Introducing the Honeycomb UI

  • Mark Murphy


February 2011 saw the introduction of Android 3.0 and a UI paradigm that, for now, we will refer to by the Android 3.0 codename, Honeycomb. Android 3.0 itself is exclusively targeted at tablets, though elements of the Honeycomb UI system will make it into future versions of Android that support phones as well. The Honeycomb UI is perhaps the biggest single change in Android since Android 0.9, before the first phones were available. The impacts of Honeycomb will resound throughout the Android ecosystem for a long time as people adjust to make use of its features.
