The ZiiLABS ZMS-20 chips debuted back in May of this year and are aimed at use in tablets running Android. Originally, they were specifically for Android 3.0 tablets, but a new video has surfaced on ARM Devices that shows a ZMS-20-based reference tablet running the coming Android 4.0 ICS operating system. If you have forgotten what the chip is, the ZMS-20 is a 1.5GHz ARM Cortex A9 MPcore processor that supports 1080p video playback, OpenGL ES 2.0 3D graphics, and more.

The video that has surfaced shows the tablet running Android 4.0 and highlights certain features of the new OS running on the hardware. The transitions that the OS has are very smooth and fluid on the tablet. From what you can see on the video the tablet is also very good for gaming with smooth graphics that look very good.

The demo also shows same of the photo capabilities of the OS and the tablet platform. The slideshow effects zoom in and out with no apparent loss of quality. You can see the video below; beware the elevator music that plays along though.
