Developers prove Honeycomb runs on low-end devices, ported to HTC G1, Magic and Wildfire

Remember all those rumors saying Honeycomb would require this hardware or that, dual core or certain screen size? And that it was for tablets only? Yeah, we remember too. So far there’s only a handful of devices running Honeycomb out of the box, but that never stops developers from porting it to other devices. Starting with the Nook Color, then we saw it on the HTC EVO, Incredible and HD2.

Now it’s hitting some low-end devices, including the very first Android phone, the T-Mobile G1. It’s also been ported to the HTC Magic, known as the MyTouch 3G here in the US, and the HTC Wildfire.

Yes, it’s much more of a proof of concept rather than a fully functional ROM, and as expected a lot of bits don’t work. But it’s impressive nonetheless. Check out the video below showing the Honeycomb port on the G1/Magic.
