    News360 is pretty good for browsing news. I like it better than pulse for tablets

    I don't buy a lot of games, but found a couple that are simply awesome and addictive on the tablet. Plants vs Zombies and Grave Defense HD. Both will keep you hooked for hours.

    Sadly, I think honeycomb + tablets is a little premature in terms of apps that support them.

    For apps I would recommend:
    1. Pulse
    2. Handycalc
    3. xPiano
    4. MoboPlayer
    5. WebSharing

    For Games:
    1. Genesis Chess Beta (try it out, it's the app i've worked on with my brother).
    2. Fruit Ninja
    3. Angry Birds
    4. GuerrillaBob
    5. Dungeon Defenders

    I'd like to add File Manager HD, a file manager made specifically for tabs. It not only looks awesome but has excellent tools. With the LAN connection I never plug my Samsung 10.1 into a PC.

    QuickPic also works great on the tab and Tablet Wallpapers is OK.

    +1 on Mobo Player. Plays avi's perfectly.

    If you are a Twitter user, I'd also recommend TweetComb.

    I don't buy many games but I am enjoying Battleheart and it looks great on the tab.

    For non-games types of applications:
    Evernote
    ezPDF is the fastest PDF viewer I have found for rendering PDF.
    Pure Calendar
    Amazon Kindle App
    ComiXology if you like Comics (lots of free ones available)


    If anyone knows a great calculator application that looks good on tablets I'd appreciate recommendations. :)

    which codec did you install for MoboPlayer?
    did you install movies via the Kies app and let it comvert, or did you just copy and avi (or any other format) to the tablet?
