Android 'Honeycomb' 3.2 unveiled

Google has announced the latest version of their tablet oriented operating system, in version 3.2 of Android 'Honeycomb'.

The news of the newest rendition of the Google mobile device OS came from the Android developer’s website, which has now released the software development kit for coders to start writing apps for this latest tablet platform.

Android 'Honeycomb' 3.2 arrives with several new capabilities for users and developers, which is set to appear on devices later on in the year – judging by the recent timelines of deployments to these tablets.

This new iteration has been optimised for a wider range of tablets, with a variety of refinements across the system for a greater array of 'devices' - with a view that the OS could be used on smaller screen-based products, than the larger ones already seen around today.

There are also features in 'Honeycomb' 3.2 for running fixed-sized applications in a better way on the platform, where non-tablet specific apps could be run on the larger screen devices with pixel scaling instead of just stretching the software screen to fit the display.

Media syncing from a SD card is also a new ability to this latest version of 'Honeycomb', which allows for users to directly load media files from storage cards to various apps.
