I hope they will include the original ICS lockscreen and not the slide on. It feels 2.3.4 lockscreen..

Still, native videocalls are usefull if you have someone (like your girlfriend) to make the call...

I wish Sony provides Xperia phones with native video calls.
It has proven VERY successful with Samsung and there are millions of consumers eager to get video calls straight out of the box, no data plans or WiFi connections required!

I have Sony Ericsson Xperia Play.
I look forward to ICS for my. Mobile.
One improvement I am hoping for is that the finished version of the texting app
Will allow words added to the predictive text user dictionary to be accesible as when I add words to the dictionary the new words don't show and also it should have upright phone texting pad as well as the qwerty mode.
Extra modes for camera would be good and video call mode from phone and Skype.

Motorola is in the process of being taken over by Google for $12.5 billion, the biggest acquisition in the Californian company’s history.

MAYBE things will change for Motorola.

At this point Motorola should really put their heads down in shame at the utter joke they are. HTC, Samsung, LG and now Sony have all made progress towards ICS and are showing clear signs of progress, while all MotoJoke can do is whinge how difficult it all is! Fine then, stop making mobile phones and leave it to the professionals, of which you are clearly not a member any more.
