Google gears up to give tablet makers Android 3.2

Motorola already has it, apparently

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Android tablet makers will get their mitts on Honeycomb 3.2 at the end of the month, possibly maybe early August instead, it has been claimed.

To be fair, it's not Google that's saying so, rather the inevitable moles within Taiwan's contract manufacturing community, who say that's what the tablet makers themselves are anticipating.

So a friend of a friend of Google has said so based on what their friend told them its other friend might have said.

Take your sodium chloride appropriately.

But don't forget, too much salt is bad for you, and scepticism should be tempered by the knowlege that Motorola, Google's best Honeycomb chum, has started rolling out 3.2 for its Xoom tablet in the States.

Alas there's still no word on when non-US Xooms will get Android 3.1, let alone 3.2. Hopefully, that's a sign they will skip a release and go direct to 3.2.

The timing of the Motorola release suggest the Taiwanese moles are correct, and other vendors will be pushing out 3.2 updates - or, at least, new tablets with the new OS, such as Huawei's 7in MediaPad - from mid-Q3 onwards. ®
