Telstra and Optus are both selling the 3G version on contract, but if you want a no contract experience, the Motorola Xoom Wi-Fi Android tablet goes on sale in Australia today for $689.
Android tablets are great for entertainment: they work with Flash, they offer a huge and open market of free and paid apps, and you can set one up easily without needing to hook into a computer. The one thing you shouldn’t do? Buy one the second it hits the market.
Android Honeycomb 3.1’s a small but totally excellent update for Android tablets. A slightly smoother interface is packaged with two substantial features: improved flash performance (it’s really, really better!) and USB device compatibility (like a real computer!).
