Motorola introduces "new look" ICS RAZR and RAZR MAXX in official video
posted by Scott H. / Jun 22, 2012, 12:32 PM
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.

This isn't new, this is just new for the RAZR. Had this for 7 months on my GNexus. And it's about to get better with Jelly Bean very soon. Cheers to not having to wait FOREVER for updates.

hold down the power + vol down keys and it'll capture your screen.

I'm seeing some positive feedback about MotorBlur, which is is good thing. Motorola did step up their game since Gingerbread and this just might be well worth the wait. Look forward to a side-by-side comparison of all the mfg OEM builds running ICS (and the stock build too).

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.

yay Motorola.. 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

I wish the update were actually available. No joy for me as yet.

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.

Official word per conversation with VZW tech support rep is that "ICS Commercial Availability is 6/23...." Guess the web site folks jumped the gun on the software distribution people. Hopefully tomorrow brings the OTA edition of ICS.
