Google’s honeycomb event wrapup


So Google just had their honeycomb event. I can’t say I was very impressed. The googlers were excited about fancy animation frameworks and 3D graphics performance, all which looked pretty average to me. In my opinion honeycomb looks a bit like Windows with it’s widgets on the desktop and toolbar at the bottom with its home/start button on the left and time/notifications on the right.

Google also showcased their web store. It’s kinda of like xbox live where you can browse apps on the web, buy them and they automatically get downloaded on your phone.

The Google event was a bit disappointing for me. At least when Steve Jobs presents something average, it’s still somehow seems awesome. Hopefully he gets better soon.
