At the Droidcon conference in Berlin this week, an LG spokesperson allegedly stated that Google is expressly disallowing the customization of Android 3.0 Honeycomb because they want the new platform to gain an identity of its own first. (I like that, by the way.) So we have a bit of a problem: either Samsung didn’t get the memo and have violated whatever terms Google supposedly set, or the LG spokesperson is just flat-out lying. Or maybe they dreamt it. Who knows? I hope the spokesperson isn’t met with a pink slip when he returns to his office after his boss finds out Samsung – their homeland competitor – did what they thought they couldn’t. If you haven’t seen what Samsung’s done to Honeycomb be sure to check out our hands-on video. [via The Unwired]
