In Pictures: 9 Android devices getting an unofficial Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade

Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) is the latest version to show up on smartphones and tablets

Nook Color

Maker: Barnes & Noble Carrier: Not applicable; Wi-Fi only Original OS: Highly customized version of Android 2.2 ("Froyo") NOT officially supported by CyanogenMod 9 community

One of the early Android tablets that device hackers fell in love with because of its price-and-decent-hardware-specs ratio, the Nook Color received not only a port of CyanogenMod 7 (officially supported by the community), but it also saw early builds of Honeycomb running on it. The Nook Color's hardware is underpowered to support the full features of ICS, yet that hasn't stopped modders from trying to bring CyanogenMod 9 to it (their work is currently not officially sanctioned). This tablet retails for $149, making it the cheapest tablet choice in this slideshow to play around with ICS.
