Yes, we’ll be seeing many Ice Cream Sandwich-based tablets at MWC, but we’ll probably have to wait a bit to get our grubby hands on this Android 4.0 goodness. Or will we? Apparently, iberry HK, a Hong Kong- based electronics manufacturer, have setup their India HQ in Chennai and is all set to launch the countries first Android 4.0 based tablet. They just may be able to pull it off, as besides some existing tablets that have already got ICS, the big guns will only start trickling in a little later.

Wishful thinking?

Wishful thinking?

We don’t have any information regarding this tablet right now, other than the fact that it will be called the Auxus AX02 and that it will run ICS. The company currently has two products available and both run on Gingerbread. The AX02 will feature a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen, feature HDMI-out and will most likely sport a dual-core CPU. If the image shown above is the actual tablet, then we can see the front facing camera and what seems to be a physical home button, of sorts. This is a bit odd, since Google is trying to do away with any physical buttons on a device. That may change when the product actually launches.

Iberry seem to have jumped the gun a bit by claiming that they will launch India’s first ICS tablet, or do they know something that we don’t? Is it actually possible that we won’t see any ICS-based tablets before April? Only time will tell.
