This year, Google finally launched the Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) operating system, which is specially designed for tablets. Before the launch of Android Honeycomb OS, most of the Android tablet were powered by the Android 2.2 (FroYo) OS, which does not suits the need of tablet users. One of such tablet is the Samsung’s Galaxy Tab. It is the Samsung’s first tablet device, which comes with a 7 inch display and runs on the Android 2.2 OS.
Even though, the recently launched Galaxy Tab 8.9 and Galaxy Tab 10.1 runs on the Android Honeycomb OS, the original 7 inch Galaxy Tab will never get the Android 3.0 OS. This is a bad news for the Galaxy Tab users, but it has not stopped the developers at XDA to test the Android Honeycomb on the original Galaxy Tab.
Spacemoose1 at XDA has recently ported the Android Honeycomb to the Samsung’s 7 inch Galaxy Tab. Currently, some important features are not working properly, but he is very close to having a working version of the Honeycomb on the original Galaxy Tab. Most of the features are working properly, but the touchscreen and Wi-Fi are not working at the moment. To learn more, head over to this thread at XDA and keep a track on the development.
