    Where to start? There are many problems with honeycomb since it is built on a preview. Probably the biggest drawback is that it runs slow. Then you have all sorts of compatibility issues with apps and what not. It is fun to try out but if you want a daily driver it is not the best one out there (although some run it and don't mind).

    Here is a good alternative if you are after the look but want something more stable http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...comb-gui-any-rom-stock-froyo-gingerbread.html

    personally i would recommend you do not update to honeycomb. its very very laggy imho. most apps work in v4.2, so thats not a problem anymore, its just sluggish since its based off a preview build. wait for a more stable one to come out and use cm7 in the meantime. its really good, has a lot of tablet features. can be overclocked to 1.1GHz. the guy who came up with the overclock, released a version of cm7 which enables video playback too which was the only really complaint against cm7. lag free.

    you can make it look like honeycomb

    but if thats not enough and you really really want to try out honeycomb, i suggest you get one of those sd card versions.

    I also recommend don't updating to honeycomb ! Because it may make your tablet pc run more slowly !
