    They need to update their chart. Q2 is almost over and it isn't even in the testing phase.

    Maybe they did update the chart... that could be good news if they did and are still saying Q2. I assume when they are in "testing" phase, that means Soak Test. If soak test started tomorrow, the OTA could be as soon as Monday or Tuesday.

    EDIT: They did update the chart... so that is a good sign.

    Yeah, i'm pretty sure that the "development" phase includes internal and carrier testing. Only once it starts soak testing does it change to "Testing". This is due to the fact that this chart is for general public consumption, and if they said it was in "testing", everybody would be complaining that they didn't get a soak test invite yet.

    EDIT: I believe the reason the chart was updated yesterday is due to the Bionic. Our 5.9.905 build went official, so we are still on track for "early Q3 2012" release. I suspect that if our update hadn't passed, our ICS date would have been pushed back.

    development means motorola is still loading more bloat from verizon. testing means they are testing whether or not the bloat works

    It was also updated to show that the XOOM update began in June.

    I'm with the group that would rather have a fully functional OS that works properly right away than get it early with bugs. However, I feel like this is taking a very long time to come out. I read about this phone getting ICS before I bought it. Thats why I got the phone but I didnt think it would take this long to come out. Is this a usual amount of time?

    Most businesses use the fiscal calendar for time frames. So right now we are entering the last month of the first Quarter on. The fiscal calendar.

    Fiscal years vary from company to company. Motorola's fiscal year runs with the calendar year. So right now, we're nearing the end of Q2 for Motorola.

    Pretty sure those references are for calendar quarters.

    Fiscal calendars have quarters as well. Normally the fiscal year starts in October and ends in. September.

    But anyway, I've never seen an update for any VZW phone come out with out several rumored release dates.

    Yeah, typically when companies announce public availability for things by quarter, they go by the calendar quarter rather than the fiscal quarter. But in the case of Motorola, the two are one in the same.

    Fiscal years vary. October-September is what the federal government uses, so it's been adopted by many companies. But there's no set way for a fiscal year to run. It's entirely dependent on what any given company wants to use. Many companies use July-June, and others, such as Motorola, use the calendar year.

    Webtop works without a doc! Some apps do not run well under webtop but phone mode seems to help.

    I think it came to my wifi Xoom in January. They're probably referring to the 4G tablets.

    Xil must be looking at the international WiFi Xoom which says it's in development for a Q2 rollout. The US WiFi Xoom clearly says that ICS is available and that it was released in January, and the US 3G/LTE Xoom clearly says that ICS is available as well. It looks like the chart is up to date.

    It seems to me that it took forever to get Froyo (and Flash compatibility) on the OG Droid. So yes, in a way this delay is usual. At least for Motorola.
