Tablet Version of Android Most Likely Launching with Honeycomb Release in 2011

android tablet prototype at d dive into mobile

Monday night, Google’s Andy Rubin, demonstrated a prototype Android tablet to the D: Dive Into Mobile audience. As you can see in the video below, the tablet version of Android (Honeycomb build) is drastically different than the mobile version we’re accustomed to. It’s much more tablet-friendly you can say… sporting larger icons, a tablet optimized interface (I see that it shares some of the UI elements of Chrome OS), and applications that “express” themselves differently when running on a tablet (from what Rubin explained, it sounds like apps available on Android will be able to dynamically change according to the type of device that’s running them — very different than the iPhone, iPad model). Hardware-wise, all we know is that it has been designed by Motorola and is equipped with a dual-core NVIDIA processor. [via]
