At CES 2011, search giant Google gave a preview of the latest version of its operating system Android 3 or Honeycomb, which is designed mainly “for devices with larger screen size, particularly tablets,” said Andy Rubin, the vice president of engineering in a blogpost.
Talking about the features of the platform, he added that it has a new virtual and holographic user interface. Also, its home screen comes with a 3D experience and has redesigned widgets. The web browser includes features such as tabbed browsing, form auto-fill, Google Chrome bookmark syncing, and incognito mode for private browsing.
Honeycomb also features the latest Google Maps 5 with 3D interactions and offline reliability, and access to over 3 million Google ebooks etc.
Google was recently in the news for launching its flagship Android Gingerbread smartphone, Samsung’s Nexus S.
