Motorola says ICS coming in Q2 for Motorola DROID RAZR and Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX
Motorola has released an updated timetable of its Android 4.0 updates and it looks as though things will be starting sometime this quarter with the Motorola DROID RAZR and the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX. Also this quarter, Motorola will be updating the Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi + 3G MZ600 tablet. Early Q3 updates are penciled in for the Motorola XYBOARD 8.2 and the Motorola XYBOARD 10.1 along with the Motorola DROID BIONIC handset. Later in the third quarter, the Android 4.0 update will be delivered to the Motorola DROID 4, the Motorola ATRIX 4G MB 860 and the Motorola ATRIX 2.

A pair of Verizon sold handsets, the Motorola DROID 3 and the Motorola DROID X2 have apparently been eliminated from any chance of receiving the Ice Cream Sandwich update. While some have theorized that the 512MB of RAM on each phone is what held them back from receiving Android 4.0, we have seen other manufacturers announce that the update is coming to other phones with the same amount of RAM on board.

This is why I'm leaving Android. I'm tired of always waiting for updates that might not ever come.

you want to have updates, you buy a Nexus. You may have to avoid Verizon

yes AVOID Verizon. Nexus or not, VERIZON is the slowest to update their phones. Galaxy Nexus Verizon user here, still on 4.0.2. the same version it ran when it first came out 6 months ago. GSM and Sprint both have been updated Verizon's has NOT.

Well yeah, but even on 2.3 android's still better than WP7 and iOS. Though honestly, I'm kinda itching to give WP7 a whirl.

I'm leaning toward WP7 myself but now I'm worried that anything I buy this summer won't upgrade to WP8

14. RORYREVOLUTION

Posts: 3131; Member since: Jan 12, 2010

I would at least wait for WP8 if you want to switch. I got a bad feeling most of the current line up devices won't be upgraded.

Android is the king my friend, after trying Microsoft products on my laptop and going through the "blue death screen" and os getting corrupted suddenly for no clear reasons, I'm a little bit afraid to use their phones. That's just a personal opinion I wanted to share. Have a nice day.

I've got a few friends rocking wp7, Its a pretty slick OS. Easy to use once you get the hand of it and over all a pretty smooth experience. I dont think its for people who are serious about mobile tech but I dont think its something that should eb avoided at all costs.

I would love to see how battery life performs on the Maxx after the ICS update. Hopefully there's a huge improvement to the already awesome battery life.

How the hell the RAZRS gets ICS first when the ATRIX & BIONIC came out a year before that? Doesn't makes since to me really.

They're both flag ship phones in Moto's line up.

it even has 1 gb rom ram rules out the 512mb of ram theory then or maybe it's sprint

So why is the DROID RAZR getting ICS before the DROID 4?! The DROID 4 is newer!! Plus it's pretty much the RAZR with a physical keyboard! I'm sorry but this is a good way to P.O. DROID 4 owners! Seriously Motorola?!

It's all about priority. Droid 4 is basically a "mid range" device while the RAZR/MAXX are well, at least for Verizon "high end".

They have the same processor and RAM. The only superior hardware on the RAZR is the 4.3” AMOLED screen.

mas is right. i still think about getting a Droid 4 for myself.

I'm not talking about just specs Mas. I am talking about what they feel is their priority devices. The RAZR/MAXX is pretty much the most popular device on Verizon other than the Galaxy Nexus.

I understand your point, but look at what 3 devices Verizon is advertising in the new DROID DOES commercials. I believe Verizon prefers the RAZRs, but I don't think Verizon believes that the DROID 4 is a lower quality device. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XW0wb039vng

because there's two versions of the Droid Razr and it's more popular.

You know thats all fine and dandy but my thing is why is motorola catering to verizon and nobody else? I even contacted Motorola and was told to talk to my carrier. Didn't know where to comment about it but surprised no one else is saying anything about it either.
