You would not want to miss our next Meetup! We will be hosting (he will be at our Image-XL location) prominent Android Author, Speak, and Trainer Mark Murphy. He will be talking about Android Honeycomb, the first version of the Android OS that is optimized for tablets. According to Jason Kincaid of TechCrunch “It’s a solid competitor to iOS — better, even, in some ways. I won’t be at all surprised if we see Honeycomb explode on tablets the way Android has exploded on mobile handsets since the original Droid launched in November 2009”. Will the new wave of Android Tables with Honeycomb out sell the iPad? What new features have they added to Honeycomb? What is so cool about this version of Android? Well, come find out as Mark Murphy gives us his expert views on this topic.
Pizza and drinks will be provided.
