    Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) marks a major change for Android smartphone owners lucky enough to receive the upgrade. As Google has outlined and demoed on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, ICS is a major leap for Android design and navigation, and just short of a major overhaul. The good news for tablet owners is that just about every major dual-core Honeycomb tablet released in 2011 and early 2012 will also receive the update, which was designed to unify Google's tablet operating system, Honeycomb (3.x), with its smartphone offering, Gingerbread (2.3).

    At the time of this review, two Android tablets already run ICS: the ASUS Transformer Prime and the Wi-Fi Motorola Xoom. From our time with ICS on the Wi-Fi Xoom, we can safely say it's an upgrade in every sense of the word. However, the move from Honeycomb to ICS isn't as big a leap as Gingerbread to ICS, simply because Google built much of ICS off of Honeycomb elements and aesthetics, including the 3D-like homepage transitions and general "Tron" look and feel.
