Is there an Android 4.0 ICS port for my Android phone, tablet?

Since the day Google has released the Ice Cream Sandwich source, the adventurous Android users have been scouring through XDA, Modaco, and other Droid forums looking for the status for a compatible ICS port for their Android devices.

Considering that Android 4.0 works both on Android phones and tablets, developers all around are abuzz with activity trying to release alpha or beta firmwares based on ICS. Although, there is still some time, but some HTC phones, Galaxy S and Nexus S nearing the first builds that will have everything working (apart from some bugs that will be ironed out in the days to come).

XDA member dravenSt0rM did a great job of compiling all the XDA based in-development ICS ports in a single post to let you find out the status of an Android 4.0 based firmware for your phone. He certainly deserves a bi applaud, so if you head over to XDA to check out more about your phone or tablets’s ICS ports, do press the thanks button.
