Well this is interesting. A crafty hacker was messing around with some of his configuration files and tried tinkering with the LCD density on his Honeycomb tablet. When setting it to anything above 160, he was met with a very interesting result – the tablet-friendly Honeycomb interface transforms into the Gingerbread interface.

We’re not exactly sure why Google left bits of ginger inside Honeycomb and why it was so easy to uncover, but we aren’t complaining. And we can’t imagine any of you will have any real use for this, but it’s always nice to uncover peculiar stuff. Check it out in the video above. Use LCDDensity for Root on any rooted Honeycomb tablet to try it yourself. [Engadget]
