"Google's Android czar Andy Rubin during a presentation
yesterday showed off a prototype of a Motorola Android tablet
running Honeycomb, the next version of the Linux mobile OS that's
optimized for slate PCs and due out early next year.
""He came with a prototype Motorola Android tablet, running a
dual-core Nvidia chip and Honeycomb, the next iteration of Android.
And he used it to show off a forthcoming update to Google's mobile
maps application," writes John Paczkowski at the Digital Daily All
Things D Website.
"The demonstration of the Motorola Android tablet came on the
heels of Google's announcement that Gingerbread, Android 2.3, is
now available for developers, and that the Gingerbread-powered
Nexus S, the follow-up to the first Google-branded phone -- the
Nexus 1 -- will go on sale next week."
