Honeycomb requirements prove to be false as there is no hardware minimum required
The other day we reported that because of speculation that the Android 3.0 build would require the inclusion of a dual-core handset, no current Android  tablet would be able to use the new software. Luckily, the talk of such a hardware requirement for Honeycomb has turned out to be false. Google's Dan Morrill sent out a tweet that said that there is no minimum processor requirement for Honeycomb, and if there was one, he would know.

Owners of the Samsung Galaxy S can now un-clench and take a deep breath as it would seem apparent that there is nothing standing in the way of your device and Android 3.0.
