Smartphones to get a 'lite' version of Honeycomb? Android 3.0 Honeycomb, the first version of the software to be optimized for tablets, may eventually hit smartphones as a 'lite' version of itself, says Phandroid.
Honeycomb was coded from scratch for tablets, but there are a number of important features that can be ported to upcoming firmware updates for Android versions of the operating system.

Google recently launched Android 2.3 Gingerbread for smartphones, which integrated minor updates.

However, according to the new reports, Google has already begun building new code for a 'lite' version of Honeycomb for smartphones, which may add hardware acceleration, RenderScript and a fully updated notification system.

Furthermore, the new camera UI will likely get ported, as well.

The update isn't expected until at least the Q3.
