Wonder when they will have it for the Droid X. :-(

Just a quick google. Maybe December is a bit early, but there was a lot of speculation that we would be getting ICS within a month or so of the Nexus' release date. Everything that Motorola and Verizon was putting out showed that we should expect it early 2012. Well, it is now April.
The start of 2012
Droid Razr To Taste Ice Cream Sandwich Update In First Half Of 2012 | TechCrunch
"Update: A Motorola representative has reached out to us to clarify that ICS will make its way to US Droid Razrs sometime in the first half of 2012, and not the first quarter as originally reported."
As for the first three articles, it's still "early 2012." It's early 2012 until we reach mid 2012. So there's nothing in any of those articles to indicate that we should have received an update in the time frame you wanted. There was never any indication of getting ICS withing a month of the Nexus' release date either. No one ever believes that will happen for non-Nexus phones (and it doesn't even always happen for Nexus phones), and if they do, it's because they've never gone through waiting for major OS updates on Android before.
I guess the rumors of an ICS release this week has gotten everyone so worked up to where they're reading into every article they can find and twisting things in order to justify their frustration over being taken in by the rumors. There's never been anything but rumors and quotes of "early 2012" and "first half of 2012" for an ICS update on the RAZR/RAZR MAXX, both of which we're still in.
Key word is speculation hoops As another member already pointed out do NOT ever buy a handset based on when you think its OS will be updated. Despite what you read and from whom, you can never be sure the info is accurate ESPECIALLY when it comes to a device or devices being updated. You have about 3 or 4 more rumor dates to go through before an accurate one shows up
Every big update has a pattern it seems. 4-5 rumors/tips that never pan out, followed by an accurate one. Save yourself some aggravation and just plan on a summer release. Not an early or mid or late one neither lol. Sometime this summer
1 rumor down 3-4 to go
