Android 3.0 Honeycomb

Android 3.0, aka Honeycomb, has been bouncing around the rumor mill for some time now, and we even got a small taste of it thanks to some Motorola tablet leaks.  Today Google posted a video on its Android Developers YouTube page showing off the tablet-focused update, which combines some of the aspects of Gingerbread and meshes them with a brand new user interface.  There was some speculation about whether or not Honeycomb would ever make it to Android phones, but considering that the phrase "Entirely for Tablets" makes an appearance in the video, I wouldn't hold my breath while waiting for 3.0 to come to handset if I were you.  The video has since been privated on YouTube, but the folks over at Engadget managed to re-up it themselves.  Check it out down below.

There's been a lot of hype around Motorola's upcoming XOOM tablet, but I have a feeling that the anticipation is going to increase tenfold now that we've gotten a good look at the OS that'll be powering the device.  Luckily, we shouldn't have to wait long to get to try Honeycomb out for ourselves, if the rumored early February launch holds true, that is.  So, now that we've finally gotten to preview Honeycomb, what do you all think?
