If you snapped up a Droid RAZR or RAZR MAXX – and some of you must have, since RAZR MAXX sales beat out the iPhone 4S on Verizon last quarter – then you are no doubt excited by the news that today is the day that your handset finally gets its serving of Ice Cream Sandwich. While enthusiasts will be thrilled, there are also thousands of users for whom the update will be unexpected, and may even prove confusing at first, given the large number of changes to apps and the appearance of Motoblur.
To help pump up the excitement and tone down the confusion, Motorola has released a promotional video showing off many of the new features coming with Android 4.0, while also providing resources to help users that aren’t quite sure what to make of their operating system suddenly changing so drastically. And if you’re considering purchasing one of the Droid RAZRs as your next device, the video also acts as something of an advertisement.
I'm super impressed with Motorola. They came from being one of the worst in UI, and gave it a big step in the right direction with there latest UI. And this new UI in my opinion is one of the best out there. At the same time, keeping tons of ICS looks and feels.

Sad thing is that viewing desktop sites has always been possible on Android, but recently it has become more and more difficult because of more and more sites coming out with mobile versions of their sites. Also, tabbed browsing has been around for what seems like ever.
I'm rooting for you.
I have Atrix 2 but hope all the good stuff you are baking into the ICS for Razr will be same as for Atrix 2...
I couldn't hold out and temporarily got a HTC One X and really don't like it...
So common Moto...
I'm hanging on to my Atrix 2 and hoping...

other than the late ics update(and besides its the exact same thing as stock ics with some icons in the framwork-res changed and some custom apps and a new launcher) being really really behind schedule(htc sense and touchwiz came faster than this) I really like this.
If only they would unlock the bootloader on the ics update or a permanant hole is revealed I will go buy one tommmorow
Yep, I pretty much have the release with .211 - got 16 hrs of battery life with normal use recently. Even better when you use TiBu to delete the bloatware or when moto lets us unlock the bootloader, so that we do not have to use safestrap to download a custom ROM - that will be great.
I'm jealous! Moto better release ICS for DROID 4 owners the first week of Q3 since they are such similar devices. One of the reasons I picked my DROID 4 over the DROID RAZR was because it's newer, well it doesn't have the newer software!!!
I've had a page setup with my company website for a little while now, listing the manual steps to receive the ICS OTA official update. If you haven't yet received your scheduled OTA update and would like to get rolling with it now, check outhttp://ics.branpute.net .
Finally about 1am last night my phone started dinging at me....nice timing as always Verizon, but....there it was....would you like to update now? Duh sure....wake up this morning all nice and updated! Yeaaaaaaa I'm in So Cal if you're keeping score. ICS looks nice so far. I need to go play now.
