But things have changed drastically for those with the handset. Rumors started circulating on Tuesday that the Motorola ATRIX 2 was the subject of a Motorola soak test. For those not familiar with this, a soak test is when Motorola asks for a small number of device owners to test a new update. Having a small number of phones testing a new software build at one time means that if something does goes wrong, the damage is limited to only a few phones.
A leaked screenshot shows that the soak test for the Motorola ATRIX 2 does appear to be related to the Android 4.0 update, Android 4.0.4 to be precise. Now we wonder about Motorola's intentions for the original Motorola ATRIX 4G and the Motorola PHOTON 4G, both of which were also listed by the manufacturer as having "further plans coming soon".
