    Apparently, Android4.0/ICS is going to be huge! Now, that's not in the usual "marketing hype" way... obviously it's a really big deal and will probably mark the beginning of a banner year for Android n 2012. You see, it's very large in another way actually... the new Android OS is going to literally be an enormous download. In fact, here are some comments from developers describing it's enormity,
    Also, another developer, HTCClay, had this to say,
    Developers need to keep this in mind as it's immense size will take up more hard drive space, as it's a 6GB of download, and 25GB on disk. Furthermore, it is recommended that you use 16GB of RAM or more, and it’ll take 5+ hours of CPU time just to make one build! Wow! :icon_eek:

    For these reasons, it will take a bit more time for all the community developers to get stuff cranked out for it, so in the mean time, the rest of us normal folk get to be patient. We send great intentions out to our developers. Hang in there guys... we don't want to hear about any "brain-splode"!

    I got 24 GB high performance DDR3 for my PC for $150 . Many people are probably still running 1 or 2 GB but at the end of 2011 the required amount is not something outrageous .

    I have a feeling a lot of Clockwork Mod zips will be made and flashed as opposed to super mega Odin files. That way you can just edit what you want and leave the rest. Well, at least at first. File sharing websites will be rare because file sizes will be so massive to host them on.

    did google give a reason for why? i think i remember reading something about how ICS ups the ante on what phones require as far as memory and disk space available, but dayum!

    Source is big, but once compiled the file size will be small. i assure you our phones wont be taking on a rom thats 6gb big. even gingerbread source 0was like 2gb. ics is clearly a massive jump but hopefully most the crap will be pushed out of the way and only the important will survive. its going to be fun for cyanogen to compile a rom for the droid. im amazed though becuase the features added in ICS dont seem like it would be such a massive file size leap from Gigerbread. I know honeycomb was added to but still. ..

    Well ICS is based from Honeycomb and has added features from GB and then has it's own ICS stuff on top of that. I can see why it's huge. Plus I'm sure there's a ton of hidden features that will be released over time that could add some bulk.
