Nexus S and Galaxy S i9000 Get CM9 Alpha

The Cyanogen team need no introduction when it comes to Android ports that work. Ice Cream Sandwich has been designed to run on phones and tablets natively, so its potential to be more successful than CM7 is a given. With this idea in mind, two weeks ago the Cyanogen team pulled a rock across the entrance of their cave and began work on CM9, stating they would be “back in 2 months”. Despite the Honeycomb project (CM8) being discontinued, the team are seemingly set on making CM9 a success.

CM9 has made an appearance on the Galaxy S i9000 and Nexus S. I’ve been using it on the Nexus S, and for a port that’s only in Alpha 11, I’ve experienced no obvious faults. I am very excited to see how Cyanogen apply ICS to tablets and phones alike.
