Honeycomb aka Android 3.0 or 2.4 MSI 10" Tablet with Tegra 2 and Android

According to Taiwan-insiders, some unconfirmed rumours are reporting that, the tablet-optimized version of the Android operating system will be released in March 2011 as Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Honeycomb is expected to see the world for the first time at the CES 2011 in early January, according to a brief report citing the Android based tablet plans of Asustek, MSI and ECS (Elitegroup Computer Systems). So, we have to wait until March to get our hands on these tablets.

DigiTimes is claiming that after the March-launching of Honeycomb, MSI could be releasing a Tegra 2 processor based tablet in late April or early May. But some reports are claiming that but Honeycomb is set to arrive in February as Android 2.4, since Google hasn’t confirmed version numbers yet. MSI is also going to display its 10-inch Wintel-based tablet PC at CES, 2011 and some engineering samples of its ARM-based Google Android based model.

We’ve already seen the leaked images of Motorola’s 10 inch Honeycomb Tablet, which is having Verizon logo, and the rumoured specs are 1 GHz NVidia Tegra 2 T20 dual-core processor, dual cameras, 32GB memory storage, microSD slot, 512MB RAM, gyroscope and HDMI port.

Anyhow, we’ve to wait till January as CES is just around the corner to happen. Note that Motorola isn’t the only company to bring the Honeycomb based tablet, some more companies also expected to announce Android 3.0 Honeycomb powered tablets at CES. So stay tuned for the Android 2.4/3.0 treat in the coming weeks and this gonna be worth waiting..!
