As most of you already know, Motorola recently confirmed that the Droid RAZR and RAZR MAXX Ice Cream Sandwich update will hit the waves by the end of Q2. After they’ve teased us with announcements that the ICS update is “coming soon“, the fact that we were able to see an actual timeframe on their website was like a breath of fresh air.
The good news didn’t stop here and, not long after that, a rumor reached our ears suggesting that once Android 4 hits the waves it could also bring global roaming capabilities on the RAZR & RAZR MAXX.
Now, after a long period of time waiting for Motorola and Verizon to deliver the update we might have an exact roll-out date for you. Tune in after the break and learn what’s what.
Motorola Droid RAZR (MAXX?) Ice Cream Sandwich Roll-Out
According to Eric Mack from Cnet, the highly anticipated ICS update could hit the waves quite soon. Isn’t that something?! This time however, there’s more than a vague timeslot and we might have the exact roll-out date. Allegedly, Verizon is planning on launching the update OTA for the Motorola Droid RAZR starting June 12 and the only reason why they were not able to roll-out the update earlier is because they had to update the servers delivering the update.
Since there’s virtually no difference between the RAZR and RAZR MAXX in terms of software and since both handsets received identical updates on the same day before, we can safely assume that the RAZR MAXX might also receive Android 4 on June 12, if the purported release date turns out to be official.
We do hope that the long-awaited update will finally hit the waves within a week, as the rumors suggest, because this was indeed a long and arduous journey for Droid RAZR owners. And before I forget, in case you wish to see some of the features expected from the upcoming update, feel free to check out one of our previous articles where you’ll find a handful of video previews depicting the Droid RAZR running on the upcoming ICS build.
We’ll keep you up to date with future developments so stay tuned!
Thanks Cnet for the heads-up regarding the Motorola Droid RAZR Ice Cream Sandwich update.
