    I saw on engadget that RAZR won't be getting ICS till early 2012... I would expect Bionic shouldnt be far behind, you all agree?

    either way, as soon as an ICS rom is out for Bionic, i'll be on it. ICS looks soo smooth.

    I would expect it on the bionic before the razr, that's just my opinion.

    Will depend on how long it takes Moto to inject it with their bloat. :D

    lol could be, but on the other hand, with Google purchasing MotoMobile, maybe we will see less bloat with it .. one can only hope :)

    It's odd... A lot of the stuff ICS adds UIwise the Bionic already does? Like the side swiping app drawer, the folders app drawer thing, notifications you can X out one at a time etc...

    Kind of makes me wonder if they somehow already knew a lot of the upcoming features, and got their phone ready to take advantage?

    Maybe just wishful thinking.

    The individual clearing of notifications has been there since the Droid X.

    I tend to agree, but I think that SEC approval of the acquisition, plus the time to integrate MM into Google, would be long enough to suggest you wouldn't see a real change in Moto's offerings for another year.

    UNLESS Google convinces them to sell stock Android phones - full Google experience - not a reduction of bloat but its complete elimination!

    I am curious to see what they will do with the soft buttons. I hope we don't end up with two rows of buttons.

    I've been told the on-screen buttons will be disabled and you will continue to use the phone's buttons.

    Yeah it would suck to have a bunch of outdated pointless buttons on the bottom of the phone.

    You can swipe away the on screen buttons even on a phone without dedicated buttons
