    This is the moment many brand new Kindle Fire owners have been waiting for. The day a developer would successfully port Android 4.0 to the affordable little tablet. I don’t have many details regarding the developer, G1011999‘s work (will update the post once I dig around a bit), we can see Ice Cream Sandwich is up and booting. It’s all still very much a work in process and aside from the touchscreen, not much else is working. The dev did get up a quick video of his feats in action and while it did seem a bit laggy, I’m sure it’s something that can be optimized in the future.

    This is awesome news! Hopping for a Kindle Fire for X-Mas! ICS is looking nice to. I was worried the GUI would be identical on tablets as it was on smart phones, but looks like it will retain the Honeycomb GUI for tablets which please me.
