Own a Motorola handset? Here is some bad news for you! Motorola has updated its Ice Cream Sandwich update timeline to reflect the delay of Android 4.0 update progress for its handsets. The Motorola Droid RAZR, RAZR MAXX and the Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi + 4G devices will taste Ice Cream Sandwich sometime in the next couple of months i.e. before Q2 of 2012 ends. A whopping 6 months after Google pushed Ice Cream Sandwich to AOSP.
For all other handsets, like the Atrix 2, Droid 4, Atrix 4G, the Droid Bionic and the Xyboard tablets, the Ice Cream Sandwich update will land sometime in Q3. Motorola is the only company, apart from LG, that has not updated any of its devices to Ice Cream Sandwich, except for the Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi only edition. The company has also confirmed that the Droid X2, which was launched less than a year ago, will not get the Ice Cream Sandwich update.
With Google I/O a month away, I am sure by the time Motorola will update the RAZR to Ice Cream Sandwich, Google would have announced a new version of Android. As if the locked bootloader on their phones were not enough, the slow update process of the company’s handset is another icing on the cake to never buy a Motorola branded Android handset.
