And remember, Jelly Bean contains Project Butter. We're going to see very smooth UI interactions with this update.
Yeah, PB&J (B) make for a great combination :P

I do agree that the UI on this thing is very light, comparatively speaking. Seems that at least one company has a mind to do things correctly, huh?

Thanks for mentioning this - I was debating on whether I should unlock or not, and if this is a reason to not unlock, I am all for it.

Hell, my HTC Rezound just got ICS yesterday, think of how long (if ever) it will be before Jelly Bean comes out for it. I really wish these companies would stick to the hardware and let Google take care of the software.
My Moto BIONIC has a very nice streamlined Blur that runs great on ICS. I know that previous version of Blur were very heavy and resource intensive, but the Blur on the RAZR and BIONIC are a lot more lightweight than before, and made them almost tolerable on a 1.0 GHz clocked CPU running GB. When the ICS leaks came out, I stopped putting alt launchers and running ROMs b/c the Bluer on ICS is much more responsive and smoother than ever before, and I'm one of the unlucky ones that has yet to see an OC - I'm still running at 1.0 GHz on the leaks.

However, other than a mini lag when waking it up, this tablet is infinitely smoother than my phone....
