Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb is expected to hit the street soon, with Motorola XOOM as one of the first devices to run the tablet-optimized operating system. The folks at TechCrunch recently spent some time playing with the XOOM, and one of the apps they foun don the tablet which I hadn’t really seen much of before is called Movie Studio. As you might expect, it’s a video editor designed for Android tablets.

About halfway through the hands-on video after the break, you can see TechCrunch’s Jason Kincaid demonstrate Movie Studio. You can use the app to add titles, transitions, and other digital effects to videos recorded on your device. There’s circle on the left for zooming in and out of the timeline, which is a lot like the physical dial you might find on pro video hardware.

The video editor may also be able to run on devices with smaller displays such as smartphones, but it’s a good example of how Android 3.0 isn’t just optimized for high performance, dual core processors, but also larger displays which give you room for a large number of on-screen controls and other elements.
