The HTC Evo 4G is now running an alpha build of Ice Cream Sandwich put together by the hackers over at xda-developers.

If Ice Cream Sandwich is able to run on a Windows 6.5 phone, it's no surprise that it is also up and running on the HTC Evo 4G. Once again, the Android hackers at xda-developers have managed to get Android 4.0 functioning on an older device, and while this is definitely an alpha build, the Evo 4G with Ice Cream Sandwich has touchscreen functionality, carrier service, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and audio output — there doesn't seem to be any mention of Android Market, so that might still be on the fritz. This handset has historically been kept fairly up to date by HTC, though considering how HTC failed to mention it when outlining its ICS upgrade plans, users might have to rely on xda-developers to have the latest version of Android.
