We’ve been bringing you information about the next Android operating system, dubbed Honeycomb, for a while now and have already posted news from CES 2011 on various new tablets which will be running on the new 3.0 OS, such as the Asus Eee MeMo and a Toshiba 10-inch tablet among others.
We had also heard that Honeycomb would be targeted specifically at tablet devices and now Tim Stevens over on Engadget, sourced from Android Developers via YouTube, tells us of a video (which you can see below this story) that seems to show this especially as during the video the words “Entirely for Tablet” are clearly shown. Stevens notes that there’s a lot that impresses about the UI and that it looks very different from the usual Android.
Also, if you use the Gmail app on an iPad the one on Honeycomb will be very familiar. Sascha Segan over on PCMag also reports on Honeycomb and notes that along with the possibility of it needing to use a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor it’s possible that a screen resolution of 1280 x 720 could also be necessary.
The report also confirms that the Motorola tablet, (thought to be called Xoom), will be the first tablet available running on Honeycomb. What are your thoughts on Android 3.0, Honeycomb? Why not send us your comments to let us know.
