    Guys I hinted at last week that Razr fans will love ics and I believe I will prove right. Motorola posted some videos which I will post after the break.

    Yes we know that is international but you can expect that is what we should see on vzw + vzw backup assistance, vz navigator, lets golf 2, madden, need for speed, etc :biggrin:

    What use will the capacitive buttons have once ICS is pushed out? Since on-screen buttons are standard for ICS, will they be redundant, or will there be an accessibility option to turn off the sensors so they don't act as counter-productive? How much screen-area loss will occur? Obviously with 4.3" display, cannot complain about not being able to see anything or do anything.:haha:

    I asked this same question last week. The buttons we have will stay functioning. The on screen buttons will only be for devices that were built with ics as their out of box OS. At least from what I've been told, and could gather. :thumbup:

    That certainly helps things now by a longshot. Tried searching for LTE upload/download speed thread, no such luck, any help?

    I'm honestly tired of hearing "RAZR this, RAZR that, RAZR ICS - RAZR, RAZR, RAZR" - WHAT ABOUT THE BIONIC?

    The Bionic could be seeing ICS as little as one day later than the RAZR (in theory, based on "Q2"; "EARLY Q3"). You'd think the freaking RAZR was the only device on the planet slated to get ICS, from the way people act on this forum.

    I ask this in all seriousness - What on earth is so special about the RAZR? Damn thing is a Bionic minus the removeable battery, basically.

    I don't know of any upload/ download speed threads.. the leaks have gotten more and more stable. And I've heard some say that ics is faster, and others say that it wasn't as fast.

    My personal experience is that I don't have any :) I've been staying on the path with this phone.

    To be frank that is on Motorola and vzw. Based on the ics schedule the razr will get updated to ics in q2 (probably next month) while the bionic q3 even though the bionic was first. The razr is motorola's baby right now and the bionic they will still support but you can tell they put all their weight behind the razr.

    So, theoretically speaking will our GB dual core phones become smoother/faster on ICS? Since it's dual core optimized?

    I would say so, but smoother/zippier would do moreso with ICS OS as-a-whole over sheer power, less wasted calculations, processes, etc. More efficient allocation of available resource with ICS, less errors too I hope.

    ICS is more resource intensive, if anything. Most of the performance improvements will be due to hardware GUI acceleration, and a true multi-core kernel.

    Damnit, well that's too bad, I'm in Central NJ, get good to excellent LTE signal, at my home, 50-75% signal strangth, enough to churn out 14 mbps down, 10 mbps up, fastest speed 22.43 mbps down, 10 up, still impressive on gingerbread, can hardly wait what ICS provides me. Also note-worthy that I am averaging 40-48 hours/charge with LTE always enabled, sending lots of texts, good amount of web-browsing, some youtube and pandora.:biggrin:

    I honestly think it is real close for the RAZR maxx. I would not be surprised to see VZW put ics info on their website after they finish pushing out the nexus update. But that is my guess barring any bugs or issue. I am interested in seeing how the RAZR handle reporting of lte and if it does better with data than the nexus on ics.

    Will webtop 3.0 still allow me to watch web-only content on Hulu since we are losing the Firefox browser?

    Do you have any thoughts on if a new moto device will drop first? Or do you think ics will drop, then the next device?
