    Honeycomb is a tablet only release that ran concurrently with gingerbread. Ice cream sandwich reunifies the tablet and phone versions. I don't think there should be a honeycomb ROM.

    Like Wampa1 said, Honeycomb is tablet only so you will never see it on a phone. ICS would be the next upgrade from Gingerbread.

    Ok, so if I'm reading this correctly, the phone ROMs will skip over honeycomb and go directly to ICS? Is that right? If so, has there been any further information to date, if the Thunderbolt will work with it?

    Ice Cream Sandwich is designed for both phones and tablets. Plus, if I recall correctly, Google never released the source for Honeycomb because they didn't want people trying to force it onto phones.

    I believe the ROM developers are working on porting ICS to the TB right now. I would guess one of the first versions will be Cyanogenmod 9 (CM6 was froyo, CM7 is gingerbread, CM8 would have been honeycomb and CM9 will be ICS).

    its not ice cream sandwich. it has elements of ice cream sandwich integrated into gingerbread. I am sure it is fun to run, and I have downloaded it however I haven't installed it.

    It's not going to be as solid and bug free as the gingerbread roms at the moment.

    ice cream sandwich itself does exist for the thunderbolt, it isn't out of alpha though.

    Honeycomb was designed for tablets only. Some visual elements of Honeycomb have been brought into ICS, so in some ways they do look similar. As far as I know, no Android phones have run Honeycomb.

    officially, no
    un-officially, you betcha, but a tablet UI on such a small screen sucked and just wasn't worth it.

    anyway, ICS ports are on the way. basically everything is working besides the radio (DATA and calls/text ect) and camera. last port i tried, Wifi, BT, HW acceleration, SD card read/write all worked. it was fun to play with.

    the devs are waiting HTC to release the source for one of thier LTE phones (rezound is probably one of the first in line) before we will get the other bits to work. they are trying their hardest (thanks DEVs!!) to get it working but it isn't looking good just yet.

    Honeycomb was never released to AOSP so devs never had the source code. Google has admitted it was a hack to get a tablet out. ICS is AOSP and therefore the source code is available. So as stated above a few devs have working ports. But they need radio code to get data working and that is hard to do. May not happen until they have a HTC LTE radio interface layer (ril) for an ICS build to refer to.

    Keep in mind that even though HC was never open sourced it changed a lot and ICS is a major release on top of that. So its 2 full generations ahead of GB.

    downloaded it & ran it for about 2 hours---it's not even noticeable ICS.
    i still thought i was on the GB version of the ROM.

    not worth it (for ICS features). nothing aesthetically changes.
