Facility to buy applications from a computer, buy features inside the app, improved graphics and video chat
Google has unveiled its new Android OS for tablet computers called Honeycomb.
Honeycomb marks Google’s first full-fledged release for tablets, a category that Apple reinvented in 2010 with the introduction of the iPad.
Honeycomb features the facility to buy applications from a computer, buy features inside the app, improved graphics and video chat.
Google also refined the camera user interface to give those interested in playing around with camera settings many more options and features, as well as a time-lapse video recording feature.
Motorola’s Xoom device, which is due to go on sale this month, will be the first device to run on Honeycomb.
LG and T-Mobile are expected to follow close behind with their upcoming G-Slate tablet.
Google unlike other companies does not make its own devices but provides it OS freely to manufacturers. This resulted in approximately 145 devices running on Android, including few tablets.
