Default Gingerbread Android Tablets have Honeycomb UI on them

Pocketables reports modder Graffix0214 has discovered that bumping the pixel density (ppi) from 160 to higher than 170 will transform your rooted Honeycomb tablet into a Gingerbread tablet. You can use ‘LCDDensity for Root’ to tweak the dpi and toggle back and forth between Honeycomb and Gingerbread as much as you like.

I thought this was interesting. All of a sudden, the 7" Android tablets have quite a lot more value in my eye...
