    I'm still waiting for ICS on Touchpad. Was that called out? Any thoughts on how quickly that might come in? Reply

    A version of CM7 for the TouchPad is currently in its third alpha, according to the thread here: http://forum.cyanogenmod.com/topic/33227-alpha-cya...

    It wasn't mentioned in the CM9 post, but if it (1) runs CM7 and (2) is sufficiently powerful, odds are good that CM9 will make it there eventually.

    The Touchpad's CPU is the APQ8060, which is just the MSM8660 without any of the cell phone radios. So there should be support at some point, but it will probably be somewhat later than the MSM8660/8260 phones. Reply

    Good to know seeing how Samsung has already gone against Googles little update alliance they signed agreeing all devices should get updates during at least the first 18 months of their lives.
    The Galaxy Tab 7 isnt much more than a year old and won't receive an update from Samsung...

    How many of those did they even sell? 10K? Reply

    It doesn't matter how many they sold, they shouldn't have sold them promising an update and not giving one. Reply

    First, the original galaxy tab you refer to was made in the 2.2 days, and was updated to 2.3. Who told samsung to release a tablet before it was ready with Honeycomb anyhow.

    Second, your accusation has no merit - the rule was introduced with ICS or version 4.

    I can't wait to start testing builds in the next few months. CM9 is going to be absolutely amazing! Reply

    I really want this for the new Nook Tablet. Looks like it should be on the early arrival list given that it has the OMAP4. I expect that will allow a repartitioning of the awful B&N reserved memory space. Yes, I know well about the wonders of the Fire but I want the microSD slot. Reply

    But the nook has a locked bootloader, so unless it gets unlocked, ICS is very unlikely. Reply
