I don't think we have to worry about getting ICS. Look at the phones released last year. The Incredible, DroidX, Droid2 (in all variations) have all been updated or are in the process of being updated to GB (the 2nd major OS update for each of them). The OG Droid even got 2 official OS updates (Eclair & Froyo).

So far the Fascinate looks to be the only top tier android released last year that will not be getting a 2nd major OS update. Considering how long it took them for an official Froyo update, it doesn't look good for GB.

Beyond that the only phones that have received one update or less are midrange androids (LG Ally, Sammy Continuum, Moto Citrus, Moto Devour).

With the rumored specs on the Vigor (dual core 1.5GHz, 1 GB RAM, HD screen) I'd actually be surprised if they also didn't get at least 2 major OS updates. HTC has been very good about supporting older devices on Verizon (except for maybe the Eris).

The only thing that kinda sucks is not being able to take advantage of the home buttons on screen vs the dedicated capacitive buttons we currently have.
