Report: Motorola DROID RAZR to get Android 4.0.4 update on June 12th

Report: Motorola DROID RAZR to get Android 4.0.4 update on June 12th
Waiting for your Motorola DROID RAZR to receive its Android 4.0 update? According to CNET, you don't have that long to wait. A source inside Big Red told the site that the Ice Cream Sandwich build of Android will go flying through the airwaves, heading toward the Motorola DROID RAZR on or around June 12th (is it just us or is this month shaping up to be full of exciting events).There is no word on whether or not the update will include the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX.

Last month, Motorola released an updated timetable that showed a Q2 update for the Motorola DROID RAZR and a June 12th update would allow the Google subsidiary to keep it's word. Still, CNET's source said that the DROID RAZR might have been tasting Ice Cream Sandwich last month if not for a delay caused by a necessary change in the servers that send out the update from Android 4.0.3 to Android 4.0.4.

I actually think this rumor is true. Motorola said the update would be out in Q2 and there are only 3.5 weeks left in the quarter.

Nice. Only two months late. It's roughly on the same timetable as when the Atrix got Gingerbread last year.

Doesn't excuse Moto for taking so long.

That makes two of us. I am wondering what the RAZR HD's specs will look like, since HTC and Sammy have raised the bar going into the Fall shopping season.

going by any rumor that has come out of the mill for this thing it looks to be pretty solid. definitely something i wouldn't be afraid to put next to someone's SIII. o:

Doesn't matter if they have better hardware, on VZW they still have a locked bootloader. Even though there is a work around, it has severely crippled the community support, which is a deal breaker for me.

it really doesn't matter, i mean have you seen ICS for Motorola? stock should serve most speed demons and common users quite well.

Another reason to not get a Moto phone. Look at how long it took to get ICS.

Simple answer for you then... Don't buy one. Thanks for playing!

21. Mxyzptlk unregistered

I wasn't playing. I rather invest my money on quality devices. Everything Moto makes tends to stop working like it should after about six months to a year.

Your saying this to a guy who still owns the OG Droid, the Droid X, and now the very happy owner of the Droid Razr. :) You theory doesn't whole water my friend. Their feature phones... Okay, they do suck! But their Droids kick ass!

My rezound takes longer I guess. Although I am running a leaked RUU with sense 4.0 ported, I just want to see the official ICS.

This actually isn't very long considering when you look at the competition in ICS updates. The only devices in the US with an official ICS update right now are a few HTC devices and the Nexus'. So, in the timeline, the updates went like this; Google updates the Nexus S (and they were even late) HTC updates the Vivid, Amaze, Sensation, and releases 3 devices with ICS Motorola is releasing ICS to the Razr in a few days, and more soon to come after that. Samsung hasn't released any ICS yet, and probably won't until mid June/early July. Right now, HTC and Motorola are ahead of everyone else. And even if Motorola was the last to roll out updates, so what? We don't need your commentary on every Motorola article saying how they don't update their devices. If you don't like it, here's a concept, don't get a Moto device. Stop complaining. If updates are that important to you, get a Nexus and quit with your incessant attempts at trolling Moto. They make good products, and even if they are a little slow with updates, their devices still run seamlessly on the version of Android they are on. The Razr is an amazing phone, whether running GB or ICS.

Is it possible that this update will NOT include the Maxx?

20. mas11

No it definitely will come to the MAXX. That's because the RAZR MAXX is essentially the RAZR with a giant battery. The software and every other piece of hardware inside the phone is exactly the same.

What are the real stand out 'differences, pros/cons' between the old and new update??

Just get the Axiom version of 4.0.4 ICS and then wait for a dev to custom a version if the official version of 4.0.4 ...less Verizon crap the better and it will probably run faster, too. Or, you could use TiBu and then add the tweaks in manually. I have been using Axiom since February...runs very well.

If this update is still happening today, does anyone know what time it becomes available?
