Before we can even finish building our gingerbread house, Samsung’s already looking toward the future at Android 3.5 (otherwise unofficially known as honeycomb). Speaking at a Q&A session following the Samsung Galaxy Tab’s official unveiling, head of Samsung Mobile JK Shin commented on a question about future iterations of Android on their current offering. He confirmed that we would be seeing Android 3.0 on the Tab after the upgrade is available (but didn’t mention any timeframe, of course). He did state that Android 3.5 would be the underlying operating system for their next generation of tablets as a bonus answer, too, stating we’d see those sometime in 2011.
While I’m excited that Samsung’s looking to be the first out of the starting gate with honeycomb (it’ll push other manufacturers to keep up to speed, as well), my attention is still focused on devices still needing an upgrade to Android 2.2 (and 2.1, for that matter) as well as the yet-to-be-detailed Android 3.0 (gingerbread) that we should be seeing released sometime near the holiday season..
