Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) has been available since early 2011. Unfortunately, the initial Android tablets based on Android 3.x were not well accepted in the market.

Android 4.0 brings together features from the phone and tablet in much the same way that the Apple iPad and iPhone operating systems were separate until iOS 4.2.
