Amazon Kindle Fire tablet gets ported with Android 4.0 ICS

Total Shares 0

The Amazon Kindle Fire was released in the US last month and it comes pre-loaded with a heavily skinned Android Gingerbread OS. Now some smart developers have managed to port the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to the Kindle Fire.

This is a good news for the owners of Kindle Fire tablet. At least now you have a choice to have Android 4.0 ICS running on it, in the case you do not like the Gingerbread.

The port to Android 4.0 ICS on the Kindle Fire doesn’t seem to be a smooth deed. The developer has managed to get the touchscreen and GPU acceleration work but things like WiFi, audio, accelerometer, and light sensor still don’t work at the moment.

It’s unclear if the Amazon services that come with the Kindle Fire will still be accessible after the Android ICS port. The Amazon Kindle Fire can be had from Amazon for $200 each. Clip below shows the port.
