While we've seen the newest iteration of Android show its stuff on the phone, we've yet to see what the experience will be like on a tablet. That's all about to change, though, because Cyanogen himself posted the following on his Google+:

ICS on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is pretty great. Coming soon to a CM mirror near you :)

I, for one, am giddy with excitement about this; I've been looking forward to ICS on my Tab 10.1 for a while now. Of course, we all know the first rule of Cyanogenmod by now, so we'll just hang out on the sidelines and wait for this one to make its way to the mirror network.

    Awww... where's the love for the Xoom?? :(

    • Ryuuie

      As I said in the comment below, it's a Google developer tablet. ICS will come officially to the Xoom.

    • Hans-Erik

      Cyanogen works for Samsung now so he probably have good access to drivers and other things from Samsung. :)

    Xoom love needed

    • Ryuuie

      Xoom is a Google Developer tablet so it'll be getting ICS officially.

      • Joe

        Oh, so remind me, which tablet did the fine folks at google decide to hand out for free to scores of developers at Google i/o? Oh that's right...

      Considering how fast Motorola puts the updates, you would be lucky to get ics in 3 years. Remember how long it took them to update cliq xt? They kept the empty promises for years and then just decided to not upgrade at all. Dam thing is still on 1.5

      • Victor Stuber

        cliq xt is not a developer device. and nobody bought it

    Makes perfect sense since Steve works for Samsung now...

  • Seanzky

    Xoom love will follow. ICS is coming to Xoom and Transformer Prime. It's almost a guarantee CM9 ports will make their way as well to those two tablets as well as others like Iconia, Thrive, TF1, etc.

    What does this mean for the LTE Tab 10.1? Would I be able to flash CM on it or will it only work for the wifi-only version?

    • http://www.romrepo.info TechJeeper

      Initially it will pry be the Wifi version, but a port will surly follow...

    • L boogie

      I definitely agree on the lte version of the g-tab though wondering how long the carrier would take to port ICS over to its devices

  • DM

    We need 10.1v support ! :(

  • Rob

    Sweet. Hope this will also be the case for the 8.9 variant of the GTab as this is the Tablet I'm considering. Already have CM7 on my HTC EVO 4G. As with most updates I haven't fallen 100% in love with ICS yet, but that's just me. I like many of the features, but all the white in the "People" app is annoying. Hoping CM9 puts its own spin on ICS and/or at least offers customization options. That said, I am anxiously awaiting the opportunity to update to CM9. :D

    As for the Xoom: Solarnz is already developing a ROM! Check it out (also includes a brief video of ICS on the xoom to show progress).

    Seems like Cyanogen forgot about the Touchpad :(

    • Ross

      Please stop the unsubstantiated complaints! there are different devs working on these projects. The touchpad is still being worked on.

        Wow, thanks for the tip!!!

        I haven't been able to find any updates since October...

  • austin

    What about the g-tab lol

  • joshdb

    jt1134 has ICS booting on it (The G-Tab). Not sure if he's released anything, though.
    He also has ICS running on the Samsung Fascinate, and it's quickly becoming more stable.

  • Joshua

    Nexus One needs love asap!! :D

    • Erik

      Nexus one ? Are you dreamin right now ? LoL

  • Steve T

    Will this ROM work for the Galaxy Tab 8.9 as well?

  • Hal Motley

    This is the best news, I have Cyanogenmod 7 on my Galaxy S II and I think my Galaxy Tab 10.1 could really do with some love! I have already rooted it and installed ROM Manager almost there.
