Digitimes is up to its rumor sharing ways yet again. This time the Taiwanese blog is sharing a speculated release date for Gingerbread’s successor, Honeycomb. According to Digitimes, Google’s first tablet friendly OS will be released to the masses in March 2011.
Digitimes, while talking about MSI’s tablet lineup for the upcoming CES 2011, unveiled the release date for the Android 2.3 sucessor:
On the other hand, MSI is set to display its 10-inch Wintel-based tablet PC as well as engineering samples of its ARM-based Google Android model. MSI is also prepared to sell an Nvidia Tegra 2-based model in April or May after Google releases Android 3.0 in March.
Gadgets makers are expected to announce their Honeycomb tablets at the Consumer Electronic Show in 2011, so it makes perfect sense for Honeycomb to make itself available for the masses in March. Another rumor sees Google announcing Honeycomb at the high profile Mobile World Congress event which kicks off in February.
This certainly makes the MWC show all the more exciting doesn’t it?
