No sir you are wrong over here, check this out Android 3.0 HoneyComb has no minimum Hardware Requirements | androidnews.co.in

That was a rumor which has been squashed by Android Tech Lead and also by Sony Ericssion.

So we can hope of running Honeycomb on our respective phones.

That tweet was a reply to a query about whether Android 3.0 would work on samsung galaxy tab.The android 3.0 intro at CES specified that it was specifically build for tablets.why would they do that if there were plans to bring it onto smartphones?

Well, phones won't be running Honeycomb, at least, not in the way tablets will. A lot of the UI stuff will probably not translate to phones, so less powerful graphics and processing chips could still run it in a "phone-friendly" version. Tablets will need to be running fairly powerful hardware to take full advantage of the honeycomb features

Processor wise hardware may be same but the Screen Size and resolution makes difference Honeycomb is targeted to tablets.

I do agree that it is targeted for tablets but as long as we have xda developers and cyanogemod we can hope of running Honeycomb on our Androids

I have been using it for a while now and it works like a charm except for a few minor glitches! It's way better than Brut maps.
Tried all steps mentioned in the site, but while trying to register in MapsIndia it is throwing error that Key is invalid. also some of the message and the next and back buttons are not visible (need to assume and click). Any clues on how this can be resolved (saw posts in the thread on the same set of errors, but no solution is mentioned)..

Well, I faced the same problem (visibility of buttons) initially. IIRC, I just skipped a step where you replace the language file. With regard to invalid key problem, I can't seem to remember what I did to get it working! Will give you a heads up if I can find an alternative.

Thanks vjabraham, I have got it activated now. After selecting English US as the language option (was selecting English UKearlier) text and buttons started appearing. Once that was done I could get the device ID and create the key and get it activated. Yet to try whether the maps are working since GPS signal is not available in my current location.

@vjabraham

Can you kindly post the links for other parts of the file?
http://hotfile.com/dl/67609284/cd3d0...part1.rar.html This is part 1, require other parts
While I try to extract it asks for Part2.

The HD is a clear winner in my eyes, the only thing I felt the HD lags behind is the area of updates. Already the S is running 2.3 where as the HD is at 2.2.

On online forums like rimweb, I saw a lot of people who buy a high end CDMA android phone from HTC etc., then unlock(root) it and use it on reliance/Tata in India.
How reliable is such rooting and usage.
Such phones cost 100$ locked in US, and after paying a 200$ early termination fee you can have the top end phone for 300-350$ total(as opposed to 30K price of GSM variant in India).

Anybody here done this?
