    Yesterday, we had a story over on AndroidTablets.net, regarding the new Huawei 7-Inch Android Tablet running a new version of Honeycomb, 3.2. Today we found some more potential details on this update to Honeycomb that was a mystery until yesterday. Apparently, this newer version of the OS is not only optimized for 7-inch tablets, but also adds the following:
    • Support for dual-core Qualcomm chips
    • A few minor alterations, including a much-needed update to the Movie Studio app
    • Bug fixes
    • Improved hardware acceleration
    Further reports also indicate that this new update may be rolling out fairly soon to all other Honeycomb devices, and the Xoom may be getting it within a few weeks.

    I feel like a 7-inch screen will be really narrow with Honeycomb..
