    The title is the question. Do these apps work and if so how dot hey look? Does Dolphin Browser stretch across the screen effectively?

    I am using Launcher Pro and the Honeycomb widgets are scalable and everything is a lot better.

    I've always been a ADW Launcher user - any idea of this would work on there as well?

    Should work fine.

    Thanks guys, but the question was about Angry Birds and Dolphin Browser HD, not launchers. Any insight?

    Oh, wow! Launcher Pro works!

    Fruit Ninja HD is available. I wonder if Rampage is...

    Bought an app off my desktop computer and the Motorola Xoom is already listed in the devices dropdown. How did that happen?

    I really don't understand why anyone would want Dolphin HD on the Xoom when the Honeycomb browser is so nice and already has tabs.

    Because it has the word "Dolphin" in it :)

    Come on folks: What about Angry Birds and other more popular games & apps?

    Come on Love Guru,

    Try Angrybirds, Dolphin, NOVA and some other games!

    Since Honeycomb manages app and media space dynamic like iOS, it will be interesting to see what apps work and do not :)

    Also, can you side-load apps (non-market option should be in settings)?

    Angry Birds looks and plays great.

    My guess is some app issues, considering Honeycomb's apparently new approach to app storage. Par for course.

    No app issues at all yet. Angry birds is freaking awesome, plays and looks fantastic

    Agreed. Angry Birds and Angry Birds Seasons both looks pretty good. I'd be curious to see an HD version though, in order to tell the XOOMs true potential. The standard versions do look good though.

    Other games I've tried:

    MegaJump - Will play, but does a somewhat strange partial screen thing.
    Minisquadron - Won't launch, which really sucks, because I would have loved to play it.
    Slice It! - Plays fine, and full screen looks decent
    Stupid Zombies - Gets stuck at the "GameResort" screen, but sounds is working fine. You can't get to the game screen to play.

    One reason I can think of after playing with the Xoom at lunch is that a different browser would allow you to change the browser agent to "desktop" instead of android or mobile. That way you wouldn't get mobile websites by default. This feature needs to be added to the Honeycomb browser for sure.

    That's what I was thinking. Anyone try Dolphin Browser yet?

    Dolphin does a better job in desktop mode.

    How are people getting Launcher Pro on their new Xoom? I cannot find it in the market on the device and when I try from my PC to send it over, it says it is not compatible.

    Thanks much.

    Angry birds works great. Fruit ninja HD is amazing. Sky Force doesn't work at all.

    Dolphin HD seems much slower than the stock browser.

    Anyone else having issues with the tilt sensor in games?

    Does not work on gtablet either. Several games will not work, including most Gameloft games.
