Re: ICS ETA
While I get your point, just to be "that guy", If we are talking only Verizon, the Droid 3 came out with GB in July, and the DInc 2 gpt GB in early July as well.

Of course, the Nexus One had GB in February, but that's a special case, obviously.
I agree with this. I believe that Verizon's approval process is too unpredictable to allow a solid timeframe.

That doesn't happen with Android phones. In fact, if Moto told Verizon that they wanted the same terms as Apple, or even similar, I am sure that Verizon would point out that Samsung, HTC, LG, etc., would be more than willing to take up the sku slack if Motorola did not want to sell on Verizon anymore.
They tread all over Android but let Apple do what they want with IOS updates.
Verizon is really starting to annoy me lately with their political crap regarding Android.
There are many, many people who would leave Verizon for an iPhone if Verizon dropped it (I almost did; if AT&T had a signal here, I would have switched in 2009 - instead, I bought an Android phone. No looking back for me, though.) I am sure that by comparison nobody is going to leave Verizon to go to AT&T for an Atrix 4G. That's just the reality.
