52 High Quality Pictures of Android 3.0 (Honeycomb)

Last night we had the chance to spend a significant amount of time with the new Android 3.0 SDK preview and decided to grab as many screenshots as possible so that the rest of you can experience Honeycomb in a much less stressful scenario.  I say “stressful” only because this SDK is about as slow and buggy as it gets.  It was created to help developers see what tweaks are needed to get their apps up and running, so we didn’t expect all that much from it and just went in with an open mind.  We actually came out with a ton of good shots and one heck of a preview for this new version of Android that we hope you’ll enjoy.

Check out all 52 pictures of Honeycomb after the break.

    Does anyone know if you will need a separate gmail account when you set it up? You would think they want to keep that seperate so you couldnt transfer purchase that you have on your phone to the tablet and vice versa..

    No blur on the OG… so it stands to reason that Big Red just drags ass on updates. To be honest… I can’t imagine they have much to update on my Droid… it runs fine and I can only expect what they do to screw something up.

    I think the UI is organized really nicely, but isnt aesthetically pleasing at times. For example, in the settings menus the options are just in a purple grey square with no color variation or artistic effect whatsoever. Also i hope there is a font size setting that works throughout the system because i dont think i the Xoom should have to be as close to your face as your phone normally is. Some of that font is super small. Also graphical charts like the sd card usage and memory usage could definitely look a lot nicer. I hope they root this thing quick and easy cuz i wanna see what the Dev teams can create for this great platform.

    Is it just me or did it appear to have a 8×7 grid for the homescreen?

    I’m more excited than I am about the new android phones

    A-flippin-mazing…. I will now need to file an insurance claim on my phone for water damage from the drool… jk, but seriously, it looks so good!!!!

    the one thing I haven’t seen any shots of yet is the keyboard on the screen… any chance of being able to see that? (I cant remember if the emulator showed a keyboard on the phone/device) all the other shots are beautiful and I cant wait to playing with / buying one of these

  • Gottheguds112

    Has anyone been able to kang that wallpaper?

    I would be interested in that, and maybe one with the honeycomb bee superimposed, made for a nonscrolling wallpaper.

    I don’t know, but I am just not “wowed.” Yeah it looks ok, but it looks like it is really intended for a 10″ screen. And I am concerned that while almost all Android apps for 2.2 – and designed for a 3-4 inch screen look and work great on a 7″ tablet, that they will not quite be as impressive scaled out to 10″ – and it will really demand 10″ specific apps.

    The more I think, the more happy I am with having gotten a Galaxy Tab, rather than having waited for the XOOM.

    Why does it have the standard 2.1 style music player? Shouldn’t it come with Honeycomb music player that leaked out a few weeks ago.

    Isn’t it weird that it still has “About Phone” as a setting option?? Especially since Honeycomb is more for tablets…. shouldn’t they switch that to “About Device” … just saying

      In the last screen shot that widget is saying to click the launcher icon to choose apps (like in phones) but that icon has been completely removed…still a little clean up here and there, but I LOVE what I see and can not wait to get my hands on my XOOM!!!

  • Frencha

    Good lord that must have taken forever. I booted up that emulator and gave up pretty quick.

            Kaspersky Internet Security is easily the best anti virus out there. MSE is good, but lacks some features that KIS has.

        Get a mac and never worry about viruses.

          Mac OS has plenty of security issues. The fact of the matter is, something like 90 to 95% of users are running Windows. It isn’t worth writing viruses and spyware for Mac OS (yet).

          Don’t give me the inherently secure BS with the BSD core. While that is true to an extent, with the modifications and such nullify any security there was. Ask anyone who runs a Linux or BSD server if they have X or any kind of graphical system installed, when they tell you no, ask them why.

          You’ll see, if/when Macs get a better market share.

          ROLMFAO!! (you’re joking…..right?!?!?) Mac copied off of linux AND Microsoft to get what they have now…ITUNES is a damn JOKE! You cant share or copy the music and all ur money goes into downloading music and videos n such…what a bunch of B.S.!!!!

      That is just a folder created on the user’s IMAP server or something, so when the account was sync’d, the folder came with it. It doesn’t actually have Norton installed.

    I know Cyanogen is working on hard on a Gingerbread release candidate but where does Honeycomb fall into the mod dev scene? It still looks to be mid year or more before we even begin to see anything worth talking about.

    Perfect! That’s one picture for each week Samsung will delay getting Honeycomb to the Galaxy Tab. :(
