SPB Tablet UI, a Custom Honeycomb Launcher Concept

There’s an overload of third-party launchers in the Market, but there’s no custom launcher available for Honeycomb. Of course that’s not strange, considering that the first Honeycomb device, the XOOM, has only be released for a few weeks. Regardless, I’d love to see what developers are going to do with the possibilities Honeycomb offers.

Well, here’s a first glimpse: Android Community has gotten their hands on a concept video of SPB for tablets. What’s even more interesting is that they’re working with OEMs to get this on devices out-of-the-box. Even if it means more fragmentation, I really can’t wait! Want to see what it’ll look and act like? Watch the video after the break.

    How exactly does this mean more fragmentation? If it is only a launcher then it is a self-contained, drop-in replacement application for the stock launcher. It iss no different than downloading a launcher on a pre-3.0 device and setting it as the default. The underlying APIs and framework remain exactly the same as bone stock 3.0.

    Lately I’ve been railing on Android for not “getting” that the user experience, not just specs, is critical to success and mainstream acceptance. That’s the key to Apple’s success. If someone can get Honeycomb to look and operate like this concept video, I’ll be the first in line!

    That looks freakin’ sweet! If it actually comes to be, then I’ll be the first in line for an Android tablet!

    Thanks so much! Really wanted it on my Galaxy S2 but didn’t feel like paying that much for a launcher :)
