    Agree with you, development of Android app store is a never ending process. Android apps are really amazing! I think Google is following the right approach by constantly keeping attention to its Android platform. This has helped Google to maintain its position in market. The Google Docs apps is one of the useful app which has proved very beneficial for my business. But I think all the other apps which you have listed are also very useful for the users.

    Downloading and installing a wikipedia app right now. Totally forgot about them.
    I don’t really see how a speedtest app can make you more productive. You go somewhere you get on the internet and check the speed to find out that the internet is very slow, then what? It wont make the situation any different. Normally I will find out pretty fast if the internet is slow or not :).

    The social networking apps is the best app I think as it helps me to be connected with my friends. It is the easiest way to get connected with these sites. But other apps which you have listed are also very good. I have been using Google Docs also for sometime and have found it very useful. Wish to get more of such apps from Google this year too!

    I’m planning to buy a WiFi only Honeycomb tablet(say xoom or acer a500). But I don’t have any wifi router now, though I’m planning to buy one later. So, for the moment, how can I download android apps from the android market and install it to my android device?

    I’ve been using Google Docs and Social Networking Apps, it’s very essential for me as I’m always connected to virtual world. Never tried Vlingo Virtual Assistant, is it the same with S Voice (one feature of Samsung Galaxy S3)?

    I see that Google Docs is getting a lot of love here, and for good reason! It is really useful when you can create or edit any document anytime, whether it is on your computer at work or on your phone in the bathroom.
