Huawei Honor gets Ice Cream Sandwich demo release

Meet the second unexpected guest to turn up at the Android 4.0 party

Huawei has released an official demo version of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for its midrange 1.4Ghz-powered 4in Honor smartphone.

The surprise move means that the Honor is the first smartphone since the Samsung Galaxy Nexus to officially have Ice Cream Sandwich – although we're not sure how stable it will run given its beta tag.

Motorola's Xoom tablet and a whole range of Samsung smartphones are among the list of devices also expected to get a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich goodness in the near future, so lets hope Huawei's announcement shifts them up a gear – we're hungry.
