Android Honeycomb has hidden Gingerbread interface, enabled by higher LCD density -- Engadget
Google's already indicated that tablets and smartphones won't be sharing the same Android build until Ice Cream Sandwich in Q4, though interestingly enough, it turns out that the tablet-friendly Honeycomb actually has Gingerbread's interface quietly tucked underneath. According to modder Graffix0214, all you need for making the jump is one simple tweak in a system file: assuming you already have root access, use your preferred method -- Pocketables recommends the LCDDensity for Root app -- to change the LCD density value to 170 or higher to emulate a smaller, denser display. After a reboot, you should then see some Gingerbread love as demoed by Graffix0214's video after the break; and likewise, set the value to 160 or lower to roll back. It sure is nice to have an option, eh?
Only on rooted but looks weird

Its big, its ugly...but a cool little treat. You can view this in the SDK emulator, too.
ROM: Honeycomb 3.0.1
My precious is lost and alone out there in this big, scary world. I hope she gets home soon, and safely.
saw one or two reports of bricking with people who changed their lcd density. so be careful!
Oh god, why would you do this

I was just about to as the same thing. It's a nice little fact, but still..........why?
