would ICS update then possibly make it to the Inspire 4G??? I really want to get the update if possible, otherwise strongly considering all high-end dual-core phones out there in the market right now, as well as the One XL. Inspire 4G is not good enough for me in terms of the specs, but I really love the design of this phone, its really nice.

Doesn't seem to meet the same hardware specs as the phones listed... single core, not as much RAM...

doesn't seem to meet the hardware requirements? it has basically the exact same hardware as the Sensation XL, Rhyme, Thunderbolt, Incredible S, Desire S, and also the Desire HD, which the Inspire is.... Those phones are all listed. It will get ICS

This is great news! I really need the performance boost that ICS is suppose to bring b/c I am on my 4th Sensation and getting a 5th is out of the question. It just has to last me until Sprint releases its LTE network and the Galaxy Nexus then its adios T Mobile.

My Desire HD is 4th on the list... If only its update would also be so... Not expecting it before Q3.

Evo and TBolt have different specs, the processor in the TB is better and can handle more.
