Honeycomb Tablets have Gingerbread Inside

Now here’s something odd. It seems Google have left traces of Android Gingerbread within their tablet-optimized OS, Honeycomb.

No one has the faintest idea about the reasons Google might’ve had for this move, or why such a simple tweak could uncover it. If you want to try it out yourself, you’ll have to root your tablet and use an app called LCD Density for Root and change the density level.
