Honeycomb is version 3.0 (up to 3.2 at the moment) of the Android operating system. It was designed specifically for the tablet devices. Versions 3.0 and 3.1 supported screen sizes up to 7 inches, version 3.2 brought support for larger screens as well.
Before Honeycomb was released there were several tablets on the market with Android 2.x installed, or even 1.x version. The majority of them featured versions 2.2 (Froyo) and 2.3 (Gingerbread) and while these devices were quite usable and have shown the potential for the future generations of the tablet computers, Android tablets became a serious working tool with Honeycomb installed. Many new features were introduced in this version of the OS that were also included in the next version called Ice Cream Sandwich (version 4.x). Ice Cream Sandwich is again the combined version for both smartphones and tablets and it is expected that development will go further in this direction (no more separating the two types of devices).
