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.

Give the poor guy a break. After the Apple fanatics disregarded Android for months on end as a crude toy for geeks, now that it's incredibly popular, they have to come up with ever more contrived reasons to dismiss it. It's like watching a child tripping over his own lies about not taking candy from the jar.

Incredibly entertaining for those of us who really don't give a shit about any platform in particular (iPhone user here).

What an excellent example of indoctrination - I wonder if people like that have some parts of their brains replaced by tech ;) ))

Oh, what are you playing btw? I finished ME2 on insanity with a Sentinel first, then an Adept. What a brilliant story!!! Can't have enough of that game...

I just don't get what he is complaining about. iOS apps have different interfaces on different form factors.

The only thing google is doing different is having a launcher better suited to tablets unlike the the ipads stretched iphone launcher.

According to Google, most Android phones are running version 2.2

Android’s Users Eclipse IPhone’s for First Time, comScore Says:

http://blogs.wsj.com/digits/2011/01/05/androids-users-eclipse-iphon...

"For the first time, more Americans say they are using cellphones powered by Google Inc.’s Android system than Apple Inc.’s iPhone, according to a new survey from technology-tracking firm comScore Inc."


One wonders if the iPad might go the same way when Android 3.0 becomes available on ARM tablets.

Apparently, this will commence in March.

I'm sure a lot of ARM tablets now available with Android 2.1 or 2.2 will be updated to Android 3.0, such as these perhaps:

Perhaps even Intel Atom tablets now available will also be upgradeable to Android 3.0, such as these perhaps:
