it already is a mini tablet... not really understanding what your asking. you want your home screen in landscape? adw launcher will do that. you want honeycomb? your outta luck but you could probably find a launcher on the market to make it look like honeycomb.

First off, why?

What is your reasoning for this idea? Just curious. I mean it's a phone so use it like a phone. You want a tablet just go buy one.

I mean what does a tablet have that your phone doesn't have that would also be possible to do or add to the phone?

Makes sense now. I thought you wanted to somehow turn your phone into a tablet. Lol making the launcher look like one is different do that makes sense.

You could change to roboto font, and maybe reorganize the settings to how they are in ics
Also you could pull the legit ics holo ui wallpaper
