Although the Google Nexus S and Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) has just been released, Google still keeps pushing forward. During the conference D: Dive Into Mobile, Google’s Andy Rubin reveals a tablet running Android version 3.0 (Honeycomb).
Among other things, he shows us the new 3D map display in Google Maps. What allows the new presentation is that maps are no longer a series of tiles, but rather vector graphics. There are also improved 3D abilities and new panning and zooming options.
“It will be available for cellphones in a matter of days,” Rubin says.
The tablet, which is a prototype from Motorola, is equipped with a dual-core 3D processor from NVIDIA, the possibility of video calls, and is currently running Android 3.0. See the full presentation in the video below.
