Rumors of the successor to Gingerbread (3.0?) called Honeycomb started just a few weeks ago and were confirmed today by Samsung’s head of mobile communications, JK Shin. In a Q&A session today surrounding the launch of their Galaxy Tab, Shin mentioned that Honeycomb would be coming in a new, larger next-gen tablet, possibly next year…
“Moving forward with Honeycomb, that will be used in the next generation tablet as it is specifically optimized for different type of tablet, and will be used on another product only.”
This is the first real confirmation of Honeycomb and as far as we can tell, may be a special OS build just for tablets. Gingerbread was also mentioned as an upgrade for the Samsung Tab, but no time frame was given.
Damn it feels good to be a part of Android. Things get more exciting by the day. Thoughts?
