Tablets are like a hot cupcake, everyone wish to have one and enjoy the delicious of it. So do I, as it becomes more and more popular, I wish to get myself a honeycomb tablet too. Since the urge has came, I searched around and found some reviews which good to see for someone who want to get a honeycomb tablet. I choose Asus Eee Pad Transformer and Acer Iconia Tab as comparison targets in this entry.
The reason to choose Acer Iconia Tab and Asus Eee Pad Transformer is because they are quality honeycomb tablets with lower price comparing to pricy Motorola Xoom.

The specification between both tablets are very similar but Asus has some new idea on the keyboard dock which i think help him to win more scores in this fight.

Asus Eee Pad Transformer
To those who wanted to get a tablet especially android tablet, I’ll personally recommend you to wait. Why? It is because Google going to release Android Sandwich Ice cream very soon, should be end of this year where Ice cream is the combination of Gingerbread and Honeycomb. If you own a gingerbread phone, you may also experience Honeycomb very soon with Ice cream update. If you do not have a Android phone and look for android tablet, Asus Eee Pad is a valuable tablet to try.
I would wait until Sandwich Ice cream release and check on review before buying any tablets. I wish to see what’s new in Ice cream comparing iOS then only decide to go with Android or Apple tablets. Be patient!!!
