We were very pleased with the performance of the Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system that we saw in Barcelona during MWC 2011. Thus it gives us great pleasures to inform you that the platform has finally reached smartphones, as the folks of Mobilissimo.ro recently discovered. We’re talking about a port right now, that brings Honeycomb to HTC Desire.
The OS has already been tested on a HTC Desire unit by Iancu Cosmin Cristian (@wackydj), the tipster of this information and the author of the images included in this article. Photo evidence isn’t enough these days, so let’s see what functions are available on this Honeycomb port done by XDA Developers.
Here’s a list of the functions that you’ll be using on HTC Desire, thanks to Honeycomb:
- 3D acceleration
- mobile data connection
- sending and receiving text messages
- CM7 gallery
The source we mentioned before has managed to test Honeycomb on the HTC Desire and everything seems to work perfectly, although the port job is in its early stages. Now let’s see other compatible devices. Samsung smartphones maybe?
