    Do any of the Honeycomb features carry over to smart-phones? And if so, are any of them not included in Gingerbread?

    Or, is 3.0 exclusive to the smart-phone feature set?

      Ice Cream will merge the two branches. Some of the features like the new notification bar will remain on tablets only, while others will make an appearance on phones too, like the new, streamlined app switching.
      • Hopefully Google Talk VoIP support (with extremely low bandwidth codecs please!) will be along for the ride...

    • Google seems to be pretty vague on things like that. I'm still wondering when they're going to see fit to release Gingerbread for use on the Nexus One. Given that the Nexus phones are essentially theirs to control, I'm not sure why it's taking so long.

        androiddev just posted on Twitter saying that a Gingerbread update - 2.3.3 is rolling to the Nexus S and Nexus One now. Supposedly, it could take a couple of weeks to hit all the devices.

          Correction: It was posted by googlenexus.

          This would imply that there is some merit to the suspicions about Google wanting to fix some things before rolling it out to the Nexus Ones.
          • Well yeah. There were a lot of conspiracy's about the delay, but that was always the only believable one anyway.

  • After finally reaching the mythical level of 11 (and I thought only amps went to 11), it is finally time for a movie and retirement.
