First Look At Android 3.0 Honeycomb: ‘Entirely For Tablet’ Video Released!

Oooo this one is a doozy.  Engadget has gotten their hands on a video highlighting the new UI for tablets that will come with Android 3.0 Honeycomb and boy does it look phenomenal.  There are a lot of Tron-esque elements in the video but we do also see a lot of great UI and multitasking magic. The Gmail client looks absolutely fantastic to us.  Since this video specifically calls out tablets we don’t expect to see this on a phone anytime soon.  Take a look at the video embedded below and let us know what you think in the comments. iPad what?

Well, look who just oozed into being, Google‘s latest flavor of Android, the tablet-friendly 3.0, Honeycomb. We heard talk that 3.0 would be exclusively for tablets, as in not for phones, and that looks to be played out with the text “Entirely for Tablet” seen early in the video. Perhaps the best thing to say is that this looks more or less nothing like Android. Sure, the browser is the same, and the Gmail app will be familiar to iPad users, but trust us when we say there’s a lot of lovely UI in the video above to admire…and a lot of glowly blue lights, too. Apparently we weren’t the only ones who saw Tron:Legacy on opening night.
