Google hosted its big Honeycomb show-and-tell Wednesday, elaborating on the new Android version's features and capabilities. This is the first version of Android optimized specifically for tablet devices, and it will arrive in iPad rivals from many different manufacturers in the coming months. Google also released a preview of the Honeycomb SDK so developers can become accustomed to making apps for the platform.
Features mentioned in the presentation include richer notifications for incoming messages, faster access to home screen settings, optimized 2D and 3D graphics performance and improved streaming video processing.
