Personally, I'm more intrigued by the idea of the hardware that will utilize this unknown Android OS - the "next generation tablet," for which Honeycomb is "specifically optimized." Let more slip, Samsung reps.

Couple of typos - Froyo is Android 2.2, not 2.1 as it's listed in the article; and Gingerbread's recommended specs are 512MB of RAM, not 512MB or RAM.

Thanks for the info about Honeycomb, sounds interesting. Keep the info coming guys! :)

Seriously these companies need to lower the price of these tablets. For the same price I can get a 13 inch laptop with a lot more connectivity and flexibility IMO.

I guess we'll find out sooner or later what Honycomb is. But in the meantime... would you like fries with those?

I believe I saw somewhere else that Honeycomb was the code name for the next iteration of Android after Gingerbread.

Half the phones out now don't support 2.2 "yet", 75% won't support "gingerbread" at all, and 100% won't support "honeycomb".

What a joke of a platform.

Google really seems to be upping the ante, Gingerbread looks good (especially with there own Itunes), and there is very little information on Honeycomb... I wonder if Google will actually comment on this, or just play it cool like it came out on purpose.

It sounds like Honeycomb will become the more norm, and i don't know that everyone is going to want a 3.5+ inch screen cell phone (if it will be used as a smartphone OS). Years ago Motorola made flip phone that was "cool" and now, having a 4+ inch screen is "cool". I like a bigger screen, but i would like having a smaller screen with more battery, and still have a strong processor.
