Honeycomb Easter Egg: a Bee From Tron? [Updated]

Remember the weird zombie painting that was hidden away in Gingerbread? Turns out the Android team has hidden a similar Easter Egg in Honeycomb, and it’s already been found by folks digging around in the SDK preview released today. If you have the means to get 3.0 running in the emulator, you can find the image you see above by going to the About Phone settings and repeatedly hitting Android Version.

Presumably the same will hold true once you get your hands on a real Honeycomb-powered tablet. In the mean time, if you’re like me, this will become your phone’s wallpaper right away.

Update: The same Tron-bee shows up in the set of wallpapers included with Honeycomb, available as a zip file in the Android Central forums.

    I’d rather say it’s the play on the new holographic theme designed for the Honeycomb release.

    Anyway, someone here is suffering from the attentional bias. ;-)

      Do a Google image search on “gingerbread android zombie” and you’ll find it.

    I’m running a mod based on cyanogen and its got a different picture for the android version number, as well as the cyanogen version. The cyanogen one is a huge duck head coming out of a boat in a sunset lit bay.
