Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb Event February 2nd

Tomorrow will be a very sweet day for Honeycomb, as Google is holding a Press Event. Along with the unveiling of Honeycomb there may also be a few more surprises. The rumor mill is churning and it says Google will announce their online Android Market, and cloud-based music service, Google Music.

Honeycomb is very different from previous versions of Android, and specifically geared for use on tablets. It would only make sense for Google to unleash new services within Honeycomb. 

With the online version of the Android Market users will be able to search for apps via their computers, and download them directly to their phone. This sounds great, but not the most talked about service that we really can't wait to see...Google Music.

Much like the online Market, users can shop for music, and have it downloaded immediately to their phone. If you don't have enough room on your device's SD card, you don't necessarily have to download any music to your phone. You can access your home computer's music library using the Google cloud-based service.

Oh, I can't wait to hear the news to be released at the Honeycomb Event tomorrow. If all these predictions come to light, it will make owning a tablet a lot harder to wait for. I hope they soon start making some of these great Android tablets available for purchase. 

Oh, have you seen the Blue Bee Honeycomb Icon yet? It's wicked cool! Take a peek below.
