Yesterday, we discussed the second part of our tech giants coming to the west series with Huawei. What people may not know, however, is that Huawei owns a company by the name of HiSilicon. Hisilicon's processor department may not be the most popular in the west but their technology is impressive, with year on year improvements being easily seen. In the coming years, manufacturers such as Qualcomm may have to face the fact that there are other companies just as able...
Honeycomb 3D Style for Android Updated
XDA member moneymike55 presents this nice theme set for your Android/cm7 device, which will grace your device with a Honeycomb look. The themes come in 3 different flavors to choose from. The member has provided Blue 3D icons, 3D icons w/ mock soft buttons, and a tablet version, which is currently a work in progress. This amazing work done by several developers is still in progress but fully usable if you want to have that new look on your device. It was designed for MDPI devices, but seems to work well on HDPI. You must have the “Theme Chooser” application installed.
Please let the devs know your comments and thoughts.

The Honeycomb 3D Project
A fully colored, “eye candy” style Honeycomb theme for all Android/cm7 devices with the new Theme Chooser application. This theme is based off bypass’s aosp 3.0 ROM port and hax’s “templatebread” with every stock gingerbread menu/settings/widget/app/status bar icon replaced with high-resolution 3D images from Honeycomb, Sense, MIUI, UOT, XDA and Google.
I have spent hundreds of hours throughout the last few months perfecting this theme and its still far from being finished, but I’ve recently started working with zexcrazy (the creator of “Animated Eye Candy”) who has done a ton of work helping me recompile the theme, fix the xml/.9 pngs, and optimize the files for mdpi; bkmo who has been compiling everything on linux and creating the new dialer, lockscreen, thin blue volume sliders, call screen and zipthemer addons; jjhiza who is creating the mock Honeycomb widgets, dock icons and homescreen layout; and nbeebe24 who got the xml files working for 1% battery increments. Without the incredible amount of free time these guys have dedicated to help me out, this theme wouldnt be anywhere near the level its currently at. I would also like to thank the entire Yoshi team who has been helping out by testing beta releases and giving advice when I get stuck, and haxzamatic for providing the template and guides for the new theme engine.
