Google Android 4.0, otherwise known as Ice Cream Sandwich, has been released for x86. There is an ISO available, featuring hardware acceleration for AMD Radeon, but not yet for Intel-based systems. Several things don't work as of yet.

I'm trying to boot the live CD on my desktop PC. It keeps displaying dots "..........." and that's it. My real ice cream sandwich melted waiting for this Ice Cream Sandwich to boot.

for all the people getting the endless dots when booting in VirtualBox here is what worked for me
1. right click the machine name and select Settings
2. click Storage
3. in the middle section of the window will be an area labeled 'Storage Tree' which shows your current controllers. The default is IDE, which is the problem.
4. Look at the bottom of the box; just below the box are four icons. Pick the third one from the left. It has a angled box with a green plus sign over it and the mouse over says 'Add Controller' - click it
5. Choose Add SATA controller; your new controller will now be in the Storage Tree
6. Use the two icons on the line for your new SATA controller to add the new virtual hard drive and your CD drive
7. Remove the IDE controller
8. Mount the ISO in the CD drive and enjoy some sweet ICS
