    I'm not sure i'd even want honeycomb, or even if its possible. Its made for tablets, not phones.

    It would be super hard to make it into a rom for the droid. Its made for bigger screens apps react differently to it. It is built from the ground up for tablets and thays what we would have to do for the phones..... there will be a theme for it im guessing

    I say yes - already the Honeycomb Music player has been ported...of course it didn't have the home music to device live stream option functioning - but my guess is we will see more H/C :)

    It won't be tablet only forever - Honeycomb is optimized for dual core - expect it to be on dual core handsets eventually...of course it wont be the tablet version, it will be rewritten for phones -

    regardless if anything out now gets it or not, this statement is what should be the focus... we still need GB before we worry about Honeycomb :)

    If Honeycomb is for tablets everyone is saying I just don't get it... does that mean Android on phones is almost 'discontinued'? Not literally but it seems like the support for it has really dropped in priority.

    It hasn't dropped in priority. I think what it is is that with all of the new phones coming out with all of the different UI's (sense, blur....blah, blah, blah) it becomes hard to push out the newer versions of the OS.

    I can understand that I guess. I'm a huge fan of HTC Sense so that doesn't bother me a whole lot. However I hate blur on the other hand lol.
