Android Honeycomb Gets Caught Tinkering With The Performance Tests

Excellent news, everybody! Google's going to keep working on Android behind the upcoming Gingerbread (v2.3) release! Oh, we know that?

They are most likely going to codename the next build Honeycomb! Oh, we knew that too?

Here is one you possibly did not know: an early build (or 2) of Honeycomb just got spotted in several logs whilst someone (presumably a Google engineer) was testing its Adobe AIR performance.

A little of backstory: Android can run Adobe AIR apps. Adobe developed a tool called AirBenchmark which lets customers test just how well AIR runs on their respective Android handset and send those consequences back to Adobe, so that they know which handsets require work.

From there, we presently gotta dig roughly the results history page to surface some interesting gems. Take this one, e.g. it's at smallest amount according to the data pulled from the handset's ROM, a build of Honeycomb running on a Nexus One. There are at least 2  added builds of Honeycomb in there, also running on the Nexus One.

So what can we collect from this? Fine, it appears like at least one person at Google has Honeycomb up and running on their device but in fact, we possibly could have assumed as much. But, that they are testing it on the Nexus One is excellent news -at least for Nexus One owners. The Nexus One is most probably going to stop getting updates finally but currently,it does not look like Gingerbread will be its last.
