The development on cheaper, lesser known tablets has been surprisingly active in recent weeks, and Matsunichi’s modest 9.7″ tablet is no exception.
The duo doesn’t have ICS or CM9 working just yet. However, with updates on their progress appearing every 1 or 2 days, it is only a matter of time before they get an alpha for users to test. The latest update on their progress:

The proverbial train that is CyanogenMod9 keeps on a rollin’ today as it hits another device. This time, it happens to be the Samsung Galaxy Note.
The giant phone gets its giant update to one of the most giant ROMs in the history of ROM making courtesy to XDA member Maui, who’s been kind enough to compile it for everyone toting the super sized phone.
As expected, it is an alpha build and there are some issues. They include:
Bluetooth is unstable. Don’t rely on it just yet
Battery Usage doesn’t work.
MTP Mode does not work. You need to push/pull files via adb
Camera doesn’t work. Will be that way until we can get our hands on a ICS leak for the Galaxy Note
Unlike most CM builds, it is notewort. . . READ ON »

Cyanogen has been hard at work to bring you the perfect customisation of the latest Android iteration, Ice Cream Sandwich. Almost a month ago the team announced their two month hardcore-development period to put the basic framework in place for ICS to work. They’re succeeding mainly with OMAP4, MSM8660/7×30 and Exynos-based handsets, so if you own those look forward to trying CM9 first. Support has also been boasted for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and ASUS Transformer.
Despite issues developing the new Android framework for camera and graphics drivers, the team is confident they can work around this.

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 table. . . READ ON »
