Are there any contemporary (1GHz+ dual-core) QWERTY sliders (e.g. like the Droid 4, HTC MyTouch 4G Slide, Samsung Captivate Glide) available with ICS for 3G (AT&T - which may eliminate the Droid 4 as shipped) bands?
Prefer to pay full price (e.g. $800) rather than have a contract.
I'm astonished that the Droid 4 won't get ICS for six months (though an update to my BackFlip took longer), so I would rather buy a phone shipping with ICS at extra cost than wait for a slow locked carrier update.
Thanks. Isn't there usually quite a lag between a phone being previewed at MWC and it being available? I remember the Nokia N95 took a long time to come out.
I certainly could get a random phone and put a hobbyist image on it, but my first choice is to pay the significant coin to get a top-end device (unlocked) and not muck with it too much initially. It's got to be decently solid as a business communications tool for me, which is sometimes antagonistic to having a user-created image on it.
