But with the upcoming release of the Motorola Xoom, the Asus Eee Pad, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v and the LG G slate in Australia, there seems to be a flood of Android Honeycomb devices coming out. I feel like a kid in a sweetshop, and I don’t know which one to get. I’m also unsure whether to get a 3G one or a Wi-Fi only model. Can you tether them to a Android phone? Please help! Thanks, Spoilt for Choice
