According to a report filed by PCMag today, Google’s soon-to-be-released, tablet-optimized Android iteration –Honeycomb — will require some serious processing power. The blog cites the managing director of Korea’s Enspert consumer electronics firm, Bobby Cha, and writes that, “Google’s new […] tablet OS will require a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor to run properly.” Mr. Cha went on to note that Honeycomb may also require 1,280 x 720 screen resolution, but should run on tablets with displays measuring at least 7-inches on the diagonal. Presumably, single-core Android tablets already in the market (e.g. Samsung’s Galaxy Tab) would be unable to run the tablet-centric offering. Mr. Cha, who admitted his company is currently working on Froyo, Gingerbread, as well as Honeycomb devices, states that Honeycomb will be shipped to manufacturers “towards the end of January.”
