    I'm wondering if today's announcement from MOTOROLA concerning projected schedule of updates to ICS is a direct result of GOOGLE's just announced OK from the US & EU to buy MOTOROLA.

    Coincidence?Hmmmmm...........

    Either way,things are looking better for us MO PHO's, & MOTOHEADS in general.

    Now,if the MO PHO & LAPDOCK 500 has an update in the meantime for 100% compatibility from MOTO,all would be well in the universe....... :p (At least in my little corner of it). :)

    Rooting as soon as CM9 is sorted and stable with everything working.

    I already have an account over there but rarely use it. I was rooted on the Photon for awhile but when they came out with an update for the bugs I was having I just accepted it and lost root. I was watching them get CM7.2 ready forget photon for awhile but lost interest as soon as they said they were doing CM9.

    I hope July is the date,but,the original & latest update from MOTOROLA only states Q3 2012 as a release window for the PHOTON, & not a specific month.

    Nowhere in this article is a source cited for the July 2012 release date.

    Not trying to be a pessimist,or anything of that nature.Just don't want anyone getting their hopes up for JULY 2012 to come & go & be disappointed/upset w/MOTOROLA if ICS isn't on our phones by then.

    I hope I'm not the only mofo that doesn't want ICS on my MoPho.

    Why wouldn't you want ICS to replace GINGERBREAD?

    Just curious.........

    Hmmm wondering where they are getting July from? That's some strong wording used.

    SLASHGEAR has edited their original quote to reflect Q3 2012 as the release window.
    I'm guessing they got bombarded w/requests for info conformation links regarding their original JULY 2012 ICS party.

    Well, technically speaking, July is in Q3 (July-September)...so July would be the earliest possibility if the Q3 projection holds true.

    Yeppers,JULY would be most welcome,earlier if possible.
    I know I'm sounding like a broken record,but,I'm guessing it will be later than sooner,especially if LAPDOCK 100/500 compatibility is in the mix.
    I'm guessing this to be the case since 100% LAPDOCK 500 capability isn't realized yet.

    Again,just pure speculation,nothing more.

    To a certain extent, yes, but at the same time, ours was released prior to all the Verizon flagship Moto devices.

    Cannot. Wait.

    I've been hoping that Motorola would update the Photon 4G to ICS ever since I saw my friend/co-worker's Galaxy Nexus.

    I think the Photon would benefit from a ICS update. My brother has a Xoom tablet and it improved with the ICS update. He said it was well worth it.

    i really hope they will bring the update a bit sooner, since June and July are the months that historically Sprint announces and sells newer phones.
