Droid Razr Ice Cream Sandwich Upgrade Coming in Second Quarter 2012

Motorola has finally revealed a more specific timeframe for when it will begin rolling out its Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade for its wildly popular Droid Razr and Droid Razr Maxx smartphones.

The update is set to hit both devices before the end of the second quarter of 2012, according to Motorola.

The company also announced when it would roll out updates for some of its other tablets and smartphones including the Droid Xyboard 8.2, 10.1, the XOOM WiFi + 3G MZ600, the Atrix 2, the Atrix 4G MB860, Droid 4, Droid Bionic and the Motorola XOOM Family Edition.

The Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Droid Xyboard models will roll out in the early part of the third quarter of 2012.

The update for the XOOM WiFi and 3G MZ600 model will begin rolling out in the second quarter.

Both the Atrix 2 and the Atrix 4G will get Ice Cream Sandwich in the third quarter of 2012. The Droid 4 will receive it around that same time along with the Droid Bionic.

ICS will come to the XOOM family edition in the third quarter as well.

These dates are subject to change due to Google's purchase of Motorola Mobility. However, many fans will be happy to see that the company has finally revealed the dates for the software upgrade since many Android device owners have been waiting a long time for Android 4.0.

The Motorola Droid Razr launched at the end of 2011 and was ranked as the best smartphone of year by CNET who called it "outstanding."

The Razr is also the thinnest smartphone on the market at this time.

The Razr Maxx is a follow up to the Razr that features a slightly thicker frame made to accommodate its 3300mAH battery.
