1. The innovation leaders in the new Android generation
Like PCs, most Android devices are indistinguishable from each other beyond cosmetic differences. But with the Android "Honeycomb" 3.0 OS due this spring, along with a new generation of Android smartphones and tablets based on it, a few devices stand out for their innovation and could give the iPhone and iPad strong competition.
Keep in mind that all these products are not yet shipping, so the reality may not match the expectations set by their brief, controlled appearances at the Consumer Electronics Show this week.
