									                     Android 3.0 Platform Preview

Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) is a new version of the Android platform that is designed from
the ground up for devices with larger screen sizes, particularly tablets. It introduces a new
―holographic‖ UI theme and an interaction model that builds on the things people love
about Android — multitasking, notifications, widgets, and others — and adds many new
features as well.

Besides the user-facing features it offers, Android 3.0 is also specifically designed to give
developers the tools and capabilities they need to create great applications for tablets and
similar devices, together with the flexibility to adapt existing apps to the new UI while
maintaining compatibility with earlier platform versions and other form-factors.

Today, we are releasing a preview of the Android 3.0 SDK, with non-final APIs and
system image, to allow developers to start testing their existing applications on the tablet
form-factor and begin getting familiar with the new UI patterns, APIs, and capabilties
that will be available in Android 3.0.

Here are some of the highlights:

            UI framework for creating great apps for larger screen devices:
             Developers can use a new UI components, new themes, richer widgets and
             notifications, drag and drop, and other new features to create rich and
             engaging apps for users on larger screen devices.
            High-performance 2D and 3D graphics: A new property-based animation
             framework lets developers add great visual effects to their apps. A built-in
             GL renderer lets developers request hardware-acceleration of common 2D
             rendering operations in their apps, across the entire app or only in specific
             activities or views. For adding rich 3D scenes, developers take advantage
             of a new 3D graphics engine called Renderscript.
            Support for multicore processor architectures: Android 3.0 is optimized to
             run on either single- or dual-core processors, so that applications run with
             the best possible performance.
            Rich multimedia: New multimedia features such as HTTP Live streaming
             support, a pluggable DRM framework, and easy media file transfer
             through MTP/PTP, give developers new ways to bring rich content to
            New types of connectivity: New APIs for Bluetooth A2DP and HSP let
             applications offer audio streaming and headset control. Support for
             Bluetooth insecure socket connection lets applications connect to simple
             devices that may not have a user interface.
            Enhancements for enterprise: New administrative policies, such as for
             encrypted storage and password expiration, help enterprise administrators
             manage devices more effectively.
