Video: Motorola Teases Honeycomb Tablet for CES
With the Consumer Electronics Show coming up in early January, electronics manufacturers are starting to tease us with the stuff they'll bring to the show. Motorola has put together a teaser video implying that it will have a Honeycomb tablet that will beat the iPad and the Galaxy Tab.
The coming CES is expected to be packed with tablets, and Motorola will be no exception. We've already had a glimpse of Motorola's tablet when Android head Andy Rubin used it at a recent tech conference. Now it appears from the video above that Motorola is ready to make it official and thinks it will be able to take on the iPad.
The thing that will make the Motorola tablet so great (in theory) is the new version of the Android mobile operating system : version 3.0 Honeycomb.
So far, Android tablets have simply tried to make do with an OS designed for smaller screens and phones . But Honeycomb is Google's first version of Android that is built specifically to accommodate tablets. From the little hints we've seen, it does a good job and will likely be what makes Android tablets able to compete with the iPad's elegantly simple interface. Honeycomb still doesn't have an official release date, though.
Some leaked images of the Motorola tablet showed the device carries the Verizon logo, so it's likely there will be a deal with the carrier for 3G data plans, but little else is known about the 10-inch Motorola tablet or how much it will cost. CES couldn't come sooner for Android tablet fans.
