No Honeycomb here because there was no time to get it on board. The flyer will by flying into stores worldwide in Q2. No word on price just yet. It’ll be available in WiFi and WiFi + 3G models but WiFi only models won’t be available in the beginning. 3G models don’t come with standard telephony capability but there’s voice Skype / Fring.
