Second, Google has just recently bought Motorola Mobility, which, in many people’s eyes, makes Motorola Android devices likely to be first in line, or at least among those first in line, for Android updates.
That second reason also seems to open the possibility of the upcoming Motorola DROID RAZR (Motorola DROID HD, Motorola Spyder) as another likely candidate for an Ice Cream Sandwich update. That is, if ICS is not yet on the device when the DROID RAZR hits store shelves.
Other Android smartphones that are also likely to get ICS updates include the LG Revolution 2, and probably even the Samsung Galaxy S II. Though, owners of these devices will probably wait a bit before they can taste Ice Cream Sandwich on their handsets.
ASUS’s Eee Pad Transformers–both 1 and 2–may also receive ICS. Samsung’s tablets, too, especially the Galaxy Tab 10.1 has been more or less “confirmed” to get ICS updates in the future. As a matter of fact, the chances of the more recent Android tablets’ getting ICS updates is rather high.
Sony’s and Lenovo’s tablets, however, may get ICS somewhat late, since several of these devices have custom features and user interfaces.
Is your Android device on the list? If not, we’ll find out soon enough whether Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is heading your way.
