Android Honeycomb 3.2 coming this summer, will support 7-inch screens, Qualcomm processors

Huawei recently announced its new 7-inch MediaPad, claiming it was the world’s first Android 3.2 tablet. The slab has a nice array of specs to be sure — an IPS display, dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm processor, and 1.3 / 5 megapixel cams — but that Android version number is the most interesting of the list. After all, Android 3.1 just launched a few weeks ago and Ice Cream Sandwich will arrive sometime in Q4. Well, believe it: according to three independent sources, Android 3.2 will be the last Honeycomb point upgrade before Google opens up the Ice Cream Sandwich freezer, and it will indeed run on a “range” of screen sizes, meaning that proper 7-inch Android tablets are about to become a reality.Android Honeycomb 3.2 will come with a range of new features, including support for multiple display sizes including 7 inch tablets, and it will also offer support for Qualcomm processors as well as NVIDIA Tegra 2 processors.It would appear that existing Android 3.1 tablets, like the Motorola Xoom will get the Android 3.2 update over the next few weeks, and it will then be rolled out to other tablets, including 7 inch ones over the summer.
