    Just curious whether or not anyone thinks Verizon will be sending out any more OTA updates, such as to ICS, or if DX's are now upgraded as far as Verizon and/or Motorola plan to take them?

    We've probably seen the last official updates from VZW. ICS is geared more toward dual core processor phones with 1gb of ram.

    I agree. Since the X is past EOL, I don't see it getting any more official OTAs.

    Sad to see phones like the DX getting EOL less than one and half years past its launch :|

    Nothing sad about it. 1.5 years in tech speak is a long period. Most technology is obsolete/old in 8-12 months

    Tis the nature of electronics. Not uncommon to see a product life cycle of less than a year...especially mobile phones.

    What I mean is EOL not because of weak hardware specs but rather the manufacturer not willing to waste money and effort on a hardware which wont sell anymore.... I guess that is the case with phones when the same manufacturer releases a newer model in less than a year's time span....

    Why I meant DX aint such a weak hardware is I've been working with in embedded hardware/software industry and I've realized the potential even with quite outdated hardware...
