Top 7 Most Intuitive Features of Android OS 3.0 (Honeycomb)

CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2011 has ended but it has unveiled new Chapter of the ‘Book of Future’ in front of us.

Although the IT Companies had given hints about their products before their appearance in market but CES revealed in and out of it.


Motorola Xoom Tablet PC was declared the winner gadget of CES Top Portable Computing Devices and the best part of about Motorola Xoom came from Google.

Motorola Xoom Tablet PC runs on Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) and the Top 7 Features of Honeycomb that would give hard time to other Tablet PCs are:-

New Tabbed Interface

Just like Dell’s Stage User Interface on Dell Streak, Honeycomb has 5 home screens that can be customized with widgets. The bottom is embedded with quick navigation options which one can use to get to their favorite websites, music, videos and much more.

Android OS 3.0 also has privileges to display blog RSS on any of the 5 home screens.

Better Laid Web Browser


Android OS 3.0 has an improved browser that is not is only faster but much secure too. It supports websites running with a SSL certificate with ease.

The tabbed browsing shows remarkable similarity with Google Chrome web browser.

Voice & Video Chat with Google Pals

Android OS 3.0 has integrated Google Chat as a dedicated Chat application; there is no need to download other softwares now.

Google Chat was one of the applications which made Android OS 3.0 (Honeycomb) one of the most awaited OS of the year.

Google Books

People love reading books in a digitized format and the humongous sales of Amazon Kindle is a proof of that. Android OS 3.0 (Honeycomb) incorporates a dedicated storage and eBook Reading application which makes switching between different books easier.


This eBook Reader app is connected to Google Books and thus buying content for Android OS 3.0 (Honeycomb) becomes just a matter of clicks.

Personally, this is something I would like to purchase Honeycomb Tablet PC for.

Sensory Tuning Enhanced

Are you playing on any of the motion sensing games available on Android Market? Well if you love playing games that uses your hand movements to control the characters then this feature is exclusively for you.

Android OS 3.0 (Honeycomb) has an improved accelerometer, magnetometer, gyroscope and ambient light sensor.

Improved Multi Tasking

Many people complain that doing multi tasking on both Android Smartphones and Android Tablet PC is a pain but not anymore.


Android OS 3.0 (Honeycomb) has Multi-Pane application which can be controlled using the left hand sidebar which gives you control over the apps which you are using currently.

Browsing Internet and listening to music at the same time will not be pain anymore.

Improved Android Market Layout

Google Android Team got to the heart of the matter and has built a great Android Market layout for Android OS 3.0 (Honeycomb). The apps are arranged with categories and it is easier to find what apps you want.

With Honeycomb, Android users can buy or download apps from Android Market without having to think twice.

Android OS 3.0 (Honeycomb) is quite new and not many Tablet PCs are using it at the moment, it is a futuristic OS for Tablets and Large Screen Smartphones.

I think it would become the best Portable Computing OS. What do you think?
