The most recent statement comes from market publication TechRadar UK. In keeping with the sweets-themed naming conventions, this particular Operating system will follow Cupcake, Eclair, Froyo and Gingerbread in the Google Android evolutionary march.
Gingerbread, rumored to be arriving this fall, is the codename for Google android 3., an excellent, high-end fork of the Operating system designed for gadgets like tablets and superphones. It’ll probably start off moving out on gadgets such as the Google/Verizon tablet expected in outlet stores this holiday season.
Honeycomb may be a 3.1 or 3.2 version of the Operating system; it seems unlikely to us that a 4.0 os would be in the functions while the 2.2 version has not yet designed it to all gadgets. A number of sources are stating this build might be exclusively for tablets, an increasing segment of the cellular devices industry.
Especially in an iPad-saturated gizmo marketplace, we have been somewhat anxiously waiting for the release of several Android-based tablets. The Dell Streak jumped onto industry a week ago by having a $300 price tag, a 5-inch display and an Google android 1.6 Operating system. But we have observed other exciting prototypes that run Flash and make best use of the Android platform, as well.
And as Apple/Android competition in the tablet market escalates, we expect to have that tablet products will improve in quality, reduction in price and increase in units sold. In reality, they might even be outselling netbooks within a couple of short years.
We have contacted Google about Honeycomb facts, such as version numbers and launch dates, but representatives won’t comment on Honeycomb at the moment; we will update you when we have confirmation on any points of interest.
What is your opinion regarding an Android OS designed specifically for additional powerful but still portable gadgets like tablets? Let us know your views and speculations in the comments.
