    Android v3 - Honeycomb for More than Just Tablets


    Honeycomb lead UI designer, Matias Duarte, said that the Android 3.0 OS is for more than just Tablets, “Tablet was the focus, but the changes we did also free it up to be more flexible for other contexts as well.” He indicated that Google wanted to design an OS that can also handle devices larger than a regular smartphone, something more capable with mobile computing tasks, and something that is more usable in the process. He indicated that most of what the design team wants for Honeycomb is a "work in progress" and that it could evolve into something that goes on far more devices than they can currently envision. He added, "It’s about really eliminating all the barriers to all the different kinds of form factors that people might want to interact with.”

    Tablets, like the Motorola Xoom, might be Google's current focus for Honeycomb, but it looks like they have bigger plans in mind for the future of the OS. Perhaps we will see Honeycomb end up on our refrigerator or toaster soon? Or, maybe even replace the operating system on our current PC's... What do you guys think?
