Google Music to launch with Android Honeycomb?

Google Music -- the big G's alternative to iTunes -- could very well launch alongside Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Today at MWC 2011 in Barcelona, Motorola Mobility CEO Sanjay Jha spoke about the soon-to-be-launched $800 Motorola Xoom, which will be one of the first devices to run Honeycomb. More importantly, Jha may have confirmed that the Android upgrade will be accompanied by a music service.

"If you look at Google Mobile services, there's a video service, there's a music service -- that is, there will be a music service," he said. We presume he's referring to YouTube when he says video service -- unless Google has something else up its sleeve -- and the music service might be the backend for the non-working streaming function we saw in the leaked Android Music app back in December 2010. Jha went on to say that the value of the Honeycomb update is the addition of these video and music services, so it'll be interesting to see if he really did let Google's cat out of the bag in Spain.
