RumorTT: Android 2.4 slated for April? Viewsonic ViewPad 4 to get its ride pimped?

With this news, it confirms that Android 2.4 is ready for release quicker than most expected and the reason for this is to ensure that dual-core apps designed for Honeycomb (3.0) will work with single-cored devices running 2.4 - perfect! Supposedly this is not possible with version 2.3 which is why there is the requirement of 2.4 needing to be fast-tracked.

 

Aside from Android 2.4, the ViewPad 4 will have quite the powerful punch in terms of specs... including, flash 10.1, have HD 720p video recording, playback, upload, and mini-HDMI 720p display output. There's a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera, Bluetooth 2.1 and 802.11 b/g/n wireless connectivity. You'll also get a 4.1-inch screen for your trouble.
