Turn Your Galaxy Tab Into A Honeycomb Tablet… Cosmetically.

Theming. modifying. changing. It’s what we all love to do, and when we find a way of making the unconventional and improbable a reality, that’s when we all get the most excited. The unconventional and improbable in this case is the ability to make Android 2.3 really look like an imitation of Honeycomb, rather than implimenting just the colours and icons.

XDA member jjhiza has made this possible by posting a rather straight forward, easy to follow, yet indepth guide to making your Galaxy Tab look like it’s running Honeycomb, including the functionality of the widgets.

Why is this better than trying to port over Honeycomb entirely? Well, it makes it easier for those who are not developers, like me. But if you’re a little more hardcore than I am, I’d recommend putting some work into this. It would really be amazing.

If you own a Galaxy Tab and you’d like to give this a whirl, head on over to the original thread!

From favoring their inhouse Exynos 7 SoC over the Snapdragon 810 SoC (which ended up causing issues to its main rival); to ditching the removable battery and micro sd card slot in favor of a more "premium" device, the flagship duo have a lot going on for them at this stage. Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
