Honeycomb : Google’s Android for tablets

After the recent launch of Android 2.3, codenamed Gingerbread, Google is now planning to begin the year 2011 with sweet experience of its latest Android 3.0, Honeycomb. There are several upcoming innovations in the class of smartphones as well as tablets that are expected to run on the latest Honeycomb version of Android. Google’s VP of Engineering, Andy Rubin, who is also in charge of Android development, previewed the Android 3.0 version through prototype Motorola tablet at the recently concluded CES 2011. The Honeycomb version of Android operating system is basically designed for mobiles and tablets. The upgrade version from Android operating system is determined to face the high end competition from iPad 2.

Earlier versions of Android operating system were designed to support mobile phones but, with the launch of Android 3.0, the traditional trend has been given a backseat as the Honeycomb is designed to efficiently support larger screens like tablet devices. This version offers even better resolution on a 10 inches screen. The user interface with Android 3.0 is seen to be reformed with much clear and user friendly experience as it displays shortcuts to specific applications. Even the home screen is perfectly reformed that gives sharp 3D effect.  The Honeycomb features refined soft keyboard that facilitates faster and error free input with repositioning of reshaped keys. The Gmail application interface offers the new look which is similar to iPad. The screen view is improved as it is split in several segments. The inbox is displayed towards right side of the screen and the message is viewed in the left three quarters when the device is switched on horizontal mode. The application gives completely different look in vertical mode. This mode will display the email list on the entire screen.

Along with this, Android 3.0 Honeycomb version offers voice and video calling features with Google Talk application. This allows you to use either of the front or rear mounted cameras. You can also mute your voice as well as mix videos. Along with this, Android Honeycomb is strongly expected to arrive with improvised VoIP features, music streaming, WebM feature along with WebP support. Android 3.0 supports various sensors such as magnetometer, accelerometer, light sensor as well as gyroscope due to which it can efficiently work on low density screens along with even better performance on tablets. It is also designed to feature latest innovations from Google such as Google Maps 5 which offers 3D interface. It is even reliable during offline status. Google Maps 5 for Android 3.0 Honeycomb features an improved caching mechanism over its earlier versions. In case your phone’s battery level is low and you’re connected to a WiFi network, Google Maps will still fetch maps and other details near to your current location. If the area in question has been cached in your phone, you can still get directions and view locations even in case of complete loss of access to mobile connectivity. Additionally, the Android 3.0 operating system is designed to offer access to more than 100,000 applications through Android market along will uninterrupted access to more than 3 million eBooks from Google.

As always, Google features this Android version with multi-tasking functionalities by providing a task switcher button towards the bottom taskbar. With this you can switch to your desired application in just a single click. These can just be taken as a primer of features bundled with Google’s Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system.   We can expect Google to unwrap many more features associated with Honeycomb version by March 2011.
