Android Honeycomb 3.2 Appears On ITProPortal Analytics

Android OS 3.2, the next major update to Honeycomb, is real, an in depth analysis of Google Analytics stats of ITProPortal.com has revealed today; we have also noted that a minor upgrade to Android OS Gingerbread, AKA 2.3.5, is also in the pipeline.

The first visit on an Android 3.2 device happened on the 20th of June and a few other users have visited our websites on Honeycomb 3.2 devices which were all, unsurprisingly, on a 1280x800 pixel screen resolution.

Google Analytics also told us that the the visitors came from Chicago and intriguingly, Beijing in China. The link between Chicago and Beijing might well be the fact that Huawei Technologies is present in both cities.

The Chinese telecommunications giant announced last week that they will launch the first Android Honeycomb 3.2 device, a tablet called the Mediapad.

The release may take some of Google's closer partners like HTC and Samsung by surprise as they have just started to roll out Android Honeycomb 3.1.

The follow up to the latter is likely to be security-related and may only bring a few additional minor features like enhanced compatibility with 7-inch screens. Expect Ice Cream Sandwich, the next big iteration of Android to be the one on which Google is focusing its mobile resources for the foreseeable future.
