• Android Honeycomb

    Android Honeycomb is the codename for the eighth version of Android , designed for devices with larger screen sizes, particularly tablets. It is no longer supported. Honeycomb debuted with the Motorola Xoom in February 2011. [2]

    [3] Besides the addition of new features, Honeycomb introduced a new so-called "holographic" user interface theme and an interaction model that built on the main features of Android, such as multitasking, notifications and widgets. [4][5]


    New features introduced in Honeycomb include the following:

    The Email and Contacts apps use a two-pane UI .

    The Gallery app now lets users view albums and other collections in full-screen mode, with access to thumbnails for other photos in a collection.

    The Browser app replaces browser windows with tabs, adds an incognito mode for anonymous browsing, and presents bookmarks and history in a unified view, among other features.

    A redesigned keyboard to make entering text easier on large-screen devices such as tablets .

    A Recent Apps view for multitasking.

    Customizable home screens (up to five).
