Android Honeycomb

The creators of the Android have recently released some great technology devices. The Nexus S and the Android 2.3 have gotten great reviews and feedback. This isn’t it for them, however. Android has recently announced a new interface technology that will be joining Google’s ranks.

Ina Fried, from Mobilized, announced earlier today that Google will be letting everyone learn more in-depth about the new Android 3.0, otherwise known as “Honeycomb,” that is coming out soon.

This event, hosted by Google, will take place 10am – 1pm PT on February 2, 2011. It will last 90 minutes with the remaining time left for demonstrations. Anyone can check it out because it will be streaming live on Youtube here.

Honeycomb is said to be designed for larger screen sizes, especially for the Android Tablets right now. It will probably will not reach smart-phones until later in the future. Honeycomb is really focused on the user’s experience and Google has developed “a brand new, truly virtual and holographic user interface.”

Many of the features from the original Android will still exist, and will even be enhanced through Honeycomb. For example, you will have access to 100,000 apps on the Android Market, refined multi-tasking capabilities, and new 3D technologies for the screen.

Honeycomb will also feature more “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 will also include Google Maps 5, access to 3 million Google eBooks, among other Google applications.

I’m personally excited to watch the event Google will be hosting. I’m sure we will all be amazed with the new Honeycomb interface. I personally can’t wait to try it out!
