Last night, Andy Rubin appeared at AllThingsD's D: Dive Into Mobile conference and, to everyone's surprise, demoed not a Gingerbread, but a Honeycomb Motorola tablet, which ran on a next generation dual-core processor. If you want to read more about the demo, head over to our report from yesterday; however, if you want to jump right into action and see the demo in all its glory, AllThingsD just posted a full 9-minute video of Andy's interview for everyone's enjoyment.

The new Google Maps, the absence of hardware buttons (which make it impossible to "hold it wrong"), and the very much refined Honeycomb interface are all there:

    Honeycomb looks slick... although the performance of the maps app didn't seem great. I like the last line at the end of the video.

      "This thing is like, literally, $10,000" - ha. Prototypes are expensive ;-]

    Wow, this looks promising. Honeycomb looks very slick (love the transitions), Google Maps 5 gorgeous (vectorial ftw) and Gmail very nice on that cool Moto Tablet. Can't wait to see more of this !

    Who are those old people on the set with Andy? They remind me of my Aunt and Uncle who can't even operate their DVD player.

      Erm, that's Kara and Walt - the founders of All Things Digital, organizers of the whole Dive Into Mobile conference, and overall very tech savvy journalists.

        They seem to love Apple. They keep sayin Apple this, Apple that.

        • Pierre

          Agreed. The way they keep asking "would it be available on other device than Android ones ?"

  • Neil Phillips
