Honeycomb will be the next stop for Android after Gingerbread

Speculation regarding the “H” dessert name for the Android OS update to follow after Gingerbread has been ongoing for quite awhile and TechRadar is reporting that they now have confirmation from multiple sources that Honeycomb is the gooey treat that’s getting called up to the show.

Sadly there are no new details at the moment to accompany the name, but with Gingerbread due out by the end of the year we shouldn’t have too much longer to wait before at least some information starts trickling in on its successor. That is unless of course Google is ready to start slowing down their release schedule already.

The Android OS is reaching a maturity at this point which leaves fewer and fewer holes to be filled by the updates. Froyo made significant under the hood improvements with speeds increased in the OS in general as well as the browser. Gingerbread is rumored to be aimed at cleaning up the aesthetics and user interface of Android while also possibly setting some minimum standards and bringing tablets officially into the fold.

So realizing that we still don’t know the whole of what will be encompassed by Gingerbread what do you see as being the focus for Honeycomb?
