Google is set to announce their first tablet-oriented Android operating system, codenamed Honeycomb. At Box, we’ve been waiting for this moment since we started seeing significant traction with our apps for both the iPad and Android phones, with nearly 400,000 downloads to date. With the introduction of Honeycomb, we’ll begin working immediately on a tablet-centric version of our Box Android app.

I love my iPad. I hate my iPad. Was preparing to dump it for the Samsung Galaxy Tab, until it turned out to be a 7”-er now. Size matters, after all (or is it just my eyes?). So I got momentarily excited reading about the HP Slate 500 but that was a short moment. The [...]
