    The only thing I've heard for a long time is that it should be coming out by the end of the first quarter of this year. Has there been anything else announced besides that or are we just left in the dark about it?

    Yeah, I heard end of this quarter too, that's fine by me. This way, they will tease us with the S3 and to make us feel better give us ICS to play with on our S2 until we can run out and buy the S3 a few months later. :-)

    I'd be surprised if this phone was updated to ICS by March 31st, but anything is possible. Still, I wouldn't keep your hopes too high.

    I agree with this and I think that March 31st is optimistic. We haven't even started to see leak builds yet. I wonder if anyone has been monitering the RDF pages.

    There is a experimental alpha build of CM9 which is ICS based on xda, but many things are broken, and the ROM will be makeshift moreorless until there is an official kernel that the developers have to work with

    Current rumor mill points to Aprilish. But take anything you hear right now with a grain of salt.

    Due to Samsung's reputation i'm not getting my hopes up. I keep telling myself that I won't get ICS so that I won't be disappointed if it doesn't happen. Just about any other phone company and i'd be waiting on pins and needles.....

    I wonder if the Swype ICS build being finalized has contributed to the wait. Swype mentioned that they were close.

    Either way, I just hope that the capacitive buttons take the place of the virtual ones and that I can still use the search button.

    Yeah it'll be interesting to see what manufacturers do with the capacitive buttons. I'd imagine they will stay active and the on screen buttons will be removed. Many phones (including ours) would lose too much screen real estate if the OS used the on screen buttons. However, in the case of my HTC View, the Honeycomb update completely disabled the capactive buttons in favor of Honeycomb's on screen button layout, so I guess anything is possible. I really don't see it happening on a phone though.

    I agree. The whole taking away the search button and bringing in a search bar that you can't remove sucks. I use the search button all the time.

    I'm just hoping we get CM9 soon. Can't wait.
