Top Motorola Xoom (Honeycomb) Apps

When Google first announced Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) it was clear that this would be the first real iPad competitor. Unfortunately, having now owned a Motorola Xoom for just over a month, I have been left under whelmed with the overall experience. I like the device (like, not love) and the operating system has a lot of potential, however the real killer is the lack of tablet optimised applications and the inability to search for them in the Google Marketplace.

Google have promised that this situation will improve over time, however until it does, I have done my best to put together a list of the top Honeycomb optimised applications. At first glance it looks like a decent list, however when you compare this to the thousands currently available for the iPad, it's actually quite embarrassing that I can list them in a single article.
