Android Honeycomb due next year tablet gets supported & Google Maps version 5 also shown

Google is just everywhere aren't they? With the surprising, for me, unveiling of the Nexus One successor, the Samsung made Nexus S, Google still owns the spotlight by letting the public take a sneak peak of their newest and latest, yet to be launched, version of the most popular OS today, Android. 

The Android Honeycomb is also set to succeed over Android 2.3 Gingerbread, which was also unveiled and announced together with the Nexus S. Today, Google lets us take a look at that successor. 

Using an unnamed Motorola tablet, they have shown the Honeycomb which is set to be launched "sometime next year"

About the Motorola tablet that was not named, there is, of course, no detail about that and the same goes with the OS aside from the fact that it will be supporting tablets but not limited to tablet devices. During the event where the Honeycomb was shown off, Google have also showed the next version of Google Maps, version 5. 

This will be Google Map's most radical upgrade. Instead of enhancing the 2D experience of it all of using Google Maps, why not use an app that shows you a 3D view of a map? Well that's what the 5th version of  Google Maps is here for. Google Maps version 5 will be available "in coming days", says Andy Rubin, Google co-founder.
"The compatibility list at this point includes the Galaxy S, Droid original, X, 2 and Incredible, HTC Evo, HTC G2 and the newly-announced Nexus S. Other handsets will be able to use varying aspects of the new client, depending on their hardware capabilities." - Neowin
