Honeycomb - Android3.0 for tablet devices - Google Android


Google will be holding a press event next Wednesday, February 2, at its Mountain View headquarters to show off Android Honeycomb, the company’s tablet-optimized OS.

The stage presentations will begin at 10:00 a.m. PT. Google is calling it the event “A Taste of What’s New from Android.”

What is Android - HoneyComb?

Honeycomb is the next version of the Android platform, designed from the ground up for devices with larger screen sizes, particularly tablets. We’ve spent a lot of time refining the user experience in Honeycomb, and we’ve developed a brand new, truly virtual and holographic user interface. Many of Android’s existing features will really shine on Honeycomb: refined multi-tasking, elegant notifications, access to over 100,000 apps on Android Market, home screen customization with a new 3D experience and redesigned widgets that are richer and more interactive. We’ve also made some powerful upgrades to the web browser, including tabbed browsing, form auto-fill, syncing with your Google Chrome bookmarks, and incognito mode for private browsing.

The Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS will be built for both mobile phones and tablets, but speaking truly as the reports have it will be the first Android version that’ll be built for the tablets specifically. The Honeycomb as we have said will come with an improved user interface, a clear app page and a new email interface, which could resemble the Gmail app for the iPad, where in the landscape mode, the inbox is displayed on the left side of the tablet’s screen while the message occupies the rest of the space on the right. Besides the aforementioned feature there’s a solid belief suggesting that the video chat facility, which may have been missed in the Gingerbread, could find place in the forthcoming Honeycomb.
