Just because it involves the word ‘honeycomb,’ it does not mean it has to be yellow.

After the announcement of a Honeycomb event which will happen on Wednesday, Google revealed another surprise; the much-awaited look of the logo.

Now, no need to assume what will the logo of the Android 3.0 would look like. Google redefined the previous thinking of people that the logo would feature a bee and the color yellow. We are correct about the bee, but the color is another story.

Honeycomb Needs Dual Core and 1280×720 Screen To Work

It seems like the hot Honeycomb may only be available to high-end tablets as it makes the grand debut this year.

According to Bobby Cha, managing director of Korean electronics firm Enspert, Google’s new Android Honeycomb tablet OS will require a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 and perhaps a 1280x720p screen in order to work properly. This poses a problem to several Android OS driven tablets available in the market as they lack the necessary processors. As of the moment, only Nvidia’s Tegra 2 platform is capable to include a Cortex-A9, but manufacturers express optimism that they’ll catch up with the new processor architecture this 2011.

Motorola already gave a teaser that their new line of tablets will include the Honeycomb OS. Even though no statement has been released on its hardware details, we’re pretty much sure they have all the right stuff to run the OS if they’re making a huge deal about their new product.

We can only look forward to CES 2011 this week for more details on the matter. But in the meantime, enjoy the Froyo and Gingerbread OS if you’re tablets are only carrying a single core processor.
