"Google on Wednesday gave mobile application developers their first look at its Android 3.0 mobile operating system for tablets, releasing a preview of the Honeycomb software development kit (SDK).

"Xavier Ducrohet, technical lead for Google's SDK team, in a blog post, said the release gives developers a chance to start testing their new tablet-centric apps and familiarize themselves with new UI patterns, APIs and other capabilities that will be available on its third-generation mobile operating system.

""Besides the user-facing features it offers, Android 3.0 is also specifically designed to give developers the tools and capabilities they need to create great applications for tablets and similar devices, together with the flexibility to adapt existing apps to the new UI while maintaining compatibility with earlier platform versions and other form-factors," Ducrohet said."
