Google had made it clear that Android 3.0 Honeycomb is meant for tablets, and some features of Honeycomb will make it to the mobile version of Android, in the future updates. However, this did not stop the developers from porting the Honeycomb SDK to phones like the Desire HD and the EVO 4G.

Now, another favorite phone of the modding community the HD2 has also got the Honeycomb love from the developers. The developers worked day and night to port the Honeycomb SDK to the HD2. As usual, not everything works but this port will be able to give HD2 owners a taste of Honeycomb.

Below is a video of the Honeycomb SDK port running on the HD2 :

Mobile data, SD card slot, graphics hardware acceleration and the hardware buttons work fine, and everything else including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and camera is currently in a work-in-progress state.

The HTC HD2 was released at the end of 2009 running Windows 6.5. Since then, the phone has been hacked to run all the different flavors of Android including Froyo and Gingerbread. Developers have also managed to get WP7 and Ubuntu running on the handset!
