Honeycomb - Android Codename

Honeycomb is the dessert-themed Android codename for the version 3.0 update of the open source Android mobile operating system. Honeycomb made its debut in February 2011 as a tablet-centric update that delivered a new interface optimized for devices with larger screen sizes (particularly tablets), video chat support based on Google Talk protocols, a new System Bar for global status and notifications and an Action Bar for application control, tabbed Web browsing, optimized soft keyboard and a new email interface.

Honeycomb followed several earlier updates for Android – Cupcake (v1.5), Donut (v1.6), Eclair (v2.0), FroYo (v2.2) and Gingerbread  (v2.3) – and is expected to be followed by the upcoming Ice Cream Sandwich (v4.0) update currently in development.
