Snapdragon-friendly Android 3.2 is a perfect fit for 7-inch screens

Google Android logoAndroid 3.2 Honeycomb is coming to a wide range of devices this summer and will add support for Qualcomm processors and 7-inch screens. It will also be the last Honeycomb iteration before the Ice Cream Sandwich rolls out in late autumn.

This info answers lots of questions born with the Hauwei 7" Media Pad's announcement yesterday. Even though the news doesn't come from Google itself, three independent sources spilled the beans on exactly the same information.

In addition to the Qualcomm CPUs (such as the popular Snapdragons) and the optimization for 7-inch screens, the Android 3.2 Honeycomb upgrade will also offer improved hardware acceleration, bug fixes plus updated Movie Studio, Music, Movies and widgets.

Android 3.2 sounds pretty cool for the HTC Flyer users - their tablet will finally become compatible with Android 3 Honeycomb, but it will be up to HTC to decide whether to update it or not. Because if HTC Flyer is to get Honeycomb, it will lose the cool HTC Sense UI.

The current Tegra2-based tablets should get the Android 3.2 update in the next few weeks.
