    Some savvy developers are working hard on porting Android 3.0/Honeycomb to the older Advent Vega Android Tablet. Right now the hardest part for devs is to get hardware acceleration working between Honeycomb and older hardware. Without this hardware acceleration, any transitions cause the device to slow down considerably. They are very close to making it work fully on the Vega, and it will assist them for other older devices too. Here's a quote from the SlashGear article with some more details.

    this is also being very closely following and monitored by Roebeet and some of our members in the Viewsonic G-Tablet forum. Since we share architectures this bodes well for Honeycomb on the G-Tablet. In fact, there is an Alpha out there already called honeycream for the G-Tablet.
