Android Honeycomb debut set for Wednesday
Google's vice president of engineering Andy Rubin on Wednesday will formally debut Android 3.0, nicknamed Honeycomb, at a company event in Mountain View, Calif.
Invitations to the event went out Friday, promising Rubin and other Google employees will show off in-depth demonstrations of what the new system can do. Unlike its predecessors, Honeycomb is said to be focused on running on tablets rather than phones.
At the Consumer Electronics Show, many companies bragged about running the latest build of Android on their tablets, including the Motorola Xoom, which many have dubbed the most likely challenger to Apple's iPad.
Rubin teased Honeycomb in early December 2010 and at CES.
