Have you actually used the device? Honeycomb is far superior to any other Android OS currently available. Check. Hardware is impressive. Check. Apps (specifically designed for Honeycomb). Well, lets just say that they're coming. On to the display. Certainly it has the highest resolution (among current tablets), but its not equal in pixel density and thus the colors don't exactly reproduce as well as they do on the iPad. Moreover, though the hardware specs are good, it is not without some drawbacks: it's heavier and thicker than the iPad (1 or 2); the power button and the speakers could have benefited from better placement, and the cameras, despite the higher megapixel count, do not take great shots; video-conferencing is also blurry and jerky. I don't say this from reading a review. I have actually used the device. I also currently own/use a Droid X. That said, the few things that people knock Apple for, such as the lack of widgets, are somewhat over-rated. I have four widgets on my Droid X and, frankly, other than the fact that they display certain info without the need to click on an app, the overall function isn't much different than an app, because most of the critical things I need to do still require me to click on the widget. Scrollable widgets are nice, though I have used few and few are well designed.
Most important, other than a few critical Google apps, such as Google Maps, few apps in the Android market can compete with the quality of those in the App Store, and there are almost zero third-party apps designed specifically for Honeycomb. A tablet without apps is like a performer without an act. Oh, I'm sure the apps will come, but they'll be behind by a year and probably lower in quality. App developers are not entirely happy with the Android Market and few, if any, are making money. This leads to less quality apps and fewer apps overall. Moto also needs a better strategy in regard to pricing and availability (i.e., no Wi-Fi- only or GSM versions available yet and not concrete date/s for when). Having only a VZW version to compete against a WiFi, CDMA, and GSM version, and lower price is poor planning at best and terrible strategy at worse. As to Honeycomb, it is better than the other Android operating systems, but that's about it. It's still not as refined, polished, or as smooth as iOS. It does handle notifications better and multitask more elegantly, but that's about it. It has some stability issue and some quirks. It feels like an OS trying to do too much and, thus, comes off as half-baked or rushed.
