Honeycomb anyone ?

I've just seen YouTube videos related to Honeycomb presentation, I've read few specs and nothing more, is there someone here involved in it ? It could be great to have some information on it.

At the moment I've just seen Google and Motorola presentations, even the Xoom spot on superbowl, read few specs but I've not realized real differences between 2.x and 3.x versions.

    I have not touched 3.0, but my understanding of the differences are:

    2.X is for phones - 3.X is for tablets
    The gui design if different for each release
    3.X is optimized to work on larger screens
    3.X is being built to run 2.X apps, but 2.X system will not be able to run 3.X apps
    The webbrowser on 3.X has more features, most likely an implementation of chrome

    Nice to read it.
    I've seen few demos but they're totally oriented to marketing stuff, 3.0 Interface seems to be gorgeous and appealing but I've no idea of new apps using it, thanks for now

    It is unlikely someone here is involved in it.

    It is a fork of a fork of Linux.

    There is little benefit flowing back to Linux, and the development environment is extremely Java-centric.
