Android 3.0 Honeycomb: Rumors Say Dual-Core Processor Required

We have recently heard rumors that a dual-core processor is required to run the new Android Honeycomb OS. This means that none of the current tablet PCs will be eligible to update the OS to the new version when it is finally revealed purely because their processor isn’t powerful enough.

We have also heard about the new Motorola tablet that is set to appear at CES 2011 in the next few days. This is the first tablet PC that will be sporting Honeycomb, although there are a few other models that will be able to support it. LG’s rumored laptop will be one of them along with the new Toshiba tablet that was announced today.

According to Sascha Segan’s report over at, the Android Honeycomb tablet OS requires a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor. At this time, the only platform that can support the Cortex-A9 is the NVIDIA Tegra 2, many of the manufacturers are saying that they will move towards this but we will have to wait and see.
