    Ice Cream Sandwich is a Ginger Bread and Honeycomb combined for phones only.

    If you do some digging around on this forum and My Droid World Forum, there was an accidental leak of a version of Gingerbread (2.3) about a month and a half ago. Some of the pros over on xda forums got it (Team Black Hat), and did some tinkering. They ended up with a *rooted* version which could be installed on to the DX using SBF, and would result in you having a fully functional, rooted version of Gingerbread on your DX.

    The other avenue, is to install a custom rom with GB built into it. That is the road I chose to follow - Liberty Gingerbread.

    They're goin crazy... First Dual-Core is barely releasing, but they're expecting Dual-Core in Q3. Gingerbread (2.3) is barely being officially released and now they're doing Ice Cream Sammitch (2.4)???

    Yikes... I'm keeping my upgrade credit into 2012 Q2/Q3...

    There are some *very* interesting phones due to be released in the next 6 months, so that's not a bad idea. :)
