    Dear respected community of android sages,

    I am interested in Ice Cream Sandwich more than I am in the Galaxy Nexus. My question is what about other smartphones should indicate whether that phone has the capacity to not only simply run ICS, but to run it smoothly and effectively? Even as smooth as the Galaxy Nexus? For example it bothers me that a phone I am considering, the Galaxy S2, is more than 5 months old while the ICS is brand new. Does that not suggest that a Galaxy S2 once upgraded to ICS might experience some hiccups simply because it may not be able to handle some of the newer innovations in the ICS OS?

    That leads me into another question: what new phone, or relatively new phone, based on its general hardware and/or memory capacities, would be able to go toe to toe with the Galaxy Nexus in terms of the flawless functionality of the ICS OS? I understand the Motorala Razr is expected to run ICS early next year, but I am limited to at&t phones. So I would welcome any suggestions for phones that keep in mind my carrier restriction. (Does anyone know if HTC is cooking up something for at&t that will compete with the S2 and/or Galaxy Nexus? HTC holiday anyone...?)

    Thanks,

    literate novice
