Here's a little something to tide you over while you're waiting for CES: eLocity today made no fewer than seven Tegra 2-powered Honeycomb tablets official.

While the company hasn't publicized many details about the devices yet (they say in-depth specifications will be available at CES), here's what we do know:

  • All of them are members of the A10 line
  • They will feature "high-resolution" multitouch displays
  • They will be powered by dual-core Tegra 2 processors
  • They will include microSD card slots as well as USB ports and an HDMI port capable of 1080p output
  • They will ship with a front-facing camera

While this is all very exciting, there's another item of interest here: the press release consistently refers to Honeycomb as "Android 3.0," despite the previous information we had indicating that Honeycomb would be version 2.4. Our guess is that 3.0 is an OS for tablets, while 2.4 will be an OS for phones. Or, you know, eLocity could just be wrong. Either way, CES can't come soon enough!

The full press release follows:

    My money is burning a hole in my bank account, waiting for -the- tablet to come out. I like the sound of this one. I hope it hurries the hell up.

    This is a small thing to argue on, but there is no way that Honeycomb will be 2.4. It just doesn't make sense for such a huge upgrade. Honeycomb is suppose to have a completely revamped UI. That does not sound like a .1 upgrade to me. That doesn't even sound like an upgrade to 2.5. Also, what you said about 2.4 possibly being for phones is only slightly off. 3.0 is for phones and tablets, but there was a rumor a while back that they would have a different version of android for low end android phones. Mark my words. Honeycomb will be 3.0!
