    It won't be too different from the nexus experience, except it will have Motorola's overlay. The nexus and Bionic are very similar from a hardware standpoint.

    If you want to try out a facelock application, Visidon AppLock PI from the market does work reasonably well. I do not run it all the time, but there are times I do turn it on. You can definately get a feel for whether this technology will work for your lifestyle.

    Does anyone know if we will lose the quick contact widget when ICS gets here? I don't want to lose it.

    I'm too concerned with the security aspect of the face lock. Photos have been shown to fool it. I think I'll stick to pattern or password locks until face lock becomes more secure.

    You can get the Go Widget contact widget from the market. When i installed Go Launcher EX i couldn't use the stock quick contact widget. Its nice. That's an idea for now. Hope we can still keep it tho. Egh, what I'm trying to get at it. If ICS doesn't include quick contacts. You can use Go Widget from the market. There...sorry

    I do like that contact widget! Don't forget another benefit, hardware acceleration!

    Browsing is reported to show definite improvements in speed, and will add tabs.

    Battery life is reportedly improved.

    There's a myriad of other improvements, but they're all benefits of ICS, not specifically benefits of ICS on the Bionic.

    You are absolutely right Nate, but from an even broader security standpoint, look at it this way...it's still harder for a thief to find and use a picture of you than it is to just press the button, especially if you just left your phone lying around and someone picks it up!!

    I feel like if a thief has the ability to find and obtain an actual picture of you to use on your facelock, then you're pretty much screwed already.
