    Pretty sure Matt misinterpreted something he heard around the office.
    The update is expected within the next 2 weeks.. unless some major bug is discovered we should see the soak test begin within 10 days from what I've been told.

    Has anyone ever owned a "quality" phone made by Motorola? Every one that I ever owned going all the way back to the Razer had to be replaced at least once.

    My V3 was awesome, even tho I had to put up with TMo... my V3M was great. My Q9c was good, but a bit of a letdown just because of what I was hoping for out of a smartphone. My OG Droid was a tank. My DX was probably the best of them all until the GB update forced me to get a replacement and my Bionic is excellent.

    I am sure one will upload the update so people can do it manually instead of waiting.

    V9m is my all time favorite phone. Software sucked, but it was great hardware.

    why are they even working on this if it is going to takr 30 - 60 more days ?
    They said we would have ICS 6 weeks aftert the release, isn't that about 30 -60 days from now.

    Startac -> Razr -> Rockr -> Droid -> Bionic

    All my cell phones (no other mfr) have been rock solid. Moto is the only mfr that makes phones to Mil Specs. Being a Quality Assurance Rep for the DOD, I know how much that means. I buy the famous 700.00 hammers (not to mention jet engines for the Harrier and pumps for subs - underwear too) and know what processes and testing goes into the equipment our boys and girls overseas depends on.

    Nothing but Moto for me.

    I agree with you, why even release if it is going to be the first of the year when some devices should start seeing ICS? Unless they are modifying this OTA and incorporating the necessary mods to make smooth transition for ICS!

    A person can dream right?

    Herein lies the Apple's greatest advantage... dedicating all their resources towards a single flavor of the OS, for a single piece of hardware. It's the same advantage they've always held when competing with the PC.
