Some people have bought cool tablets, hoping to get a taste of what the future of Android will bring… and as usual we know how Samsung and Google move when it comes to upgrading software. Well, luckily those of you who escaped controversy and actually bought a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 unit will get the Android 4.0 early and unofficially via Cyanogen.
The CyanogenMod team has been hard at work to release the Android 4.0 version of their famous software. Not so long ago, Google released the source code for Ice Cream Sandwich and Cyanogen recently posted on Google+ that he’s already playing with ICS on the Galaxy Tab 10.1, as the CyanogenMod 9 version is closing to completion. Steve Kondik aka Cyanogen says the experience with the slate is great and the build is close to being ready.
Files will be available through mirrors, so ICS will come to your tablet sooner than you expect. Also, this means you should expect Android 4.0 to run on the Motorola Xoom and a bunch of other slates thanks to CyanogenMod 9. Handsets are also on the list and maybe before the month is out we’ll see some software arriving.
