Additionally, Google updated their latest smartphone version of Android, Ginergerbread, to version 2.3.3.
Late last month, Google introduced a "preview" version of Honeycomb but Yahoo says the full SDK includes "the ADT plug-in, a new app palette with categories and rendering previews, a more accurate rendering of device-specific layouts, selection-sensitive action bars to manipulate View properties, improvements to zoom, and improved support to merge layouts and create layouts with gesture overlays."
The first tablet with Honeycomb is the upcoming Motorola Xoom, which will be launched next week.
Google says the first two devices to get 2.3.3 (they are pretty much the only devices with 2.3 anyways) are the Nexus One and Nexus S.
2.3.3 adds the "ability to write NFC tags in addition to reading them, better speech recognition, and API support for Bluetooth over a nonsecure socket connection."
