Android Honeycomb demo lined up for Wednesday

Android Honeycomb demo lined up for WednesdayGoogle is to give a detailed demo of Android Honeycomb at a special event at its Mountain View headquarters on Wednesday that will be streamed live on YouTube.

Considering how big a presence the OS had at CES at the start of January, we still don't know a whole lot about the much-hyped Android version 3.0, other than that it's been specifically designed to be used on tablets.

Google first mentioned its existence while launching Android 2.3 Gingerbread at the start of December, giving us a glimpse of Honeycomb on board a mystery Motorola tablet, which we now know is the Motorola Xoom.

But aside from a short preview video that emerged earlier this month, and the release of the Honeycomb SDK to developers this week that gave an insight into the technical side of things, we're still short on a good few details when it comes to Honeycomb's look and feel.

However, that all looks set to change on Wednesday, and the 90-minute session should give plenty of opportunity for seeing what Honeycomb has to offer in some detail.

So, to confirm, the event is scheduled for Wednesday, February 2 at 10am local time, which is 6pm here in the UK, and you can follow the whole thing live on the Android YouTube page.
