Android Honeycomb's Mesmerizing Bootup Screen

Earlier this week we posted an extensive preview of Android Honeycomb, the tablet version of Google’s mobile OS that will start shipping on devices later this month. But we saved one more tasty bit of Honeycomb for the weekend: the OS’s bootup screen.

It looks like something out of Tron, and it’s a nice departure from the boot animation seen on the Nexus One and Nexus S, which features swirling strands of color coming together to form the Nexus ‘X’ symbol (you can watch it below).

Apologies for the glare — this wasn’t shot under ideal circumstances.
