Google invites us all to big Honeycomb event on February 2

Android OS, Google

Honeycomb event

We learned a lot about Honeycomb at CES earlier this month – after all, it was powering a whole lot of tablets, and there are plenty of Android 3.0 videos and quality screen shots available on the interwebs, and even an SDK preview.

On February 2nd, however, we’ll get a more detailed look at Honeycomb, since Google then will properly reveal the next iteration of Android at an event at Google headquarters, Mountain View. The event will include “an in-depth look at Honeycomb, Android ecosystem news and hands-on demos,” so Google might provide more than just a recap of what we’ve seen so far.

Something a lot of us are curious about, is whether or not Honeycomb will be an OS exclusively for tablets, or if it will power smartphones as well (as we saw a hint of yesterday). And if Honeycomb also is intended for phones, how will the interface differ from the tablet version? Will it even resemble Gingerbread?

Hopefully we’ll get all these questions answered, and more, on Wednesday next week. We can all watch the event live at youtube.com/android.
