Google Usually it's Apple doing the event thing, but today the thunder's on Google. It held a press event to officially unveil Android 3.0 Honeycomb for tablets, as well as a revamped Android market. Gizmodo has a hands-on of the Motorola Xoom running Android 3.0, as does Engadget. Also today, the Android Market has been updated with a web frontend which allows for the seamless purchase and installation of Android applications from within your browser, which are then pushed to your device(s). In-application purchases have been added as well.

Way to confuse issues... Google is not responsible for carriers hold out on upgrade version.

Honeycomb is the tablet version. They always said it was for tablet. so again nothing to do with phones.

Finally, end-users don't give a damn about fragmentation. I have only one phone.

Consumers may not care about fragmentation, but they do care about it's effects on them.

There are a number of decent Android phones, but I have absolutely no idea how long they will be supported. If I could find a phone in my budget where the company promised to update it for just 18 months, I would purchase right now.

Uh, Google has already announced IceCream, the phone variant of Honeycomb. I would bet anything that it won't be available for any current Android phone, though, regardless of whether any current phone is capable of running it or not.
