Awesome so far, but lack of apps..
Kind of surprised how many apps are not compatible with the Galaxy Tab 10.1.
No HBOGo, SiriusXM, Xfinity. Google Voice (which I listed in an earlier thread). I am sure there are more. Feel free to list here.

I'm sure the answer is yes, but does Netflix work with the iPad2?
Because between that, HBO GO, & I even saw someone complaining that slingbox won't work, it makes Honeycomb look bad. When my Galaxy Tab gets here, I'm sure my friend with an iPad2 will mock me that I can't use those options.

We just need to start bombarding developers with nice emails letting them know that we want their app to be honeycomb compatible. Unless they hear from us and they see a good number of honeycomb table sales they will not do anything. They need to see that the market is there and we are eagerly waiting.

HBO go is easy enough... Just set up a second browser like dolphin mini or dolphin HD and set it to fullscreen and set plug ins for always on. Then set HBO GO. It's HBO. Anywhere. as your homepage. Not as good as an app but it plays back well enough until we get app support.
Netflix...you can always use play on but yeah that one hurts.
When your ipad buddy gets froggy just go to youtube.com and point out that you can watch EVERY video not just the ones optimized for mobile lol.

Stick with it, even maybe get an ipad2 from Target to try it out. 90 day return policy, no restocking fee.
I went 7" Tab, to the xoom,to the ipad2, now to the transformer. The ipad wore off on me in a pretty short time. Xooms display was meh.
I think the improvements in honeycomb are already significant.

I agree, I've seen a huge difference in honeycomb already since when the Xoom first released. I had a 3g xoom, then a wifi xoom then a transformer. I sold my transformer about a month ago in anticipation of the 10.1 and I've been stuck with only my 7 inch galaxy tab to use (it's the head unit in my car) and man... I couldn't wait to get another honeycomb tablet. I love this 10.1 though.

Thats the problem with Android, either the apps dont exist or the are so many apps to chose from its hard to tell which one is right for you without trying them all (facebook and twitter anyone?). I am more upset with the lack of updated mac drivers for sync, unavailability of USB adapter yet, and some instability. I am happy 3.1 was finally released (I have the dev version), but I do have issues with apps crashing and needing to restart the tablet to get things like Gmail working after a few days.
