    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.
