Google Making Android Presentation on February 2

Google has started to send out invitations to an Android-themed event, scheduled for Groundhog Day. The company promises “an in-depth look at Honeycomb”, but will it have any news to announce?

We’re certainly anxious to hear just what’s going on with the Android 2.x / Android 3.0 split, and hoping to see how the changes made to accommodate tablets will be reconciled with smartphones. While we’d absolutely love an update on Google’s plans for Android 2.4, it’s not clear if this event will provide that kind of news, or just bring all the recent Android developments together and show off some Honeycomb features.

Google is setting up a live webfeed for the event, so if you’re like us and want to keep up with the show as everything’s going down, you’ll be able to follow along through the Android YouTube channel. The main presentation kicks off at 10AM PST on February 2.

Any guesses for what we could hope to see from the event? With the Android 3.0 buzz in full swing, there’s the potential for things to go a little tablet-crazy, so let’s hope Google still shows some smartphone love.
