgets, and lets you access more recently used apps than before. We also appreciate the improved web browsing and Flash performance. And with the introduction of movie rentals, the Android Market is finally starting to catch up to iTunes in terms of multimedia content. The Android Market still needs a lot more apps, but Android 3.1 provides a much better foundation for anyone considering a Google-powered tablet than its predecessor."

Laptop Magazine gives Honeycomb 3.1 a pretty thorough evaluation and comes to the conclusion that 3.1 is a mature, ready-for-prime-time tablet OS. Is this the OS that will not only push Android into the tablet mainstream, but give iOS a run for its money? Only time will tell, but the future is looking bright for the little green guy in his bumblebee suit.

This is a statement you don't ever hear about Apple. When will Google and Microsoft get it. Putting something out into the market that is not polished when your are number 2 just does not cut it. You always want your users to have a first rate experience from your product, without it you simply are punching your self in the face. So frustrating.

Default apps in the coming year

Google will give programmers monetary incentive to write apps (better royalty rates) and lots of apps will be written.

It isn't important for Android to match the number of Apple apps, just that the most popular ones are available for Android
