The Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system is something that targets tablets as it was specially optimized for that range of devices, but that doesn’t mean it cannot see action on other platforms, right? Here is a Gingerbread update for the Samsung Galaxy S, where it hasn’t been made official just yet although XDA-Developers are already offering a way to get your hands on it – unofficially, of course. This build hails from Samsung directly, where it has been given the TouchWiz 3 skin while sporting a functional Android Market, Swype capability and GPS navigation support. Right now, the Android 2.3.2 Gingerbread build plays nice only with the Samsung Galaxy S I9000 (European version), although there is a chance of developers porting the ROM to the US variants which dot the American landscape where the Galaxy S line is concerned.
