    Long press on screen....widgets, shortcuts, wallpaper, etc...

    Very cool....shows the 5 screens, you drag a widget or app to the screen you want it on...

    adb installed Dropbox to the emulator image running, was able to then install the SnkWallpapers app I have in my SnkBitten Rom (app was from cyanogenmod source and edited...credit given in ROM).

    Yes...turn off automatic rotation in settings and then switch the emulator by pressing ctrl + f11 on your PCs keyboard.....

    The best version of Android isn't even for phones. I'm glad Matias Duarte said that this is the general direction that Android is going in. You know what else Honeycomb would be great for? In car multimedia systems!

    If someone can port it and make apps for it, I would definitely put a tab in my car, right in the dash but also removable, and can see all vehicle diagnostics as well as stereo, and pretty much everything else that the internet could enable for this awesome OS.
