There is , but is very buggy. Besides, it requires you to complie ICS yourself:

The instructions are for Gingerbread, but if you download the ICS sources, it is pretty much the same.

If there aren`t drivers for the iPhone hardware you want, you either have to write it yourself or wait until someone does it.

I advice you, ` though: if you want an Android phone, buy an android hardware.

Simonet, Thank you!

Is there any inexpensive Android hardware capable of running Ice Cream Sandwich efficiently?

It depends on what you call inexpensive.

Most phones than can run Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) fairly well will do just as well (or slightly better) with ICS, so that is a metric you can start with.

I'm trying to nail down what a good phone to start with might be. Is it realistic to think that I can get a good Android phone for under $50 that will run ICS?

Hardly. For $50 (considering a used phone, purchsed w/o a plan) you will not get a phone capable of running ICS or even gingerbread.

However, depending on the operator, if you're buying a phone with a plan, they will give you a huge discount on the phone (depeding on the plan), so for $50 you might actually get a pretty good device.

Consider anything with a single-core CPU > 800MHz and at least 512Mb of RAM capable of running ICS with an acceptable performance. Lower specs devices will also run ICS, but the experience might be a bit frustrating.

Most high-end phones with a 1.2GHz Dual Core CPU and 1Gb of RAM.
