Ice Cream Sandwich for HTC Hero?

Ice Cream Sandwich for HTC Hero?The HTC Hero – or T-Mobile G2 Touch, if you preferis well over two years old now, and was officially left behind on Eclair (Android 2.1), so it has no chance of getting the Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) treatment, right?

Wrong. That’s if the good folks at xda-developers have anything to do with it. And heck, they like a good challenge.

The modest HTC Hero still has a faithful community of developers supporting it, and there are in fact unofficial ports of Froyo (Android 2.2) and Gingerbread (Android 2.3).

The HeroC ICS 4.0.1 Development thread was posted on November 14, and there are reports that the HTC Hero now boots with Ice Cream Sandwich and full touchscreen functionality.

Other elements, however, such as audio, Wi-Fi and the camera, are still a work in progress.

The HTC Hero was the first smartphone to rock HTC Sense, and features a 3.2in display with 320x480 resolution, 288MB RAM, 512MB storage, a 528MHz Qualcomm MSM7200A processor, and 5MP camera.

I still have my Hero and only changed to an SGS2 for the speed and bigger screen. I have a white version and still think it's a great looking phone and quite futuristic looking. Only drawback was without a case the teflon coated finish made it very slippey to hold. ICS will look awesome ... if only a little slow.
