Huawei U8860 Honor gets an official We are surprised to say the least, but a fact is a fact, folks - Huawei has released an official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich ROM for its U8860 Honor handset (you can check out our hands-on impressions of it here). This makes the Chinese maker of budget devices the first manufacturer to release...

Hehe, nice! It seems that devices you wouldn't expected will get some ICS taste. My Bravo is running ICS for more than a week now, and this stuff is flawless. :) I just hope more manufacturers/devs will get the real droidsperience on our smartphones.

But still all the same, smartphones aren't technically Huawei's core business. Being relatively new at that they don't yet enjoy the sizable financial and brainpower R&D resources that Samsung (being a seasoned smatphone player by now e.g) has per se.

Which makes this surprise piece impressive indeed.

Like this honor, maybe, the term "Beta" means it's a stock version while the release version latter will be huawei version? The purpose? To give the user ICS experience as soon as possible, and give them the huawei taste latter on when the huawei version is approved/certified. Can we think that way? Just my thinking though :)

Huawei is making an EXAMPLE of what an manufacturer is supposed to be and do....I hope everyone will release ICS for their devices since a more modest manufacturers is giving this to all their users...

Im a bit confused. Will all ICS devices be stock ICS or will they have manufacturers custom skins? Because the honor had gingerbread with a huawei skin.....not stock gingerbread. What is on the pictures looks like stock ICS.

Revert back to GB if dislike and "DEMO"? I am 99% sure that is only some UI jobs.
