    Does anyone know approximately when it will be available for a Razr update? Just a ballpark estimate is reasonable. Sucks that it wasn't just pre loaded....I would have waited for the nexus but the phones design honestly didn't appeal to me....no offense to nexus users...I think its still a nice phone but I admire my Razr.

    At first I was really waiting for the Nexus but it was taking to long and my OG droid finally went toes up, I got the RAZR. The more I use my RAZR and the more I see of the NExus the more I am happy with my choice. Once I get ICS on it, all will be right in the world.

    Moving forward there wont be permanent soft keys on the bottom of the phone. They will be on the screen.

    Actually, when ICS arrives for the Razr I was informed that if your native buttons comes standard on the device that is what will still remain as your permanent buttons.. ie ... if you have them on your phone you will still have them after the update and still need to use them,no virtual buttons if your device has softkeys already.

    It will be. Check it out on YouTube. There was an interview with the maker of ICS done, its about a 45 min long. Pretty interesting stuff IMO.

    I read this article on Engadget Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich review -- Engadget and it sure sounds to me like the Blur UI on our Razrs was designed like ICS. I had to read the part about being able to change out the shortcuts on the dock twice and then check my phone and be sure that in fact you can change the shortcuts. You can also re-size widgets so we already have parts if ICS on the Razr.

    From what I understand motoblur no longer exists thanks to google buying motorola which is why the phone feels so light and responsive no more blurbloat
