HTC Wildfire, myTouch 3G, and G1 all get Honeycomb Love

March 3, 2011 - Written By Cameron Summerson

Even though it’s been clearly stated that Honeycomb (Android 3.0) is designed for tablets only, it’s inevitable that developers will continue to attempt to port it to phones, right? We’ve already seen a very, very early port of it running (if you can call it that) on the Droid Incredible Desire HD, and Evo 4G; but now the HTC Wildfire, myTouch 3G (Magic), and G1 have their chance at proving that phones can run the newest Google OS.

Developer’s zFr3eak and yohshua over at the XDA forums have – somewhat successfully – ported 3.0 to these older HTC devices as more of a proof of concept and less a functional ROM. This is very much in it’s alpha stages at this point, so don’t expect.. well, anything really, to work like it’s supposed to. The results so far are hit and miss between what works and what doesn’t, but then again, this really is just a novelty.

So if you want to (kind of ) know what it feels like to hold Google’s tablet OS in your hands, head on over to the support threads for the G1, myTouch 3G, or Wildfire and grab it while it’s hot.
