Two Android Operating Systems!?

I already think there are too many different versions of Android and associated software stacks for Android’s long-term good, then I read that Google may be supporting be supporting “two parallel [Android] software paths for tablets.” Ack! No! Just no!

It seems that the forthcoming Android Honeycomb will require a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor, such as the NVIDIA Tegra 2 chip, to work. I can buy that. It’s tough luck for anyone using a Samsung Galaxy Tab or a Dell Streak, but that’s life on the bleeding edge of technology.
