While confusion over Google products has not been something new, the release of the latest video on Android 3.0 or Honeycomb seems to be the most enlightening one. Some interpretations or misinterpretations about whether it is for tablets only or not may be possible, but there might be some next generation phones with dual core processors which may get the taste of sweet Honeycomb.
The video itself says Android 3.0 or Honeycomb is made entirely for tablets, which, for most of the people, means Android will have two versions, one for tablets and another for smartphones.
The Google video on the Android developers channel has gone into private mode, but it can still be watched on the net through other websites.
Throughout the video, Google keeps talking about how the new OS will be a boon tablets and other tablet specific features time and again. The video continues for an entire minute and it teases the viewers with the features of Android future tablets.
The interface looks enticing enough, and the apps look as if they will allow the users to interact with the widgets, and the most important part is users may use multiple apps at the same time. Practically, it appears the tablet version may work as the larger umbrella of Android whereas the smartphone versions might be subsets of the full version.
Even those who are happy for tablets should realize not all tablets are going to end up with the updates as there are reports only those tablets with dual core ARM processors may run Honeycomb. The news may disappoint those who paid from the heart for their latest Samsung Galaxy Tab.
