    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.

    Everything looks smaller on yours fuzzy but you see how a tablet kinda has more space for things

    Yeah i was mainly wandering if there was anything different that i could use and port over. Visual wise. Apps and launchers im good on. I wouldn't give up Holo for anything, except cm9 of course.
