    I'm not sure why people are saying we wont see ICS before 2013......typically with Motorola for their newer phones we see updates every 2-3 months. The Bionic has now been out what 5 months roughly? Since it came out we have seen 2 official OTA updates. Since the most recent one came out in early Feb, i'd say it is safe to assume we will see ICS released in April/May. I just hope that it is a more stable version of ICS than 4.0.3 is on my Xoom...

    And also because a verizon store employee said it. The store reps rarely know more than what I can find here at droid forums. I hope you are right Pillmuzik. The current version is solid for me, but i'm always up for some ice cream. :biggrin:

    I have been toying with Droid Th3orys ICS rom.....it is very nice and I think I would prefer his version over the one that Verizon shoves down our throats.....especially the WiFi tether program it comes with. I dont use it as a daily driver yet because I am very dependent on my bluetooth headset and that isnt ready for prime time yet (tons o static)

    but the funny thing is I now may never see ICS on my Bionic because it came down the other day that my company, instead of letting us expense part of our cell phone bill, is now going to provide us with company paid phones. They asked for my input on which one and I got everyone into a HTC Rezound....... so basically I think I am just going to cancel my contract all together and save myself 200/month

    I wonder if they would see the humor in my rooting the company phone and putting on custom ROMs :D

    What company do you work for? I'll drop my resume today! My company gave us pos Blackberrys. It is OS6 and the speed can be measured with a calendar. Then they said we could have an app that would allow me to access company email with my personal phone. I thought that be good until I read the fine print. I have to abide by company policy for phone use. If I were to lose my phone for more than 24 hours they would slick the entire phone. No thanks!

    I don't know, knowing Google it seems more like it would me "Key Lime Pie"

    That or "Kugelhopf"

    Castroville: Little Alsace of Texas

    DISCLAIMER: It helps to have a "Kugelhopf" pan to make the recipe in the above article - but apparently a 6-cup Souffle dish will also suffice.

    According to What's Next For Android? this is what they were expecting for ICS:

    -Automatic privacy screen when browsing pornography
    -Valid form of ID in continental US and parts of EU
    -Native CueCat support
    -Calls your mother on her birthday

    When did Verizon get into the business of developing operating systems? If HTC wants to put ics on the Thunderbolt, good for them. If Motorola doesn't want to put ics on the phones you listed (2 of which you probably wouldn't want to attempt it on anyway), blame Motorola.
