Nokia N9 Gets An Ice Cream Sandwich Port
By on February 11th, 2012

The Nokia N9 was one of its kind phone – It was the first and the last phone from Nokia to run on the MeeGo OS. The handset got some ravishing reviews, but barely managed to sell because of its bleak future. However, the N9 is a favorite among developers and modders.

The open-hardware on the N9, and the talented developers of NITDroid have managed to get Ice Cream Sandwich to boot on the handset. The developers have only released a picture of the handset running Ice Cream Sandwich, which does not really says much about what works and what does not. There is no public build available as well, so N9 owners need to wait for some more time before they can taste some ICS on their handset.

The developers are definitely having a tough time porting Android’s kernel to the N9, and to get some basic features like GPU acceleration and the radios to work. Interested N9 developers can head over to Maemo.org for more information about this project, and the progress being made by the developers.
