MWC 2011: Android Honeycomb to get Movie Studio video editing abilities

Google, Mobile phones, MWC 2011, Tech Digest news

Honeycomb tablets will soon be getting a movie editing software suite, Google’s Eric Schmidt has revealed at the company’s MWC 2011 keynote.

Called Movie Studio, the app was shown running on a Xoom tablet, and appears to be tailored to larger devices rather than smartphones, as is the Honeycomb OS itself. All basic cutting and pasting controls look set for inclusion, as well as some more advanced controls to touch up the picture using filters and effects.

Being a Google app, integration with YouTube is a dead cert, which will handily coincide with the news that YouTube video upload speeds are to get a boost too.
