What phones have Android 4.0 now?

It has been half of year since the first Android 4.0 device (Samsung Galaxy Nexus) made its debut on November 17, 2011. In 2012, HTC also introduced its Android 4.0 phone HTC One X on 26 February 2012.   And recent Internet sensation Samsung Galaxy S III will be available in the US on June 1st 2012.

And now, some  developers are already focusing on ICS compatibility. As a result, the apps which only run for ICS will be expected to increase with more Android 4.0 devices released. Check this picture:
