See Android’s Honeycomb Tablet OS in Action

OK, you’ve seen the Honeycomb promo video, as well as the upcoming dual-core 1GHz Tegra 2 powered Motorola XOOM tablet. Now, have a look at this hands-on demo of XOOM running Honeycomb live at today’s Google event (full video below). Personally, I think the UI looks grown-up and more advanced compared to what iOS currently offers, though it may not be as easy to grasp for the uninitiated or the less tech-savvy (I don’t imagine too many toddlers using this). The widgets, workspaces, and notifications are also a nice touch to stay organized and keep in the know. Tells us what you think. Does Google have a winner here with Android Honeycomb or will the iPad continue to reign supreme? FYI, Google today also launched the Android Market web store, complete with search and over-the-air app installs to your devices.
