    Anyone know around any date when the ice cream sandwich will come out? I just know they say early 2012. I'm hoping January

    based on my experience with moto, i wouldn't expect ICS to come to the razr any time soon.

    99% sure it won't be January. They haven't even posted that they have an update that will be pushed out "soon". And its typically 2 weeks after that.

    They said 2012 Q1, so probably March 31.

    I'm a little concerned its going to negatively impact the "perfectly" functioning RAZR. I also do not like the color scheme and search bar.

    I think I'm probably the only one in the group who does not it and does not like it :)

    With that said they will probably push it wayyyy too soon (March)

    I also don't like some of the color schemes in ics. And the big head icons where pics go for contacts. So that means I really don't like the contacts app.

    Every thing isn't great about ics to some of us.

    This. With Go Launcher and other apps to replace stock, I'm more than happy with my Razr's current performance.

    Does anyone remember the update debacle of Google Maps? Update isn't always better.

    Have to agree with most others on this one, this phone runs great the way it is. I am in no hurry to have it riddled with bugs from ICS. With Go Launcher there is no need for ROMS, you can make it look anyway you want it. This phone is plenty fast stock with just a couple apps frozen, anything else is just being picky. Having full control of the phone with it rooted and the latest TiBu installed, I am more than happy just the way it is.

    I'm surprised at the responses in here but thinking about it more, I'm actually not.

    I noticed that most, if not all RAZR posts, talking about ICS are not about urgency. Meaning I haven't seen a thread or post with anyone saying "I can't wait to get ICS."

    It_seems_ we are all pretty happy where we are at lol. I've never seen this in all my years here. In the past these forums were littered with threads ranging from "I want it now" to "VZW sucks!! Where's our update?!!" lol

    Yeah I'm in no big hurry to get ICS. After owning the Galaxy Nexus for a couple weeks I honestly don't see what the big deal is. Yeah it will be "better" assuming it's not full of bugs. But it's not the second coming of christ as everyone makes it seem.

    The only thing I'm looking forward to in ICS is the ability to take screenshots without root.

    I was reading about ICS on Phone Arena (I think) and as they were going through the features I kept thinking "The Razr has that ". There were some features that were missing but a majority, and most of the best features, we're already present.

    I remember watching the ICS unveiling and Matias saying that they got some great ideas from Sense, Touchwiz and Blur. I say they pretty much took the best features from all three and incorporated them into ICS.

    So if Google takes features from the big three skins and makes them part of the OS, is it really "vanilla Android " or is it simply a skinned version of Gingerbread?
