[TC] Google Promises Android 4.0 For The Nexus S, “Theoretically” For Gingerbread Devices, Too

Quote:
Google’s Android Product Manager Gabe Cohen and Android User Experience Director Matias Duarte have promised Ice Cream Sandwich for the Nexus S, and hinted that all other Android 2.3 Gingerbread devices should “theoretically” get ICS as well. Here’s the official quote: “Currently in the process for releasing Ice Cream Sandwich for Nexus S. Theoretically should work for any 2.3 device.” According to Engadget, there still isn’t a clear plan for the Nexus One.

Full title added to post.

I was also over on XDA and read a bit and a couple users said they received information that the GS2 will be getting ICS. As for rumors, we may see official releases around the beginning of December. We should start to see some custom Roms sooner than that. Though with the higher resolution and hardware differences in Android phones, it will be hard to tell how stable or how many features/applications can be ported over with the ICS dumps that are available.

I would be very disappointed if transformer does not get it.

Support will probably be a combination of age and hardware. The theoretically in quotation from the source tells me that this is a group of phones released recently that should have enough power to run ICS (also if the manufacturer decides to make it an update or not).

Once you are in the modding community though, support should be around for pretty much all popular phones. So one way or another if someone wants to try out ICS they will probably see some sort of opportunity present itself, even if it means some slimmed down version so that it does not bog down your phone.

That's kind of what I'm thinking too. I've heard rumors that Gingerbread is supposed to be the last official update for my phone (Droid 2 Global), but the phone itself is pretty powerful and shouldn't have a problem with ICS. It's more a matter of the fact that the phone was released about a year ago, so it's ancient by tech standards.

Im really loving True Gingerbread on my Bionic and actually enjoy the blur that came with it too. Would like to see what ICS will do for my phone, really need that ota coming in november to hurry up though to fix a few bugs.
