    Not sure how it'll work...

    I've had android since 1.0, cupcake, donut, eclair, froyo and gingerbread and they've all been updates, none have done a clean install.

    The ONLY reason I wonder is due to the Gingerbread Honeycomb integration.

    I firmly expect honeycomb on phones and a few tweaks to the os. I doubt it will be a wow on tablets. I hope I'm wrong though. Find out next week when the nexus prime launches.

    So this will mean that all phones/tablets gingerbread and over this should be fine or just the duel core processors

    ...and I thought ICS was just for phones, So this is an upgrade for phones & tablets to a unified OS ???

    ICS is a unifying platform for tablets and phones. Its for all phones but I'm sure single core phones with less than 1ghz RAM will have trouble running it. Its basically bringing tablet features to phones, like the multitasking popup, etc
