Testing Honeycomb

Lately there had been news that there were only few (100 or else) native honeycomb apps and there were only 100k or less Motorola Xoom released so far. Thanks to Google for not playing nice to the devs (remember G1 dev phone? where is our dev tablet?)

I still love Android but this is madness, first Xoom is only released on few countries (US and Canada, and ?) the rest of the developers on the world are treated like they dont exist, this was okay with G1/Android 1.0 but i mean its Android 3.0 and there are tones of good developers outside these countries that is waiting to bring their app to tablet form.

Wait there's the emulator, the emulator is so slow (did adjust the memory, heapsize, launched at terminal) but its just not fun working on it.

So now i'll wait for a honeycomb tablet to release here in Hong Kong (probably ill get an asus eee transformer) before i continue with my android stuff. Probably ill just do some node.js or php zend stuff in the meanwhile.

To end this, the number of apps released for the honeycomb tablets vs the days honeycomb is released (in numbers) is just so bad. Google should call the devs to help them like they did with Android 1.0 then alienating them.
