The recently concluded Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas provided a perfect platform for Google to showcase its latest operation platform Android 3.0. Better known as Honeycomb, it is designed specifically for devices with larger interfaces particularly tablets.
According to Google, Honeycomb will redefine the user experience, thanks to its new, truly virtual and holographic user interface. And not only that, this latest version of Android comes up with many other features that include refined multi-tasking, elegant notifications, access to over 100,000 apps on Android Market, home screen customization with a new 3D experience and richer and more interactive widgets. Android 3.0 also features an upgraded web browser that supports tabbed browsing, form auto-fill capabilities, incognito mode for private browsing and an auto-sync facility with your Google chrome bookmarks. The new OS gives access to over 3 million Google eBooks and to Google Talk that empowers you to video and voice chat with any other Google Talk enabled device such as PC, tablet or a Smartphone.
While we wait for some more specifications about the latest platform from Google, I must say that the first looks of the operating system are impressive. However, there is no any official news yet on the upgrading of Android Market place to support Android 3.0.
Android 3.0 will be in direct competition with other platforms such as Apple IOS 4 and the new BlackBerry QNX Operating System. After a slow start in 2008, the Android Operating System revolutionized the Smartphones market in 2010. Google would expect a similar performance from Android 3.0. All signs indicate that 2011 will again be an exciting year for Tablets. While these platforms battle for supremacy, the real winner will obviously be the consumer, with a plethora of tablet options to choose from, and each stuffed with never-like-before features.
So, what do you think about the latest Android OS from Google, do let us know.
