Android upgrades for Tablets

From Eric Hutchinson:

Android 3.0 is Android’s new platform that is optimized for large-screen devices such as tablets. As the popularity of tablets rises operating system developers must keep up and adapt. The 3.0 version simply builds onto things that won people over in the older versions. Things like refined multitasking, rich notifications, home screen customization options and widgets are just a few features that make Android’s operating system both functional and fun. The new platform will include a system bar for system status, notifications and soft navigation. An action bar will allow application control, navigation and widget options. Android even reshaped and repositioned the keys on the touch keyboard to allow faster text input. Much more has been redesigned and tweaked, so this new platform should prove to be a winner for tablet users
