    Pretty awesome that Samsung intends to update not only the S3, but the S2 to JB. They seem to do a good job eventually putting out updates, even if it takes forever.

    I'm honestly surprised Motorola is updating the RAZR series to JB- they're notorious for abandoning phones.

    Sony also does a good job with their upgrades- if some of the 2011 line gets JB, that would be awesome. I'm a bit sad they had to abandon the Xperia Play on Gingerbread, but I can understand that, I guess. They prioritized the gaming experience first, which on both their beta ICS ROM and the aftermarket ROMs like CM9, it's clear gaming performance and compatibility took a hit. Not to mention the thing has something like 512MB of internal memory for both the OS and applications.

    HTC... HTC is slipping. The Rezound JUST got ICS yesterday. I think they owe it to their Rezound adopters to push out a JB upgrade, but they're withdrawing from markets, and their revenue predictions for the future have looked grim.

    I'm surprised Razr was on the list too! Very cool! Of course, my tablet (Toshiba Thrive) is not on there but they haven't even gone from HC to ICS yet. I love my tablet. It might as well be a laptop but it seems that Toshiba has dropped the ball on it.

    I see RAZR on the list, but no mention of Bionic. I am going to be VERY angry if Bionic doesn't get JB, as it would be somewhat trivial to port the RAZR version over. Of course, they haven't even given us ICS officially yet, and "early Q3 2012" is over by most people's definition of the term.

    I would think that the specs for the Bionic are plenty robust enough to handle Jelly Bean if the Razr can. Moto needs to start supporting the Bionic better.

    Meanwhile, my Droid 4 still doesn't have ICS. I read here that it would be by this summer (which is almost over). Anyone have any news on this?

    Unfortunately for us Rezound owners, HTC's best Verizon phone and really best HTC device not part of the One series probably won't get jelly bean. Verizon and HTC hate this phone.

    Hey DG, just curious...where did the info for these phones/tabs come from? Was it a compilation of the various manufacturers' websites, or else-wise? I am most curious (as you would expect) regarding the RAZRs.

    I had the Bionic, then finally got the Razr Maxx. Updated to ICS then rooted. It would be kick a$$ if Razr got the JB. Just being on the list is pretty promising. I gave up the Bionic because there was slow love just for the ICS. I'm not seeing it getting JB.
    Well here's to hoping to get JB for the Razr :beer2:

    I think the D4 and Bionic should be updated to 4.1 because their specs are nearly identical to the razr
