The Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb user interface definitely looks more like a desktop UI than a strictly mobile one, as you can rock multiple widgets and apps on a single page. The Android 3.0 Honeycomb UI is also filled with many little transition animations and graphical flourishes.

Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb is also offering what it calls a best-in-class mobile browsing experience and that may be more important as you gain more screen size. The company is also pushing its eBooks service to make these devices strong competitors to dedicated e-readers like the Kindle.

The Gmail app already rocks on phones but Android 3.0 Honeycomb will bring a experience that’s optimized for the tablet. This looks to include dual-pane modes that aren’t much different than what Apple does with the Mail app on the iPad.

Android 3.0 Honeycomb will also join the mobile video chatting party by letting you use the front-facing camera to video chat with other Google Talk users. This, along with Facetime and Skype, we could start to see video chatting hit the mainstream.
