    Looks like Honeycomb (Android 3.0) is way more tablet friendly then thought. Has soft function keys built into the OS UI. Maybe this generation of tablets will be much more car infotainment friendly.

    This Ces post is promising. Assuming that headunit or others like it are up to par in quality could be another Android install option intead of a tablet

    Based on what I saw from the various CES coverage there are many tablets in the making that will be out shortly. The main tablet talk seemed to be about Andriod's honeycomb which is specifically geared to tablets. What's most exciting was the some of the headunit based Andriod devices as per my prior post as well as offerings from Parrot. The only issue with going the Parrot route is that the implementation will not be full blown Andriod as we know it, with no Android Market support. A thumbs down for me.

    The Galaxy Tab is currently on sale here in Canada so I went our this weekend and got one. My idea was to just tether my iPhone's internet using MyWi however, the Tab just refused to see the network. I did some research and found out that Android devices cannot connect to ad hoc networks. It's an issue that the Google team is aware of but just haven't fixed. Aparently there is a way to patch this issue with a custom rom and some hacked magic, but can't see why a customer should have to do this. Funny thing is the wifi tethering feature included on Android devices actually also broadcasts an ad hoc network. Hopefully, Google fixed this for the Android 3.0 release as they can't expect that people buying tablets won't want to tether their data from another device.

    So back to the store with Tab until issue is handled by Google.

    See that looks better in the car then a iPad. Its the perfect size. You probably dont need special hardware either to connect it to the radio. Just a simply RCA to Headphone cable.

    That's interesting. It sounds like carriers/manufacturers' implementation of wireless tethering may be using ad-hoc instead of infrastructure (access point) so they can have better control over the tethering, like limiting it to 5 or 8 devices (assuming ad-hoc allows that, I may be wrong).

    Wireless Tether on my Android phone uses infrastructure (access point) so that's at least good news for those wanting to tether Galaxy Tab with their rooted Android phones.
