Google gives sneak preview of tablet running 'Honeycomb’

By Contador Wanarua Date: 5.12.2010 Google has given gadget fans a sneak peek at its long-awaited tablet that will run a special new version of its massively successful Android software. The gadget will be built by Motorola. The teaser, which has sent the internet rumour mill into overdrive, was designed to showcase the latest version of Android, which has been nicknamed Honeycomb. Honeycomb will be a version of the Android software especially designed to work on tablet computers like Apple’s iPad. Motorola is due to launch a new tablet next year known as Stingray and some industry figures believe this is the template on which the Google tablet will be built. It is expected to have video chat, an NVIDIA processor, a dual core 3D processor and a 10 inch screen when measured diagonally. The sheer fact that Google is close to launching its own tablet is nothing but good news for the genre. An open-source alternative to the iPad will not only please many app developers frustrated by Apple’s stringent acceptance policy but it will allow manufacturers their own slice of the tablet pie. However, the most successful devices will be those that offer end users a solid digital content offering and stable delivery mechanism. With the Honeycomb platform expected in early 2011, the iPad will be a year old and already has a strong foothold in the market. ‘What’s more Google could be facing stiff competition from Apple’s iPad 2 and RIM’s BlackBerry Playbook, both of which are expected in the first half of 2011. He said the 'real trick' for tablets is to offer consumers a real reason to buy them. Some say that the iPad and soon-to-be competitors are digital jacks of all trades but masters of none. The only real competitor to the iPad so far has been the Samsung Galaxy Tab which runs an earlier version of Android 2.2 called Froyo. To demonstrate what Gingerbread will be capable of, Google unveiled a new version of Google Maps with 3D graphics. The application, demonstrated on the new Google tablet, let him zoom almost into street level and show the definition of all of the buildings. The entire application was controlled using pinching and swiping, like on the iPad. Visit My Website : http://wanarua.com
