    One of the on going debates here on the forum has been "Will Honeycomb, the next major version of Android release as 2.4 or 3.0?" Well as if we haven't had enough excitement already today, Google drops a short preview of the new Android operating system and puts the argument to rest. Honeycomb will officially release as v3.0 of Android. Check it out in the video below!

    True, but it does say at the beginning of the video built "Built Entirely for Tablet". I'm realling hoping its for both.

    It would actually kind of make sense if it was only for tablets because the way those buttons are always present would make it easier to have a tablet with no buttons but I don't think we'll actually be seeing phones with no capacitive or hard buttons. I could be wrong, but I'm just saying it does make sense. Maybe those devices that have been surfing websites with 2.4 (if they're actually real) will have some of the enhancements of Honeycomb but just have them on a phone.
