Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS Video Creates a Splash
According to Engadget, despite Google pulling its 3.0 Honeycomb OS video, T-Mobile posted the same video as it announced the T-Mobile G-Slate made by LG. The video showcasing a slate user interface and some Honeycomb features that really stand out and was officially presented by Google through its Jan.6 CES Keynote. The video is now available for all to see and witness:
As you may have noticed, There are some great features presented. multitasking can be all done on one window, unlike say iOS where you have to exit and enter different apps. There will also a lot of customization options available in regards to the UI layout.
Engadget also mentions the 3.0 Honeycomb OS might be exclusive to tablets.
“We heard talk that 3.0 would be exclusively for tablets, as in not for phones, and that looks to be played out with the text “Entirely for Tablet” seen early in the video. Perhaps the best thing to say is that this looks more or less nothing like Android.”
Engadget goes further in depth in regards to each feature added or modified for Honeycomb, but it is great to see tablet-specific features or concentration away from multi-device operating systems. Greater competition in the tablet space should be reflected by innovations such as the OS UIs and more features for the end user.
