We all know that the Motorola XOOM will be the first Android-powered tablet to receive the Android 3.2 Honeycomb update, and even better news is this – Google themselves have made the latest version of Honeycomb kosher and official. Of course, with each new release, we can expect nothing but better features and perhaps fixes to some bugs, so do check out the highlights below and in the extended post to know what Android 3.2 Honeycomb is all about.
For starters, Honeycomb offers optimizations for a wider range of tablets, making sure that the user experience will be more consistent and pleasant across a bevy of tablets. You also get compatibility zoom for fixed-sized apps, making sure apps that were not designed to function on larger screen sizes will not look out of whack.
Not only that, there is the ability to support media synchronization right from an SD memory card itself, not to mention an extended screen support API that provides developers who want more precise control over their UI to work things out nice and tidy.
The SDK (Software Development Kit) for the OS has been placed online so that developers and the curious can check it out – anyone given it a go yet, and how do you find it?
