Nexus S 4G ICS port

As we explained yesterday, now that the Ice Cream Sandwich SDK has been released, we're about to see a deluge of SDK-based ROM ports. We're not going to cover them all here, but will will cover the first to come out of the Android Central Forums. Beezy's been hard at work, and you'll soon be able to enjoy the fruits of his SDK labor on the Nexus S 4G. Things are very much still a work in progress, but you'll soon be able to be the first on your block to say you have some form of ICS on your phone.

Ice Cream Sandwich SDK ports begin with the Nexus S 4G

CM8 would have been a honeycomb project but since it wasnt open sourced CM9 = ICS. From my understanding at least

And it is quite probably that Google will release Honeycomb source code at the same time or after ICS. They have nothing to lose by releasing it now.

i personally prefer neopolitan ice cream sandwichs, so much flavor i hope for my nexus s!!!! Sweetness

What is the difference between the SDK version of Android and the AOSP (open source) version of Android (which I believe CM7 uses)?

I'm guessing money that you have to pay Google to officially use their version?

I'm probably wrong, usually am.

GOOGLE WILL TAKE OVER THE WORLD WITHOUT ASKING US FOR A DIME ONLY TO TRY A PIECE OF THERE CUPCAKE. THEN YOUR HOOKED ON ANDROID BEEN WITH THEM THROUGH C D E F G AND NOW GETTING READY TO TRY THE I FIRMWARE NEVER CHECKED OUT HONEYCOMB SENSE IT WAS INTENDED FOR TAB'S

SDK version uses already compiled binaries, basically mixing & matching already-built components. AOSP uses the source code (not yet released by Google), it's like using the original blueprints, which should be better & more robust. CyanogenMods use source code only.

Having a hard time deciding on a Nexus S 4G or a Galaxy Nexus.

What do you guys think?

(Just say both are running ICS.)

the nexus with cy 7 is the best i've ever seen there's nothing this droid won't do I haven't jumped to ICS yet I'm still loving GB I would like to try out some different mod's tho not the cy isn't awesome
