The next version of the Android operating system, Android 3.2 Honeycomb, is said to be on its way to tablet manufacturers by the end of this month of by early August according to some rumors online. This means that tablet manufacturers will soon be able to release tablets with the latest version of Android Honeycomb installed – which means we might start to see more 7″ Honeycomb tablets.
Android 3.2 Honeycomb was first announced when the Huawei MediaPad was unveiled not too long ago, and was said that it would be the first version of Honeycomb designed for smaller tablets. Regardless of whether all this is hearsay or not, Android 3.2 being rolled out to OEMs seems inevitable anyway – it’s not like Google will want manufacturers to continue producing tablets with an outdated operating system. Now hopefully manufacturers like Samsung will be rolling out the Honeycomb updates to its smaller tablets like the original Galaxy Tab.
