Prototype Tablet

We all expected Andy Rubin (the man at Google behind the Android project) to talk Gingerbread at tonight's All Things D's Dive into Mobile conference keynote, but nobody expected to see a prototype Motorola tablet, running Honeycomb.  Not many details were given, but the tablet lacks physical buttons, and was shown running the upcoming Maps application.  When asked about Honeycomb, Rubin stated that a new API was added that allows any application to split its views into multiple panes.  On a tablet, they could be side by side, and on a phone in series one after the other.
