see the problem is that you (threeline) don't understand. Phones have transformed a lot over the last several years. They are forced to come out with new phones to compete with other phone makers devices.

lets wait and see what the software on the device has too. I mean look at what comes stock on the Razr, Razr Maxx. motocast, quick office pro, intigrated email, printing via bluetooth. Of course all of this is easy to get from the market but most of it you would need to pay for, whereas it is free and comes stock on the Razr series. They keep improving everything on the phones. and this is to threeline... how long ago was the razr announced? I would say that the amount of time from that announcement to the announcement of their next phone would definitely be ample evidence that they are slowing down on how many phones they put out.

Lol. So how many bionic,razor, and Maxx owners still feel they are getting ics anytime soon? Motorola sure can play their customers and suck. Assuming the fighter of course will have ics and the fighter plus months later will promise jellybean.

I am not attacking the gingerbread users, I just think it is garbage how the company is saying one thing and doing another. I feel your pain.

I bet if I go into a verizon retail store the sales people will still try and sell me a maxx or bionic over a nexus for the commission and don't worry ICS will be on those phones soon and is in development.

I don't mind the waiting game, I remember getting gingerbread on my X and it had some problems. I want IC to work smoothly on the razr/maxx. I mean yes they take their time but it could be for a better reason, could be.

we make more money on selling you a nexus. so no your wrong. the razr is just a better phone. you can put GO launcer EX and have a better UI than ICS.

You obviously have no idea how comission works so let me enlighten your ignorant brain it's a percentage based on the selling price of everything. The only reason motorola gets so much support on the sales floor is despite the "poor upgrade support" I see less motorola phones come into my store with their owners pouting while saying what is it doing how can i fix it i see more fascinates, incredibles and lg ally's with issues. They upgrade when it works correctly ICS probably has problems with capacitive buttons or something stupid like that and motorola wont push a update for their devices if the device is likly to fail so have fun with your delusions.

I have VZW but I work at an AT&T retailer & I see more iPhones, Captivates & messaging phones come in for problems other than Atrix/Atrix 2 users. I saw more Evo's & Blackberry's come in for repair than the Photon when I was at a Sprint retailer. That's why I love Moto phones.

BTW, get me on at VZW. Lol.

That's their main selling point, don't worry as soon as ICS is released it will be pushed out. Now, there investigating to see if ICS is even possible on the Razr or can we make more money by making the Fighter with a bigger screen with ICS and after we sell the hell out of that one then we may decide to push ICS out to our other phones.

Motorola, atleast bring this phone as world-edition one.... Show your good face (plus JUMBO BATTERY) to GSM users as well...

I anyday prefer BEST battery life than saving a milli-second in life here and there by a super-fast-QuadCore processor phones comparing Dual-core MAXX...

One of the advantages of quad-core is saving power with the 5th core to run the simple tasks, besides the power advantage. Now its not as good as slapping on a 3000 mAh battery, but it is a helluva lot tthinner. Now if it only it was a perfect world and the manufacturers did both!

Couldn't they have come up with a more awesome name? Like DROID DOMINATE or DROID TERMINATE or something awesome like that? DROID CONQUER, DROID OVERTAKE?

DROID FIGHTER /capslock isn't too bad of a name compared to the "Photon," to name just one

Just watch VZW disappoint us once again. You'll see. VZW is like the Pittsburgh Steelers without Hines Ward.

I mean, I don't get it. It's like AT&T has the Note. Now they have 8 phones or more that are upcoming. All their phones have over a 4.5 inch screen. They have the Samsung Beam that is a projector phone. It's like, VZW doesn't invest in new technology. I don't give a damn how thin a phone is, I don't give a damn about the design as long as I have a phone that has the most updated technology and a big screen. You know what I mean?

No buttons on the bottom. Looks like all ICS phones coming out will have on screen 3 buttons. Maybe thats why the screen is 4.6"!!

For me the big thing that keeps me away from upgrading on Verizon is that no phones have a strong camera. If the Galaxy nexus had a stronger camera (similar to the one on the galaxy sII) and the same battery as the razr maxx I would've bought it. But hey that's an idealistic phone so I shouldn't get too carried away

...you've got to be kidding me.

they better appease us Razr owners by getting ICS out to the Razr and the MAXX when they announce this.

Now you're agreeing with my post? hahaha

Yeah, I thought so. lol

I just said this 2 pages back. I have the Droid Razr Maxx. No updates for any Moto Phones, unless you have the XYBoard.

i'm not agreeing with your post guy and i'll show you why.

"I'll be surprised if this phone "Droid Fighter" will even have ICS" it's pretty obvious in just this picture that it's going to have ICS...

"It seems to me like Motorola hasn't released "ONE" phone with ICS and still no updates to ICS on it's recent released phones i.e. Droid RAZR MAXX." okay so? that's the most that most OEMs have updated so far. big deal.

"...you've got to be kidding me." is me showing disbelief and annoyance about Motorola releasing another Flagship phone after the Razr and the Razr MAXX.

"they better appease us Razr owners by getting ICS out to the Razr and the MAXX when they announce this." i don't care that i haven't gotten ICS yet but i would hope that when Motorola is ready to show the world something of theirs running ICS they'll hold up their promise about updating the Razr ASAP.

Wow! I'm really shocked that you went through so much trouble to copy/paste/dissect my posts. I'm flattered.

Let me return the honor back to you.

it's pretty obvious in just this picture that it's going to have ICS...Do you always believe everything you see from a picture with a black screen? lol

okay so? that's the most that most OEMs have updated so far. big deal. Are you really not seeing the big picture here? Failed Verizon/Motorola promises have not been met. Fragmentation is growing at an alarming rate. Motorola keeps silent and delays the update, if not indefinitely. It was set to release Q2, but has been changed to "“Evaluation & Planning” with “Further details to follow”. recently purchased by Google and still falls short on updating their flagship phones.

"...you've got to be kidding me." is me showing disbelief and annoyance about Motorola releasing another Flagship phone after the Razr and the Razr MAXX. I have to agree with this statement, but when you think this phone will officially launch? I wouldn't get my hopes up on it. Right now it's a picture nothing more to me.

"they better appease us Razr owners by getting ICS out to the Razr and the MAXX when they announce this." i don't care that i haven't gotten ICS yet but i would hope that when Motorola is ready to show the world something of theirs running ICS they'll hold up their promise about updating the Razr ASAP.Yeah so? That's all I've been saying and you took your own post and responded to it. Good work.

it's no trouble but i see you went through the same so called trouble to dissect my posts so i suppose the honor is all mine.

no but i speculate and judging from the evidence i have so far which is this picture it's more likely to be running ICS than Gingerbread because of the fact that there's no Capacitive Buttons on it.

i've said this before. Motorola has made it clear that the Razr is taking priority in their plans for updates. what i believe this means is that Moto is actually readying builds of ICS for the Razr and sending them to Verizon but they're not clearing them. Moto has no control over that. all they can do is fix whatever Verizon says to fix and send the newer builds to them for evaluation. this is the case with all OEMs and it's happened before between Motorola and Verizon with the Droid X and again when Moto was prepared to unlock the Bootloaders for their devices on Verizon but Verizon didn't allow it.

well just a picture sure has gotten a mighty rise out of you huh? you're just spouting meaningless nonsense.

you obviously feel cheated or something that Moto hasn't pushed ICS to the Razr and what i'm saying is that i don't really care that it hasn't happened yet because i know it will. good things come to those who wait.
