CES 2011: Google shows of tablet-optimized Android 3.0 Honeycomb
Google took CES by storm today, showing off the tablet-optimized Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) operating system.

The video makes it clear that 3.0 is made "entirely for tablet," which leaves some questions as to what will happen with the vast Android smartphone line when 3.0 becomes inevitable.

As part of the update, Google has added a 3D task switcher, a large virtual keyboard, more powerful (and live) widgets, a portal to Google Books, tabbed browsing, the updated YouTube, 3D Google Maps (version 5.0 on smartphones) and other more subtle features.

Check the video out:

    I believe that Honeycomb is for Tablets and Gingerbread is for smartphones. 3.x = Tablets 2.x = Smatphones right?
