    When I got my Droid X2 during the pre-order period, I was confident this phone would ultimately get upgraded to ICS. Now, I am nervous it will not happen. I really hope I am wrong.

    The only ICS stuff I have seen is the launch related videos. Have you seen any ICS in action?

    I wonder if the X2 using Tegra chip, will be a factor? If its a no-go, then I'd guess this could be a major reason....and maybe even the true hard control buttons?

    No, the true hard control buttons won't be a problem at all and the TEGRA chip that's in the X2 is also in the XOOM which has been confirmed by Motorola to be getting an update to ICS.

    Moto has confirmed 3 things that will get ICS:
    1. Bionic
    2. Razr
    3. XOOM
    And they've said they'll announce more devices after ICS hits AOSP so Motorola can take a closer look at it. I think the X2 is pretty safe for an ICS update since the XOOM has the same TEGRA 2 chipset in it, so a lot of the heavy lifting getting ICS compatible with their TEGRA 2 chipset will have to be done anyway because of the XOOM.

    Droid 3 is almost a lock as well since it's basically the same phone as the Bionic and Razr just without the 4G and extra 512 of ram. 512 is enough ram for ICS since google themselves said the Nexus S will be getting an ICS upgrade relatively soon.

    So in short, logically yes, we should see an ICS update on then X2. I think it's gonna take a long time though; I don't expect to see it until February at the earliest. ICS is a huge upgrade, much bigger than the jump from 2.2>2.3 was.

    No you won't. Motorola said 6 weeks min after it first becomes available on a phone (Nexus) for the razr. With that release up in the sure there's no way the x2 will get ICS in Dec.

    I agree. It was over 5 months after GB was released before the X got GB officially. Even longer for the D2 and D2G

    True, but I think it was because Moto did an overhaul on blur when releasing GB. Which I think held things up.

    My only concern is the blur overlay. The question is will Moto invest the time to have blur work on ICS? With Google buying Moto there's a good chance that we could lose blur and get a stock ICS (which would be very cool IMO). But if Moto insists we have to have blur that could drastically delay how long it takes for us to get ICS (assuming its on the upgrade plan/path).

    Again, with Google trying to buy Moto that ups our chances considerably of the X2/D3 being on that plan/path.

    This actually isn't what they said either. They said that Bionic, Razr and XOOM are guaranteed to get ICS and they'll know around 6 weeks after ICS hits AOSP when/if other phones will even get the update.

    So basically phones won't get them 6 weeks later, Motorola will just know what phones can/will be upgraded to ICS (Besides the Bionic and RAZR) so the timeline until we actually GET ICS is a lot longer than 6 weeks.
