Yesterday Google Released a Preview of its Honeycomb Android 3.0 tablet operating system designed specifically for tablets.
I love tablets that run on the Android platform! I bought a very cheap one generic from China just to play with over the holidays; the potential with Android tablets is amazing. The biggest reason for me liking Android tablets over Apple iPads is the cost. Tablets running the Android OS will be in the price range of $100 - $400 dollars. Compared to iPads in the range of $500 - $650 dollars.
Additionally, Android tablets will allow the owner to configure it more to their liking, so you won't have to worry about being locked into the default options as with the iPad. The Android version of Apples App store is the App Market that has thousands of application, which developers say is more developer friendly that Apple is.
