Industrious Android enthusiasts have begun the process of porting Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to the Kindle Fire; check out this video to see it in action.

When Amazon announced a $200 Android tablet running a customized version of the Android OS, everyone knew it was only a matter of time before people started modding it. Currently the port isn’t fully functional (Wi-Fi and audio support are missing, for example) but, as the video above showcases, the Kindle is more than capable of running Ice Cream Sandwich.
