Default Work Begins on CyanogenMod 9, ETA in January

Following the release of Ice Cream Sandwich's source code, Cyanogen announced via Twitter that work had begun on CyanogenMod 9, the Ice Cream Sandwich-based version of the popular community-developed Android distribution. He also announced a rough ETA of two months from now - this is, of course, an extremely informal announcement and should be taken with a grain of salt, but it suggests that work on the new version should progress quickly.

CyanogenMod is popular among users for a number of reasons: it's updated more often and more quickly than the Android versions distributed with many phones, it includes a number of useful enhancements and utilities, it gives users of heavily customized devices (like the Nook Color) access to the full Android feature set, and it does its best to improve the tablet experience for Android tablets without Honeycomb, which never had its source code released (the CyanogenMod version number is jumping directly from 7 to 9 to acknowledge that fact). The new Ice Cream Sandwich version should further improve the experience on tablets, and it may also be a way for users of older or officially unsupported devices (like Google's Nexus One) to take advantage of Android 4.0's improvements.

The CyanogenMod team will continue work on CM 7 in the meantime - another Tweet from Cyanogen confirmed that version 7.2 of the Gingerbread-based distribution would be developed and released while the team works on CyanogenMod 9. We'll keep tabs on the team's activity as it progresses.
