I didn't get a chance to check the Microsoft press release so thanks for posting those links. I'll definitely have to check them out later.
So my phone saga continues... I've had my Razr Maxx for about 24 hours now. It's a nice device, but I'm having some problems with it. It's definitely not as smooth as my Nexus. Most menus have quite a bit of lag in them and I'm hoping ICS will fix that. It also seems that many things aren't formatted properly for the screen, as in things are cut off. I wonder if that's because of Gingerbread, or that the screen is a little smaller, or both? Finally, whenever it vibrates, it makes quite a loud rattling noise, like something is loose inside. These are things I'm not sure I can live with, but what's more important... lag or making a phone call?
I'm about to call Verizon to see if they will send me another Razr Maxx.
