Android 3.0 Honeycomb Shown on Droid Incredible

Advertisement

Before you get too excited, know that what you’re about to see is highly experimental, and it doesn’t work too well. An industrious Droid Incredible owner has managed to port pre-release Honeycomb onto his device. While most things don’t work, this begs the question: if you could, would you install Honeycomb onto your phone? You’d get the benefits of the new tablet-friend OS: the new notification system, a better multitasking UI, improved homescreen management, and much more. Surely in due time after we get the AOSP release of the final version of Honeycomb, we’re likely to see Honeycomb ROMs for smartphone devices (you know, just for fun). Since Honeycomb for tablets is made for larger screens, you’ll have to be running it on a smartphone with a bigger screen…perhaps a Desire HD or Droid X. The trouble with running Honeycomb for tablets on a smartphone is that the phone function might not be there; as far as we know, there’s no dialer in Honeycomb yet.
