Images appear of Honeycomb on HTC Flyer
It was only a couple of days ago that a RUU (ROM update utility) leaked online that contained an early build of Android Honeycomb to the HTC Flyer, but now the guys over at XDA have turned that RUU into a flashable ROM.

The screenshots show what Honeycomb looks on the HTC Flyer with the Sense user interface. It is very similar looking to the HTC Jetstream currently available on AT&T. At the moment, this ROM is not quite ready to get pushed out to Flyer owners everywhere. However, it is nice to see that it is possible in the future.

When this ROM becomes available will any of you HTC Flyer owners jump at the chance to put it on your tablet? Keep in mind that you would have to root it if you want to get Honeycomb prior to any official releases. Check out the screenshots and tell us what you think in the comments below.

i think HTC's skinning of Honeycomb looks really bad...

I agree... I much prefer the Asus look or just the stock honeycomb... The bubbly look doesn't match to well with honeycomb's edgy style

No.It's almost perfect, because it is minimal.

i'm a big fan of minimalistic looks myself but the icons just don't sit together well. a good example of a good looking Honecomb interface is what's on the Eee Pad Transformer or even TWUX on the 10.1 is better looking than that.

I think this is still a work-in-progress. Kind of like beta code. The look of this edition of Sense compared to what is available on the EVO 3D seems - preliminary?

I dont like it I can deal with touchwiz honeycomb but htc needs to chill on such heavy customization on their devices. Honeycomb looks and performs well enough on its own.
