Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich powered devices are still not all that common, with Android 2.3 Gingerbread still being the most popular version at the moment. Well, it seems that there is a rather obscure tablet known as the TomTec ATP7658 Excellent 8 which has arrived at the FCC, signalling its impending release to the masses here in the US assuming it passes FCC inspection with flying colors. Even more interesting news is the fact that it will come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich right out of the box.

For those who are familiar with the more obscure tablets from China-based manufacturers, you might feel as though you have seen the TomTec ATP7658 Excellent 8 tablet somewhere before – that is because it bears a close resemblance to the Xiron Excellent 8 tablet that was released last year. This makes the TomTec fall under the budget tablet category, but to have it run on Ice Cream Sandwich is definitely something worth taking note of.
