Motorola Droid RAZR And Droid RAZR Maxx To Receive The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Update As Of Q2

Good news for the Motorola Droid RAZR and Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx as the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich firmware update will roll out in Q2 2012. I’ve said it once, and I am saying it once more: I just’ can’t understand why Motorola isn’t the first company to receive the Android updates, considering that the US phone marker was recently acquired by Google. Finally, the Android 4.0 ICS update for the company’s latest smartphones Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR Maxx will hit the aforementioned terminals, followed, later on, by the Bionic.

Motorola Droid RAZR and Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx will receive the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update in the second quarter of the year, while the Bionic owners will have to wait until Q3. You should know that this is the firmware update calendar for the US market, thus if you are reading this from Europe you might have to wait a little bit longer. It seems that the 3G version of the Motorola Xoom tablet will receive the Android 4.0 update in the same time frame (Q2 2012). The 8.2-inch and 10.1-inch Xyboard tablets plus the Motorola Droid 4 and Droid Bionic smartphones will receive the Ice Cream Sandwich update in Q3.

Apparently, Motorola Droid 3 and Motorola Droid X2 will not receive Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich support and Android 2.3 Gingerbread will be best you will get. The majority of smartphones that will receive the ICS update are listed as in being in the evaluation and planning stages since February. Thus, Motorola had enough time to test the new firmware on the devices and the Android 4.0 ICS firmware update will roll out as planned.

As everyone expected, the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for Motorola Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR Maxx will come along with features like Face Unlock, Advanced Multitasking Manager, Built-in Data Planner, Simultaneous HD video and image recording and many other goodies.
