Famed tech rumor starter DigiTimes is reporting that Honeycomb, which is the version of Android built with some specific tablet features, won’t be released by Google until March of next year. No sources or mentions of sources are given, and it almost looks like a line just dropped on a rumor they would love to see come true. They also mentioned in the same report, that the version number will still be 3.0 and not 2.4 which had become the new favorite in the numbering scheme…
On the other hand, MSI is set to display its 10-inch Wintel-based tablet PC as well as engineering samples of its ARM-based Google Android model. MSI is also prepared to sell an Nvidia Tegra 2-based model in April or May after Google releases Android 3.0 in March.
So what do you guys think? If this is the case, we won’t see Honeycomb tablets until March, rather than February which I believe is what most of us were hoping for. I know that January will fly by after all of the announcements of everything at CES, but it’s going to be hard for us to stop the drooling for 3 months while they prepare those same products for store shelves.
