Little things like work, money, and travel tend to get in the way of fun stuff. If that weren't the case, maybe you would have attended a Google event yesterday in which the search Goliath demonstrated its much anticipated Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) operating system. We've seen some teaser videos of this potentially awesome OS before, but this is the first time Google has gone and gave an in-depth demo. Don't feel bad, we weren't in attendance either, but like you, we can watch the entire thing online. That's right, Google went and posted a high quality video of the event -- all 52 minutes and 55 seconds of it -- to YouTube, which means you can catch it on your extended lunch break and still have...

Well, it's not like Google had an awful lot to hide, but at least it's official now. The world has been wondering what exactly the future of Android would hold, and with Mobile World Congress around the corner, everyone was expecting an announcement by mid-February at the latest. Turns out Google let us in on a secret earlier than expected, by holding their own Android Event today on the West Coast. Honeycomb was officially announced today, and while some have wondered if Android 2.4 would be Honeycomb, it's now confirmed that Android 3.0 will be the version to hold that label. The new version of the operating system was introduced alongside of the new Android Market Website, which also opened... Read more...
Although it's known that the Motorola Xoom will launch very soon with Honeycomb, Android 3.0, there's been no detailed unveiled of the new tablet-specific Android version. That will all change on Feb. 2, a date that has been called by some as a sort of "War Manuever" by Google. The reason for that nickname is that Feb. 2 is also the date that Rupert Murdoch and Apple will be unveiling "The Daily," the new iPad-only digital newspaper. At the same time, it's expected that Apple will detail how its new iTunes "push subscription" model will work. However, at the Honeycomb event, which will take place on Wednesday in Mountain View, Google will have hands-on demos of the new Android 3.0 platform. The... Read more...
Can you smell it in the air? It smells like a Honeycomb cooking, otherwise known as Android 3.0, which Google's trying to bake to perfection for the tablet space. The search titan has begun serving up samples of its next-generation OS to allow developers enough time to get acquainted with the new platform. "Today, we are releasing a preview of the Android 3.0 SDK, with non-final APIs and system image, to allow developers to start testing their existing applications on the tablet form-factor and begin getting familiar with the new UI patterns, APIs, and capabilities that will be available in Android 3.0," Google announced in a blog post. In case you haven't been following, Android 3.0 (codenamed... Read more...
T-Mobile has announced a tablet, the LG G-Slate. The device will carry Android 3.0 (Honeycomb), HSPA+, but size, price, and timing weren't mentioned. Because of the vagueness around the tablet, more interesting to some are the videos of the G-Slate, which give us more views of Honeycomb, the first tablet-optimized version of Android. Honeycomb seems ready to make Android tablets truly iPhone competitors, if not killers. The UI and experience are indeed tablet-optimized, and make for a much better tablet (Sorry, Galaxy Tab). Take a look at more Honeycomb videos below; the "T-Mobile® G-Slate with Google, by LG" press release is below, as well. T-Mobile G-Slate by LG Is Set to Launch in the... Read more...
Last night at Digital Experience, Toshiba gave us a closer look at the company's upcoming Android-powered tablet. It looks pretty sweet, with it's 10.1-inch widescreen display. We especially liked that this tablet has a built-in SD card reader as well as a mini USB connection and full-size HDMI and full-size USB ports. Under the hood, you'll find a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 with integrated NVIDIA graphics. Like a few other tablets we've seen at CES this year, Toshiba's tablet is waiting for an official release of Android 3.0 Honeycomb before releasing the tablet. That said, the tablet should be shipping "in the first half of 2011." Check it out in the video below:... Read more...
Honeycomb, or Android 3.0, is to be the first tablet-optimized Android version, and not that much is known about it, although rumors of higher hardware requirements are rumbling. However, Google has gone and posted a teaser video on Honeycomb, pre-CES, so come one, come all, and take a look. The fact that they use the phrase "Built Entirely For Tablet" means, as some have surmised, that you won't see Honeycomb on a smartphone. The video shows that Honeycomb has a revised UI, which carries over many of the changes from Gingerbread, meaning a more polished, professional, and darker look. YouTube gets a major upgrade, and Google Talk includes built-in video calling. Everything looks smooth, and... Read more...
