Google unwrapped the Android 3.0 Honeycomb platform today and it looks really cool but it won’t succeed against the Apple iPad unless there is strong app support. We’re happy to hear that Fuze will be bringing its meeting app to the Motorola Xoom and Honeycomb.
The Fuze meeting app is currently available on the iPad and it’s a fresh look at business collaboration. The version for Android 3.0 Honeycomb will land soon and it will feature:
· Multi party video conferencing – with one tap, meeting hosts and attendees can view up to 10 high resolution video streams in the palm of their hands.
· Full hosting abilities – ability to schedule and run a meeting from your Honeycomb device
· Pinch Zoom and iPoint laser technology – Using the unique interface of a tablet, users can tightly control where attendees attention is focused.
The Fuze meeting app for Android 3.0 Honeycomb could help Google’s tablets gain traction in the enterprise market, as it’s a useful tool for workers to hold meetings remotely. Right now, reports suggest that the Apple iPad is dominating the corporate tablet market.
The Fuze meeting app shows that many companies are taking these devices seriously as business tools, as many businesses are testing out the iPad and other devices. We’re expecting many companies to try and compete with Apple for these users.
Along with Android 3.0 Honeycomb devices, the BlackBerry PlayBook will definitely be targeting enterprise users. Research In Motion has the experience with this type of client and it hopes that its tablet will be appealing.
One thing about the PlayBook that we hate and corporate users might love is that there is no native e-mail or calendar client. Instead, users are expected to use their BlackBerry smartphone to connect this and this ensures that no corporate data will be left on the device.
