Google Stuff just keeps on piling up today - and I'm trying to work through my second playthrough of Mass Effect 2 on insanity (fourth playthrough overall). I have the sneaking suspicion, though, that nobody sympathises with my problems... Anywho, Google just unveiled the tablet user interface for Android 3.0, Honeycomb. Looks pretty decent I guess - somehow, it reminds me of Tron.

Is the Android 3.0 only intended for tablets (larger screens)?

Or is there going to be another Android 3.0 UI for mobile phones (smaller screens)?


In an earlier interview Andy Rubin hinted that it would be for all kinds of devices. The idea was that applications should be able to take advantage of larger devices, while still looking good on smaller ones.


E.g you may have an Android activity to show the titles of incoming emails as the only thing that displays at the same on a small phone and click on the screen to read the mail or se folder lists in a new full screen activity. On a table the same application would be able to display the mail titles, the mail folders, and the actual mail all at the same time.
