They're all running Honeycomb - that is two revisions old now.
Granted, they're 10" tablets which is nice, but I'm not sure I'd buy a
new tablet running Honeycomb.   Maybe I'd consider it if an exploit
were still available and a substantial modding community existed, but
even then there is risk as these tablets are old and that modding
community is likely to move on.  (Imagine buying a device BECAUSE it
has known security problems - gotta love this industry).
