Motorola Gives a Glimpse of Android 3.0 Honeycomb Tablet

Motorola has released a brief video on YouTube teasing the introduction, at
the Consumer Electronics Show in January, of a tablet computer based on
Google’s Android Honeycomb operating system.

The clip, titled "Tablet Evolution" and set in a museum, is a 1:36-minute
history lesson of actual stone tablets, beginning with an Egyptian hieroglyphic
tablet dated 3,200 B.C. and moving on to the Ten Commandments and Rosetta
Stone.

When the teaser gets to the real message, it does so with competitive
sniping at de facto standard tablet makers Apple and Samsung.

Motorola calls Apple’s iPad a "giant iPhone" (iOS powers both
devices) and notes that Samsung’s Galaxy Tab is Android OS "for a phone."

The Tab is based on Android 2.2, which Google executives have acknowledged
is not optimized for tablets. Even so, the Tab has sold more than 1 million units this year.
