User interface

We've seen Google's Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system on the forthcoming Motorola Xoom tablet, but Google has spelled out many more additions and enhancements.

A tasks view gives you a thumbnail image of programs and their matching icons.

Browser

Instead of the Android smartphone browser that treats multiple browser tabs as windows, the Honeycomb browser uses true side-by-side tabs, just like a desktop browser. A new "incognito" mode turns on private surfing. Users can also automatically sign in to Google sites and sync bookmarks with the Chrome desktop browser once they sign in with their account.

Home screens

Icons and widgets comfortably cohabitate on the five customizable screens (pictured.) Instead of just swiping through the five screens, you can get to an overview of them, like a wireframe, to more easily identify and select the one you want.

Text selection

Google has continued to use the new text selection mode it introduced with the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) operating system. With Honeycomb, you can just tap the menu bar to copy, paste, or so on.
