    One of the major deciding points for me getting an Android tablet is can I access and fully use SkyDrive and MS Office Web Apps.

    With a Windows Live ID, I have 25g of free storage called SkyDrive. Also with SkyDrive I can create, edit, view, and share Office Documents (Word, Excel, Powerpoint, OneNote) thru a web browser and stored in my SkyDrive.

    Does anyone know if Android will be able to support skyDrive thru there web browser by the time android 3.0 is released?

    As apple would say, there's an App for that ! Try Android SMEStorage. It let's you work with SkyDrive files direct from the phone. You need an account at SMEStorage.com though.

    SMEStorage has an app now but it seems glitchy to me.

    I am able to use my skydrive through the phone's browser, skydrive.live dot com..............

    I guess I can't upload files from the phone though.. it only does 1/2 of what I was expecting.

    Selecting "PC version" at the bottom of the page shows you a more complete page. Perhaps upload is possible there?

    SkyDrive Browser seems to be quite useful for management of your skydrive. You can download and upload files easily, picture quality when you view them from the interface seems to suffer though, even when the file is still on your tablet. Other than that seems a solid app.
