    I just spoke with a Motorola representative today and asked if they was going to have a ice cream sandwich build for the DROID 3 and after waiting almost a half hour the lady come back and said she didn't know at this point if there will be a android 4.0 (ice) build for DROID 3. Now how is that fair to pay the money we pay for these devices and we got to be stuck with a out dated operating system when DROID 3 is not that old it was before the bionic who agree's?????

    There is no reason why the D3 wouldn't get ICS, and it most likely will.

    I wouldn't worry too much about it.

    Near as I can tell there must be some differences at at the MB level between the D3 and Bionic.... My guess is that there won't be any issues but I'm guessing they'll not say until they know for sure. Nobody at the storefront level is going to know until the testing is done.

    Hopefully we see a Motorola version but it will probably be mid 2012 by the time we start getting it. Hashcode is working on bringing a CM9 based version of ICS to the Droid 3 and progress has been pretty good. Motorola's ICS will probably have Motoblur and a bunch of bloatware.

    I think a lot of reps only know what they have to know to perform their job at a satisfactory level (like most people). You might luck out and get to talk to a knowledgeable rep, but I think you're more likely to get a super-friendly people-person who doesn't have to know, isn't really interested in that and can't help you there.

    I am aware of that. I'll install it when everything works.

    I flashed a ROM once that worked perfectly, except for bluetooth. Everything but one thing worked. Bluetooth was broken. It drove me so crazy that I flashed back to stock. I don't even use bluetooth. I just can't stand when something doesn't work right.

    hashcode will more likely have ICS done before motorola and verizon decide if they want to update it.

    I don't expect ICS for D3 for sometime. With the D4 coming MOTO will wanna show off that phone with all the bells and whistles. I expect the D3 to get ICS by summer of next year. I hope I'm wrong.

    you are, hashcode saved us all. The only issues [that will actually take time to solve] are the camera, a few audio codecs, and the 'b' key. ima say it will probably be daily driver by christmas. every 2-3 days hes fixed a new major bug. hes a genius !

    To be honest I like Liberty Rom better. ICS feels too beta for me. I REALLY hate the new app switching. It's a lot slower to jump in between apps.

    Thats because its Alpha stage right now. He has been making great progress with it. Just a few more tweaks and it will most likely be better then what Moto/Verizon puts out.

    I think its a given that the D4 will come with ICS and that without any major work to port ICS to the d3, it will still take the better part of the year to get it deployed by Moto and Verizon. So your prediction of summer might just be a bit optimistic, but I'd bet you're not far from the mark.

    I was JUST going to make a new thread asking this same question! So in general you guys think that us D3 owners will eventually get ICS ota? Is there any other ota updates on track or expected for the D3? The last one seemed to fix any issues so I don't know what else they could do to the phone before ics...

    The phone will get it. I cant see why it wouldn't. The phones barely 4months old. It will get it, eventually at least.
