Honeycomb: The Future of Tablets

Honeycomb--the name for the forthcoming Android 3.0 mobile operating system, created specifically for tablet computers--has been the subject of a great deal of tech rumor and anticipation ever since it was first announced last year. Well, the wait is over--the following teaser video was released at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week.



Not only is the user interface mouth watering, but the functionality of an operating system designed 100% with tablet computing in mind, is precisely what the mobile tech world has been waiting for!

New Android-based tablets will debut with Honeycomb this season...and keep in mind there won't be just one piece of hardware running this, Honeycomb will be the standard in tablet computer operating systems by the end of 2011.

This important evolution of the Android and tablet landscape will force Apple to up their game or the iPad will fade swiftly. Android tablets already come in all sizes...from slightly larger than smart phones to full iPad size. Also at CES, Motorola teased their XOOM tablet, running Honeycomb it has twice the computing power of the iPad.
