Default Droid 3 POSSIBLY getting ICS

Saw this on droidforums and figured I could post here. It's just listed as an "upgrade" but not necessarily ICS. There was another list the confirmed ICS for other devices, but this list doesn't specify ICS as the upgrade. In fact, it just stated "Software Upgrade", not OS upgrade.

Unfortunately, I believe the update they are talking about is 5.7.906. If they ENDED testing on March 14th, and 5.7.906 hasn't been released yet, I would be willing to bet that it is not ICS.

Its gotta be the 5.7.906 update or similar since the zip file for 906 is 224.85 MB which would round up to 225MB. Plus I highly doubt we'll get ICS before the Razr or the bionic.

I second that. I don't think Motorola would ever come up with an ICS update for D3 as pretty soon D3 will be celebrating its 1st birthday. D3 was also not a money spinner for Verizon like the earlier versions. So, the most we'll be getting are the custom ones. Sorry if i sound pessimistic but its my opinion.

https://forums.motorola.com/pages/00add97d6c still lists the milestone 3/xt860 and droid 3 as "evaluation & planning" for ics updates, been that way since they announced their plans to update other devices.
