On a side note, Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) is actually the beginning of
Chromium as the base for the Android port. Check out
honeycomb(-release) branch in
and it seems that it is using 9.0.597 for the base.

Remains to be seen whether Android 2.4 (Ice Cream) uses the same
strategy or just follows the previous 2.3.
