Video: Motorola tablet running Honeycomb and Maps 5.0

Andy Rubin let loose some great information on upcoming products at the All Things D: Dive into Mobile conference last night. During his interview, he whipped out a dual-core Motorola tablet with NVidia 3D (no name was given, though Stingray seems a likely bet) and it was running Honeycomb, the next major Android release. Rubin used the slick tablet–sans search button–to demonstrate Google Maps for Mobile 5.0, which will be coming to phones in the next several days.

The new Maps features an offline mode and vector graphics as opposed to tiled images, therefore loading much fewer bytes at a much faster rate. Also on the menu are 3D buildings with shadows that adjust for perspective. Rubin also showed off a tablet-optimaized version of GMail that sports a two-column view.
