    Just wondering. I Like to stay ahead on OS and was wondering if it will be compatible with either or both the Honeycomb or IceCream OS?

    Thanks

    No reason to think it wouldn't be, the processor and specs show it to be more than up for the job.

    I just watched the Galaxy Nexus event...ICS (Android 4.0) utilizes on-screen navigation buttons. How is that supposed to work with the Droid RAZR?

    Hmm idk, but most importantly I watched that announcement also and I noticed how they skipped the mp level of the front and rear cameras, they do state 1080p video. But all sources say 5mp rear and 1.3mp front. But they never dispute it or state otherwise during the vid. Hmmmmmm.....

    I would imagine you could do either.

    Just saw this article at Engadget...apparently the Nexus S (which has physical buttons) is getting ICS and most Gingerbread devices will get it eventually as well...good news

    I'd be interested to see what hardware can handle ICS. There are GB devices with 600mhz CPUs out there.

    I was always under the impression android was a hardware friendly OS.

    Yes ICS will be the new OS for most newer devices. Probably going to need at least 512mb of RAM and a 1GHZ processor or else it will be pretty laggy. MPs don't really matter, so yes the galaxy nexus will probably take better pics than most 8mp cameras.a

    If it is a phone more than likely it will have gingerbread or ics, and because honeycomb is for tablets, etc not phones, I can not think of a phone that runs honeycomb stock

    ICS is the unifying OS between tabs and phones.

    I don't think I will go after the nexus on the camera features alone.
