In a brief report summarizing the tablet plans of ECS, Asustek, and MSI, Taiwanese blog DigiTimes matter of factly published the release date of Google’s tablet-optimized version of its Android operating system, Honeycomb (3.0). As the post reads:
On the other hand, MSI is set to display its 10-inch Wintel-based tablet PC [at CES] 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.
The publication’s statement should — as always — be taken with a grain of salt, as no specific (or vague) sources were cited in the report. One thing is certain, if OEMs begin announcing Android 3.0 tablets in January at CES, and we have to wait until March to get our hands on them, we’re not going to be happy.
