"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."
