    It's for tablets so it won't be awesome at all - from what I've seen you'll have tiny icons and a very buggy OS

    Better to go for 2.3

    I think its a pointless venture personally, for the reasons Eddy stated. Apparently there is the ability to support smaller resolutions, but whether they can optimise this and gert the rom stable, I am not sure.

    Well as you said, everyone is entitled to their opinions. I think its pointless and I am allowed to think that. Why would I want a Tablet operating system on my phone when I already have the latest phone operating system and when the next one comes out, i'll have that too.

    These devs are doing it for fun and yes, of course it might be possible but at the end of the day, its a good thing for them to do to further advance their knowledge, but please dont be disillusioned that you will get a stable tablet operating system on your phone before 2.4. It will be a huge job porting it over and getting all the drivers working efficiently (especially when these drivers will not be made by HTC or google for the nexus 1 / desire)

    Ice Cream Sarnie (or whatever) is said to bring the Honeycomb benefits to phones amongst other things. I'd imagine we'll get a fully functioning version of that on our phones before Honeycomb.

    That said, as has already been mentioned, these people that work away on these projects for our benefits may discover new functions and abilities that could trickle down the custom roms they produce so 'crack on' I say!

    Its still pointless for us end users to try running it on our phones.
