Google accidentally confirms Android 3.0 in video

Google movie confirms Honeycomb is Android 3

Google today briefly posted a video (working copy below) that confirmed Honeycomb's nature as Android 3.0. The video, since made private on Google's official site, shows the interface seen at Andy Rubin's demo. The software is "built entirely for tablet" and either uses the full screen for app interfaces or puts them in separate panes.

The platform has few other details but is known to be almost entirely reliant on touch, as it doesn't need any front hardware buttons.

Android 3.0 should be the cornerstone of most Android tablets released this year and is known to include devices from Acer, HTC, LG, Motorola and Samsung among many others. It may not be ready to ship until March and has been blamed for delays to some smaller companies' tablet plans. [via Computerworld]

    Oh dang...

    There goes the big secret. Doesn't seem to have the punch of the iPhone 4 pix though does it?

    To bad that hardware makers will sabotage the experience with crappy under powered devices and firmware locks to prevent updates...

    Google, what are you doing

    Could it be any more complicated? Really, how is this supposed to compete with iPad?

    Great!

    Love the demo. It looks very promising. Now lets see the evolution of iOS for iPad. For me as a consumer, I don't give a XPTO if is google or Apple, I love both their techs and believe the competition between them can only profit the consumer (me).

    So for the commentators that are only Apple(like hail Apple, and the rest are an inferior race), get a grip and diverse a little your mind, so this could do some good to all of us.
