Someone over at Ainol seems to have leaked a beta version of Android 4.0 ICS for their Ainol Novo 7 Advanced.
More info and download firmware on the forums.
Ainol are officially the first company to release a tablet running Android 4.0 AKA Ice Cream Sandwich and its not even a ARM based tablet, it will be running on a MIPS based processor by Ingenic semiconductors. The Ainol Novo 7 Basic tablet isn't exactly new, it has been around for a month, last week it made news as ingenic were working with MIPS to get the official go ahead to port Android 3.0, but now it looks like they are going straight to Android 4.0.
The tablet has a 1ghz MIPS based processors, 7" 800x480 resolution screen, capacitive touch panel and 8GB of internal memory. The price tag is slated to be around $150 for the 8GB version. Ainol also seem to be rebadging the Novo7 into the Ainovo.
Now that Android 4.0 is officially open source Rockchip have wasted no time in starting to port Android 4.0 to work on tablets running on their popular Rockchip RK2918 chips. We have got a video of the new Window N90 tablet running a working Android 4.0, take it with a pinch of salt as the video has definitely been sped up.
This was originally posted on our forum back in July, but seemed to off fallen off the road to the blog site, so here it is: the Android version 2.3 Gingerbread upgrade download link for the Ainol NOVO5 Tablet. Now, when you click on the link, don't be put off by the 'VX580W' - the firmware will work with the Ainol NOVO5. And thus we grant you the path towards the nifty Android Gingerbread on your portable NOVO5 tablet - enjoy!
Hong Kong has many great things to offer: fantastic food, scenic city scenes, excellent public transportation and the warmth of over crowding (?). One that may even top this list is the massive electronics scene. An example of this greatness is the latest version of Android - 4.0 AKA Ice Cream Sandwich - that was spotted on a smartphone at an electronics event recently held in this fine city. From what we can gather in terms of improved features from the older versions are as follows: (click after the break)

The HP TouchPad's steal price of $99 resulted in an tsunami of sales which put WebOS into the hands of many, but that wasn't enough, or rather WebOS wasn't enough. The people wanted more, and more they shall have. Through the skills of developers, Android started appearing on the tablet - slow but steady. We've already blogged about the progression of having the Android Touchscreen working, well now we've got more. Find out what after the break.
Thanks to the CyanogenMod 7 ROM, there's now a working Google Android Marketplace despite its slightly skewed main page due to the 9.7-inch screen of the tablet - what evs', it still works! The ROM also brings live wallpaper, and a smooth one at that - Koi fishes in a pond that ripples when touched. The video below also shows a smooth ru
Every since the TouchDroid team managed to boot Android on the HP TouchPad, they've been hard at work to get the tablet fully functional with its new OS. Well they've taken a step closer towards that goal by enabling the touchscreen. Not only that, they've also managed to get it working with 10 point finger-touch input - a most impressive feat. Although the TouchDroid team still have their work cut out for them as there's still no confirmation on whether the tablet's other features will be compatible with Android or not, such as GPS, WiFi Radio, etc. Still, it looks like the biggest hurdles have been passed. Check out the video below showing the TouchPad's 10 point finger-touch response after the break.
Android Honeycomb already looks pretty darn good on a tablet, but it can now look so much better. There are new downloadable HD widgets designed for Android and purchasable from the Marketplace that will make your desktop look so much better than it did before - given that you own a Honeycomb tablet. The HD widgets and wallpapers are crisp, clear and as stated, in high definition and judging by the above picture, looks fantastic. In fact, you may even remember it from the Vortex Galaxy Live wallpaper blog we did a while back. Check out more about them after the break.
The screenshot above shows another example of the many options you can choose from which ranges in colour, size, background, clock type and many more customizable features for your personal preference. There are even
