There has been a lot of news on the Android front lately, with the release of the Nexus S as well as the source code for Google’s Android OS 2.3 codename Gingerbread.  The next version of the OS, codename Honeycomb, has always been thought to be version 3.0.  From what we know or have heard Honeycomb is being made specifically for tablets.
