T-Mobile G1 gets and Ice Cream Sandwich treat

It’s clunky, it’s slow and you would not want to use it in real life but the fact that the talented folks at XDA-Developers have an Ice Cream Sandwich port up and running on a three year old T-Mobile G1 shows a lot of promise. It’s performance is powered by an archaically sounding 528MHz single-core processor, however this shows that other old-school Android smartphones might also get a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich in the future.
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth don’t work and neither does screen rotation but the real news here is the promise, rather than the actual application itself.
The video says it all.
