    Unless someone did some amazing photoshop job on the photo of the screen, I think it might be legit. But think about this at the same time. Best Buy did issue out an apology for the HTC One X release date to the folks that pre-ordered when it indicated an earlier date.

    Just food for thought.

    Wouldn't you know it! I just returned my razr maxx today. Wasn't really that impressed with it. I liked it, but I'd rather wait for some of the newer phones coming out pretty soon. Having ics might have made me keep the maxx. I just wasn't convinced that moto was going to get ics on these razr phones anytime soon.

    I think will be cool to have it because it will be something new but I worry that it will bring new challenges to what has been a very reliable phone so far. I doubt all apps are ready for it and I haven t seen an update that hasn't come with new issues. I just hope theyre ready.

    I will wait until they have root for it and wait until more apps are updated for the Razr and ICS. Just because it works with ICS doesn't mean it will work with the Razr and Blur.

    App developers have been developing on the 4.0 platform for a while now. You won't see much incompatibility really. Where you will find issues with is the stock software that moto uses in motoblur. Not to mention the bloatware that comes included. I'm just hoping that with the release, there will be more stable ICS ROMS to install.

    Keep in mind, one of the biggest things Google preached about with ICS is the closure for software fragmentation.

    Wonder how many Nexus owners will jump ship to the Maxx if they are able to.
    ICS + the superior device.. Ooo.

    Dunno. I definitely love vanilla ICS on the nexus. Won't get that with motoblur.

    what's motoblur? what would be the difference.

    Motoblur is Motorola's custom user interface. I think they try to call it Motorola Application Platform now, but it will always be Blur to me.

    I love both devices to be perfectly honest. But the big problem with Motorola is that they release device upgrades pretty often. Now the next big item from them is the DROID Fighter. And there are some screenshots of a possible Bionic 2. Case in point is the Bionic to the RAZR to the RAZR MAXX.... in how long, a matter of 4 months? That is pretty ridiculous.

    i agree with that, and like i've said in another part of the forum.. Motorola phones really don't hold their value at all.. Iphones might be the only devices that can still be resold for a respectable price.

    Nexus as well, now. Kind of.

    The razr will be at least six months old before the fighter is released.

    They haven't even done the soak test yet so I don't see it being sent out in 5 days... Early May I think is a better guess.

    I've been using Go Launcher on my devices versus using the stock Touch Wiz or Moto Blur on this Maxx. I prefer having all the transitions and customization plus it's fast fast fast. I installed GL on a Gnex at my local vzw to see how it interacted with ics and didnt see any issues. I'm probably one of the few who doesn't really care about the look of ics. I just want it to not screw up my already reliable Maxx.

    Has anybody received updated information from Motorola regarding the Soak test? Other than the email that came out on late Friday. I know that once accepted we are under NDA regarding details of what's included in the Soak test but we should be able to at least confirm more general information such as the Soak test has started.
