Gmail charged as the worst offender.

Android tablets are expected to become the leading devices on the market by 2015, taking over from iPad's leading sales, according to IDC.

However, ZDNet says Android Honeycomb for tablets didn't cope well when it was first launched, often crashing before eventually getting stabilised by Google. Now, history seems to be repeating itself with Honeycomb's successor, Ice Cream Sandwich.

Results show that Google apps will crash at least two-three times a day when using Android ICS-powered tablet, the ASUS Transformer Prime.

It's hardly the kind of experience users will be wanting when using the tablet's quad-core power, though it seems the blame can't be attributed to ASUS, as the Google fault runs on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 too.

Additionally, Gmail is highlighted as the worst kind of Google offering, crashing the most out of others, ejecting the user to the home screen.

Meanwhile, the Chrome Beta browser, Google+ and Google Voice are also noted as  being riddled with errors.
