    I just bought a viewsonic 10" tablet with android 2.0 and am shocked at the lack of apps available. I naievely thought it would have the same range as my android phone. Gotta say im pretty darned disappointed. Its hard to support non apple products when theandroid apps are so limited. am i missing something? Perhaps not searching properly?

    What is honeycomb? IS THIS THE OS or the brand oof the hardware? Also, is 2 the most up to date android os for the tablet? If not, where can i upgrade it?

    Honeycomb is the OS, and it is available in a Alpha version for the gtablet. Please read the stickies about the gtablet to see how to get access to the full market, there are 200,000 apps available.
