Android 3.0 "Honeycomb" Looks Spectacularly Sweet: Just a few weeks after the release of the Nexus S and Android 2.3 "Gingerbread", Google officially previewed today Android 3.0 "Honeycomb" at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada. This version of Android is created from the ground up for devices with bigger screen sizes, specifically tablet computers.

Equipped with a fresh, immensely virtual and holographic user interface, Android 3.0 aims to polish the whole user experience. It features home screen customization that offers a new 3D experience and redesigned widgets, which are said to be richer and more interactive. The web browser of Android 3.0 will now include tabbed browsing, form auto-fill, Google Chrome bookmarks syncing, and incognito mode. Existing features of Android such as refined multi-tasking, elegant notifications, and access to over 100,000 apps will be best experienced using Honeycomb.

Here is a sneak peek of Android 3.0 "Honeycomb":

Based on watching the video, Android 3.0 looks spectacularly promising and is filled with exciting and innovative features. I believe it could easily beat the latest version of Apple's iOS, and it is a key to stopping iPad's momentum. Although Google has done a great job of developing Android 3.0, the hardware manufacturers will need to step up their game and show us some powerful but affordable Android-powered tablet computers to be able to really compete with the immensely popular iPad.

What do you think about Android 3.0? Will Android someday dominate the tablet market like it does on the smartphone space? You may share with us your thoughts via comment.

  1. if they can keep the price point BELOW that of the iPad. when companies like Samsung releases an 800.00+ android pad I think that someone needs to rethink their strategy against Apple. I think that for pads to be successful, they need to be on average under 400.00. once you start flying past that price point it becomes less and less viable for mass consumption.
