Android 3.2 Honeycomb coming soon with support for several screen sizes and Qualcomm CPUsAlex Wagner - Senior News Editor
Google may have just introduced Android 3.1 last month at Google I/O, but that doesn't mean that we'll be waiting long for the next big version of Honeycomb to land. Originally mentioned earlier today in Huawei's announcement of the MediaPad, a report from This is my next and three of the site's sources has revealed that Android 3.2 is indeed the real deal. The update will reportedly be rolled out to current tablets like the Motorola XOOM in the "next few weeks," with new 7-inch devices landing in August.
So what kind of features will Android 3.2 sport? According to This is my next, here's what we can expect in 3.2
- Ability to run on a "range" of display sizes
- Support for Qualcomm processors
- Bug fixes
- Better hardware acceleration
- Updates for Movie Studio, Movies, Music, and widgets
Finally, it's worth mentioning that Android 3.2 is said to be the final version of Honeycomb that'll be released before Ice Cream Sandwich arrives. It's kind of surprising to hear that Google may be planning to roll out an update to 3.2 so soon after 3.1 debuted, but hey, we're not ones to complain about getting speedy updates. When we hear more about the Android 3.2 update, including more concrete news on when it'll be rolling out to tablets on the market right now, we'll let you know.
