If you’re a regular user of Google Voice and have a Honeycomb tablet, you might want to check out a tip from Computerworld to get the Android phone version of the app working on your tablet. The gist is that the updated Google Voice phone app has tablet-friendly features, but is not yet officially deemed compatible with tablets in the Android Market, so it won’t be visible as a direct download for Honeycomb tablets. However, you can either extract the APK yourself from an Android phone using a file manager like Astro, or you can directly download the APK via a link in the Computerworld post. Whichever way you choose to install the APK on your Honeycomb tablet of choice, once it’s there, it should work as it does on an Android phone. There’s even a straightforward home-screen widget that can be used to monitor Google Voice texts.

Be forewarned, though, that there may be a few glitches here and there since the app is not yet tablet-ready, so keep an eye out for that. Otherwise, enjoy some early tablet access to Google Voice!
