Google Releases 2010 Projection of Android Tablets; Shows Early UI for Honeycomb

by Reads (1,645)

A 2010 presentation by the current Senior Vice President of Google, Andy Rubin, showed that the company was fairly optimistic about the forecast for Android and also displayed an early version of what became known as the Android Honeycomb OS (3.0).

In 2011 and 2012, Google projected to sell about 10 million Android tablets each year, capturing up to a third of the entire tablet market. In addition, they expected Android tablets to contribute up to $110 million in search revenue in 2011 and $220 million in 2012.

The presentation, which was revealed yesterday during the Google/Oracle trial, also included slides of some early UI designs for the Honeycomb operating system. The slides show that the widgets and iconography are much more cartoon-like than the final design.
