    From this article it appears that Google has announced that Android 4.0.3 will be released to phones, tables, and other devices in the "next few weeks". I guess the forum prophet here that opened many threads stating "Motorola manager told me..." that stated the process of several updates in a row over the next few months will be proven or dis-proven rather quickly here soon.


    This just proves that it will be here when it gets here. No one knows for sure. But the Google release sounds promising and more truthful than the forum prophets reciting of the "Gospel of Motorola" of it.

    "Going forward, we’ll be focusing our partners on Android 4.0.3 as the base version of Ice Cream Sandwich. The new platform will be rolling out to production phones and tablets in the weeks ahead, so we strongly encourage you to test your applications on Android 4.0.3 as soon as possible."

    Yeah, it's way too early for ICS ROM. Way too many bugs. At least it was announced on Dec. 4 that Google employees started testing ICS. So, it has been in the test phase for almost 2 weeks. Encouraging.

    When I was living in El Centro, CA, a co-worker (from Detroit) told me he moved to El Centro because he had been told that it was "minutes away" from the Pacific Ocean. 120 minutes, yeah.

    Weeks could mean 52 weeks for that matter.

    I'm thinking by "other devices" what they mean is "other NEXUS devices"....such as the Nexus S. And as for the Moto is going to update phones like the Razr and Bionic to ICS in the beginning of January.....I find that HIGHLY doubtful. Just being honest....I would hope....hope....for middle of the year....

    If we are placing bets I am going to say we will receive ICS in March. Maybe end of Feb if we are lucky.

    And that's a ROM...not a official Ota ... not trying to down the developers but with every "rom" I have tried it has been buggy.. just my 2 cents.

    I on the other hand can't wait to get that update!!

    I can agree with that too..but for the most part they are pretty bug free compared to a created Rom..

    I also read it'll start rolling out in the next few weeks; however, I read it will only be on Nexus devices first. So the Nexus S is believed to be the next recipient. I'll try and find the article online later, read it through Taptu...

    Moto will have to Blurr it first. Devs will likely have it working long before Moto and VZW are ready to release.
    Yes, the ROM out now from DHacker has bugs but considering he's working with a locked bootloader so he can't change the kernel he's way ahead of the curve.
    My bet is Th3ory, CM, or another dev will have it functional in weeks if not sooner.
    Cam and data are about all that still has to be fixed in DH's build.
    Just saying.

    So true, it would be so awesome and cool if Google just put there foot down and said enough of these UIs. You get rid of blur, touch and sence and phones get updated so much faster.

    Thinking June-July timeframe. Was talking with Verizon tech, he said sure we'll see it, but, "it would be a few months".

    Hmm, idk, I have a Droid 1 so I don't have any ui overlay but I have played around with other phones and I kinda like sense, it looks pretty nice and has lots of extra features and customizations...I'm sure people feel the same way about the other ui's too (personally I think blur is ugly and touchwiz is just whatever but everyone has their opinions)
