First Look At Android 3.0 Honeycomb, Or Android For Tablets

Here’s a glimpse at Android 3.0 Honeycomb, as previewed earlier today at the Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas. The goodies include:

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 customisation 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.

Honeycomb also features the latest Google Mobile innovations including Google Maps 5 with 3D interactions and offline reliability, access to over 3 million Google eBooks, and Google Talk, which now allows you to video and voice chat with any other Google Talk enabled device (PC, tablet, etc).

Integration with Google Talk sounds particularly spicy, but on a whole it looks like an interesting take on the tablet. Let’s hear your thoughts in the comments.

    I do really like it though. Would love to get an android tablet with it just because it isn’t an iPad.
