    Unless they're going to alter the UI for tablets in a future version of Android, then I think we're seeing what we're going to get. Google has stated that they want to have the phone and tablet UI unified as one. I feel what we saw is what we're going to get.

    It doesn't bother me that much, though I do wish I could go landscape on the home screens in ICS and JB. That's just a small nitpick on my part, though.

    So you think a 10 inch tab will see the same system bar at the bottom with those 3 streched buttons... that would be odd

    I suppose it's possible for the larger tablets (10") to still end up being specifically designed as landscape with their current setup for a bit longer, but I'm sure they'll eventually get even the larger tablets' UI unified to be the same as that of the phones and 7" tablets.

    It seems likely that the Xoom will be the first 10" to get JB, so maybe we'll see what happens when that goes down.

    You make a good point. This is why I'm stuck between Nexus 7 and Gtab 2 7.0. I like the tablet feel.

    I've been using a Toshiba Excite 7.7 review unit in portrait mode for the past few days, to kind of emulate the Nexus 7 UI. I've found it surprisingly comfortable, more so than I thought. In fact, as I've turned in landscape while in the launcher, it's actually felt kind of squished.

    That said, I can't imagine them doing the same for 10" tablets. Using a 10" tablet in portrait is just downright uncomfortable.

    From what I've heard JB does have a tablet UI tucked in somewhere, whether its possible to use on the N7 is unknown, but im sure the devs can figure something out.

    Someone was able to emulate the standard tablet UI with jelly bean so I'm sure it's still there.
