Nobody knows the answers to your questions. Motorola is keeping this under tight wraps, for all we know know, we may be done with at gb, and the only way to get ics is with unofficial roms.

I am only speculating at this point, but I would assume having an unlocked boot loader should have no effect on the update, but if u can install a custom rom , why bother with the bloat ware?

If you are anything but stock, i.e. rooted, frozen/deleted any Blur apps, etc., you won't be able to OTA until you are back to stock again. As for the unlocked bootloader, no idea if that will stop you.

Motorola has "officially" added the Atrix to the ICS update list:

Just an FYI, I agree that staying with a custom ROM is the way to go.

Just flash CM9 now or wait until Neutrino CM9 comes out and you'll have ICS and no junk/bloat with it.

Most people know that Moto-ICS wont be that great...what we are looking forward are the official ICS Tegra 2 drivers for our device, so we can actually have a fully working and stable CM9 rom.
