We have some videos of the first tablet optimized Android operating system, Android 3.0 Honeycomb is official and it is going to end up on a lot of tablet devices, so let’s see it!
The new tablet OS carries a fully new redesigned user interface, one of the first things that you will notice is a sense of harmony within Honeycomb from the unlock swype, that harmony you would want to see on a tablet. Of course, there is a nice 3D-esque multiple homescreen view and new widgets.
The Honeycomb’s homescreen is one of the things that you would like to see. What you get on the top left corner is the Google search tool, it supports both voice or text searches, in the right top corner you will find the Apps menu, the bottom part allows you to quickly access essential apps like Gmail, Google Calendar, YouTube and Contacts. The main part of the screen is occupied by widgets, photos and contacts. On the bottom part, you will see a back, home and tab buttons, your Wi-Fi network and a battery meter on the right.
Browser is the main keyword for every tablet device, the new Android 3.0 browser demo showed up to four tabs, but it seems tablets with Honeycomb will be able to handle a more content without a hitch. The interface is very Chrome like, and may be the browser itself is some version of the Chrome OS browser adapted for tablets. The onscreen keyboard is big and nicely spaced.
