    Do any of you guys /gals, play games on your tabs? I have an O.G. Droid so most games won't play on my device. Are there a ton of games that are specialized for the Droid Tablets, or are they just ported conversions from the phone? Thanks everybody.

    Spare Parts works wonders for non tablet sized apps. 3.2 is supposed to render them automatically now but very few I've got haven't been Honeycombed already and Spare Parts works fine on them, haven't had any that are being rendered by 3.2 ( gives an option box at the bottom asking full screen or no ). The only apps I've found just won't work on my Galaxy are phone call type or Verizon specific apps, like acontact, Handcent, NFL mobile, etc

    The Swift Rise And Sad Fall Of The Asus Transformer Prime Android Tablet | TechCrunch

    There is nothing sadder than watching a promising product die early. In the case of the Transformer Prime, interest and hype peaked before the tablet even launched. Then when the tablet finally hit retailers, users and developers quickly discovered locked software and buggy hardware.
    ...
    XDA forum members collectively erupted in rage yesterday after it was discoverd Asus locked down the Prime’s bootloader. Apparently 128 bit encryption is employed to keep owners from accessing key components and flashing new roms and kernels onto the tablet. The Prime is effectively grounded. This move prevents owners from unlocking the full potential of the tablet. Owners are at the complete mercy of Asus for system updates and improvements (like the current GPS and WiFi bugs). So much for Android being “open”.

    More recent news about Transformer Prime...

    "The good news is that while the Transformer Prime launched with Android 3.2, we now know when the update to Android 4 (aka Ice Cream Sandwich) is coming: January 12th (according to the Asus Facebook page). Whether this means Asus is planning to have significant stock in the channel by then, we still don't know. Asus says that they are doing their best "to fulfill the incredible demand."

    ..."the company says it'll release a tool that'll allow you to unlock the Prime's bootloader, though doing so will void the warranty and you'll no longer be able to rent videos from the Android Market. I'm curious to know if third party apps like Netflix and Hulu Plus will stop working, too."

    Good Lord, so I take it, I'm better off purchasing an Ipad 3?
