Ars technica reports
on the launch event for Google's Android 3.0 ("Honeycomb"), which has a new UI targeted for tablet devices. "The company also emphasized its commitment to offering richer APIs for developers. Google regards the home screen as a part of the platform, not just a dumping ground for application icons. The home screen widget system has been greatly enhanced to enable the development of more interactive data-driven widgets. The notification system also got an overhaul for Honeycomb, making it possible for developers to expose more information and interactive functionality in notifications.
