    So why exactly are you waiting for ICS?

    Meaning, what do you exactly look forward to in ICS?

    Smoother UI, better multitasking, dual-core support, locking down applications without root, standard Bluetooth input device support...etc..etc (it truly is a massive upgrade over gingerbread).

    These are some of the things I was looking for.

    In addition to the above, simply having the capability to run apps written for API levels 14 and 15. Aka apps that require ICS to function. It's going to happen at some point, apps are going to start coming out for 4.0+ devices only. I don't care to be left behind.

    Well, we all know as soon as ICS releases for a good number of devices, it will just change to "When is Jellybean coming? Is Jellybean coming tomorrow? Come on, Jellybean"

    Does anyone know if ICS improves battery life when compared to Gingerbread?

    I got my extended battery within a day or two of loading the leak so from personal experience I honestly can't say. However I would have to say no because ics makes better use of the dual core processor. It uses both cores more so than gingerbread.

    Using a single core doesn't improve battery life exactly, the single core will be spun up twice as long. The use of GPU acceleration generally improves battery life a small amount on ICS.
