There have been conflicting reports as to whether Honeycomb would come to market as Android 2.4 or Android 3.0, but now it looks like the argument has been settled by eLocity. In the process of announcing their new lineup of Android-powered tablet devices, the company touted the fact that they would "will run the Flash-enabled Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) OS." Besides Honeycomb, eLocity's A10 line of tablets will feature 10-inch displays, Tegra 2 processors (just like we heard was required), front-facing cameras, and "the highest screen resolution within the mobile tablet category." They'll be available for preorder beginning January 17th, but the full press release is available for your perusal down right now.
While knowing which version number Honeycomb will end up as isn't the biggest deal in the world, there is one perk to knowing the final version once and for all: we could end up seeing another version of Gingerbread hit at some point in the future as 2.4. As for eLocity, it looks like they could have a pretty solid selection of tablets coming up, although we'll have to see the full spec lists and prices before making a final judgment. Good thing that we'll be learning more soon at a little event called CES.
