    Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) On Droid 2

    Does anyone think that Ice Cream Sandwich will ever be available on the Droid 2?

    Probably not as an official OTA but perhaps pieces of it can be incorporated into future ROMs.

    What is the probability of developers making a (ICS) ROM?

    At this point, I believe the D2 is just about dead as far as development goes.

    Doubt you'll see a full port but I'm sure elements will be implemented into future ROMs.

    Considering Google wanted to press manufacturers to support devices with the latest version of Android for ~18 months from release (barring any reasonable hardware limitations), I fully expect to receive ICS on my phone (unless, of course, ICS has some requirements the D2 does not meet...)

    That announcement was made after the droid2, droidx, etc were launched. So sorry but we won't see an official build. Besides ICS on a single core 512mb ram device would probably be sluggish.

    I disagree with everyone, I think the d2 will get ICS, not officially though. Once Cyanogen gets updated to cm9 or whatever it is all they have to do is get it working on d2. It will be able to run fine on the hardware too. Granted ICS is more resource intensive, you don't need duel cores to run a mobile OS. It was seen running on the nexus S fine, which has very comparable specs to the droid 2. If anything you would expect a new OS to take less power, not more. For the most part they just changed the look. Nothing to really eat up the processor.

    Hard to say. I'm inclined to not think so though.... I'd be surprised if we see ICS updates for phones like the Droid 3 by Summer 2012. Even if Google wants to push manufacturers to support their older devices, the D2 will be edging up on 2 years old at that point, which for a smartphone these days is fairly old (in most cases).

    But we'll have to see.

    With cm7 my D2 is throwing quadrant scores that has everyone with a Bionic looking over their shoulder. What features can I expect from ICS to make my mouth water.
