There was a familiar rumor floating around the Android world that Google has minimum hardware requirements for Honeycomb (3.0). The same rumor went around when we first heard about Gingerbread, but were quickly squandered by Googlers with inside knowledge of the situation. That is exactly why we were skeptical this time around when we heard that there were strict requirements for manufacturers; it turns out we were right to be suspicious.
Dan Morrill, who works for the Android team, tweeted confirmation that there are no minimum hardware requirements. So there you have it folks, no requirements from Google, just false rumors starting from misinformation. [Twitter]
