Android 3.0 due in March
—In a report detailing tablet plans of ECS, Asustek, and MSI, blog DigiTimes revealed the release date of Google’s tablet-optimized version of its Android operating system, Honeycomb (3.0).
The post reads as follows:
“On the other hand, MSI is set to display its 10-inch Wintel-based tablet PC [at CES] as well as engineering samples of its ARM-based Google Android model. MSI is also prepared to sell an Nvidia Tegra 2-based model in April or May after Google releases Android 3.0 in March.”
Details are scarce, but if OEMs begin announcing Android 3.0 tablets in January at CES, March is going to seem like an eternity.
