Android Honeycomb Will Require Dual-Core Processor

Rumors are hinting that Android 2.4 (AKA Honeycomb), will require a dual-core processor to function. As well as needing a dual-core processor, we also hear that a resolution of at least 1280 x 720 pixels will be needed.

One dual-core processor that could be used by manufacturers is the NVIDIA Tegra 2 chip that is beginning to be used in tablets at the moment.

The rumors also suggest that Honeycomb will also be made available for lower end devices as a different version and that this low end version will only require a regular processor to function.

What we personally think is that Google will make just one version of Honeycomb to prevent fragmentation and that it will run on regular processors without dual-core being an absolute requirement. We think it will be just recommended rather than required.

What are your thoughts?
