Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb Screenshot Preview (Video)

January 27, 2011, By Leo Xavier

We have great news for those of you who are waiting for a device featuring Google’s latest operating system, the Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Google has just released the Honeycomb SDK that will allow users to download an emulator to their computers to take a peek at how the new OS works and how it differs from the previous operating systems.

A collection of screenshots and a video, which comes to us courtesy of Engadget, will help you to get an up close and personal look at the new OS that is made specifically for tablets and devices with a large screen size.

According to our source, Honeycomb is very slow, but don’t get worried over that since it’s just a preview build.

And there is some sort of an orientation bug that will not allow us to go landscape. But, you can just uncheck automatic orientation in Settings, and then flip the emulator from landscape to portrait.

The browser looked great, and the UI experience seemed to be more pleasant than the same from any other tablet to date.

If you would like to download it for yourself, check it out here.

Although this released SDK won’t be that satisfying, you won’t have to wait too long to play with the final product, since the Motorola Xoom Honeycomb tablet is expected to be launched sometime soon.
