Samsung Nexus S

While the Nexus One is being left out, the Gingerbread-based Samsung Nexus S will get the ICS bump at some point. The Nexus S precedes the Galaxy Nexus in the vaunted "pure Google" Nexus line.

Motorola Xoom

The Xoom tablet, which is underperforming in sales volume, will get ICS, according to Motorola. We're guessing that includes the just- announced, Xoom 2 and Xoom 2 Media Edition tablets that are launching in the U.K. and Ireland in two weeks.

LG confirmed it's bringing ICS to its premium Android phone, noting on its Facebook page: "LG is currently in the process of planning the ICS OS update for the LG Optimus 2X as well as other LG high-end smartphones. Detailed information on the ICS OS update schedule for specific models will be announced once the ICS OS is publicly released by Google."

Sony Xperia

Facebook is a popular place to chat up ICS, it seems. The Dutch division of Sony Ericsson said via Facebook that Xperia phones will get Ice Cream Sandwich someday.

Calling All Gingerbreads

We're going to go out on a limb and guess most, if not all, Gingerbread phones will get the ICS bump, just as Android 2.2 "Froyo" phones were boosted to Gingerbread this year. Indeed, it's important to note that HTC, usually the quickest Android OEM to upgrade to new platform versions, will likely boost some of its core Gingerbread gadgets, such as this Thunderbolt, to ICS.
