Millions of Android phone owners denied Honeycomb update?

High spec system requirements could spell disappointment for masses of Fandroids, comments from an industry insider suggest.

According to Bobby Cha, MD of South Korea-based electronics company Enspert, Android device owners who want to get onboard with the update will need dual core processors. Cha also told PCMag that you’ll also require a screen with an HD resolution of 1280x720, ruling out anything Android powered with a low-end display in one fell swoop.

As for the processors, no Android phone or tablet currently fits the criteria that Google is reputedly enforcing. In fact, the only chip sets on the market that do are the Cortext A-9 ARM dual core numbers.

Google has yet to comment on matters. But for what it’s worth we’re far from convinced about this tale’s veracity.

That’s principally because after catching no end of flak over fragmentation problems caused by problems with Android phones, we’d be amazed if Google was prepared to risk a repeat with tablets.
