why wouldn't all recently released phones be updated to ICS? I thought Google had that announcement that any android phone will stay software current for at least 18 months guaranteed?

Since the stock UI is now heavy like a touch Wiz or a Motoblur, I think It should be easy for phones similarly spec'd to the Nexus to keep up with it in the update department.

Just gonna boil down to the carriers and manufacturers still of course.

End of Quarter 1 would be 5 months from now which would be spectacular. If it's "sometime in the 2nd quarter then we can anticipate a up to a long ass 8 month wait for ICS... OR you could pick up a fully equipped Galaxy S III before then :-(

I, very unfortunately, doubt we'll see a Galaxy S III by that time though. :-(

Expect your GSII update to ICS approx. 12 months from now maybe, then they'll halt the ICS roll out for another couple of months due to problems, after that Ole Sammy will ignore the SGII and pump the SGIII with ICS down your throats! Don't go for it! I did twice with the Epic and Moment!

i...guess not? o:
hm. it would be something else if it got a stock ICS upgrade. there would be so much joy in the world. they might do what i think Motorola is doing with Honeycomb and slightly customize it with their own icons and such but leaving the stock feel intact or they may do like they did with the Tab 10.1 and skin it in an update later on.

Should I get AT&T galaxy s 2 or galaxy nexus? And will nexus ever be available to AT&T customers on contract?

With AT&T, get the Galaxy 2, and you will get ice cream, someday....

If your in need of a phone now I would go with the GS2 just as I did. :) For one it has a better processor then the Nexus and it also has a better cam then the Nexus. Also another reason is that there is not any guarantees that the Nexus will be coming to AT&T and like networkdood mentioned it is just a matter of time before we get the upgrade to ICS.

i'd say to wait for an LTE device. that's obviously what AT&T plans to push further along in the future so that makes AT&T's HSPA+ like the dead man walking now not to mention it's the worst "4G" you can get. you never know. AT&T might just get a version of the Droid Razr in the near future being that Motorola released a phone like the Atrix 2 for AT&T's budget market so i'm sure they'll want a high-end device in their line-up as well and there's still a good possibility that the Nexus will be made available to AT&T with LTE connectivity as well.
