Best Android tablet apps

Free Honeycomb Android apps to enrich your tablet existence

Google's challenge to the Apple iPad has been boosted with the arrival of its slick Honeycomb 3.0 operating system.

The Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Sony S1 and S2 tablets are all among the devices set to benefit from the tablet-optimized OS, and with the recently announced Honeycomb 3.1 update, there is more to come.

The Android Market is not yet overflowing with apps tailored for larger tablet surroundings, so to kickstart proceedings, we've picked ten apps to show off what the Google tablet OS is capable of.
