CES: Android Honeycomb to require dual-core processors


Although Google hasn’t confirmed hardware specifications for its tablet-optimized version of Android (a.k.a., Honeycomb), reports from hardware manufacturers out of this week’s Consumer Electronics Show are confirming rumors that Honeycomb will require dual-core processors. This shouldn’t be a problem for many of the tablets being announced this week with everything from dual-core Atom processors to Nvidia Tegra 2 chips to Qualcomm’s dual-core Snapdragons making appearances.
