Andy Rubin on Honeycomb: expect 3D customizable home screens, new interface and much more
In Andy Rubin's own words:
"Honeycomb is the next version of the Android platform, designed from the ground up for devices with larger screen sizes, particularly tablets. We’ve spent a lot of time refining the user experience in Honeycomb, and we’ve developed a brand new, truly virtual and holographic user interface. 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 customization 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)."
All these Google goodies like the new Honeycomb interface, a 3D customizable home screen and a refined multi-tasking sound great to us. Mind, more and more Honeycomb-related news are coming right now, so it's sure we will know much more about it in the coming days. Regardless of that, what's your first impression of Android 3.0?
