I have a question that I hope you can answer if not please do a crowdsource or hit me a reply cause I got to know - why do you guys hate on honeycomb so much? This stems from last Thursday's TNT show where the guest started hating on honeycomb and the resident Android expert Jason joined in. I have used honeycomb 3.2 for the past month and I have no problem with it but every where I turn I read some "expert" saying its just horrible and ios is sooo much better. What exactly makes it so horrible? Don't you have to get accustomed to all operating systems? Just curious please let me know.

Love the show, hate the hate.

  • Just reviewed the video +Jason Howell and you are correct, its just that a lot of tech journalist wants android tablets to be different to the ipad yet complain when it is and say "its not like the ipad". For me Honeycomb works and I guess thats what's important. Granted when I bought my Iconia tab A500 a month ago I was updated to 3.1 then 3.2 in the same day, so I haven't experienced all the problems that many people did.
