This Wednesday, Google will launch Android 3.0 Honeycomb officially at the Google HQ in California.
A number of reporters got the invitations from Google on Friday, and that invitation showed of the new Android-like honeybee logo for Honeycomb, which is the new Android operating system (OS) designed for tablet computers. The Google invite did not reveal any plans of bringing the latest version to smartphones. The logo is a black and blue glowing bee.
According to a report from Strategy Analytics, while total tablet sales globally doubled in the fourth quarter, the iPad came up short, seeing its market share drop from 96% to 75%, which most say is because of increasing sales of Android tablets. Android tablets took 22% of sales, majorly up from the 2.3% they accounted for in the previous quarter.
