PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Experience mobile life without carrier or Samsung overlays. Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich lets you customize your screen for faster access to the widgets you use most. Multitasking is no longer a chore with quicker access to notifications and recently used apps. Blazing web browsing and voice-controlled search lets you find what you are looking for, faster." Yes, this is Samsung advertising against its own TouchWiz nonsense. No words.

Sony Xperia Pro (single-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 @ 1 GHz, Adreno 205 GPU, 512 MB RAM although only 384 MB available to OS) runs Android 4.0.4 ... just barely. This SoC is one step above the Galaxy Discover (MSM8xxx vs MSM7xxx).

Android 2.3.4 ran beautifully on this SoC, usually with 80-100 MB of RAM free after boot, and 30-40 MB after starting GMail, Opera Mobile, Contacts, XDA, and Google Reader.

Android 4.0.4 has nicer apps, but boots with only 20-30 MB of free RAM, and quickly drops down to 5-10 MB after starting a handful of apps.

Android 4.0 uses a lot more RAM than 2.3.

The only reason 4.0 may run well on this Galaxy device is due to the screen resolution being so low.
