Considering that Motorola is now owned by Google, the company has been somehow surprisingly AWOL in the Android device wars. With the HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S3 already available, we are still waiting for any official word on Motorola’s next flagship device. Hopefully, Motorola won’t get stuck in a chronic case of “too little, too late” and lose sight of the race leaders. The same goes for the ICS update race.
Motorola announced a Q2 Android 4.0 rollout for the Razr and Razr MAXX, and with only nine days to go, it looks like the company is trying its best to meet the deadline. DroidLife reports that soak test invitations are being sent out by the company to members of their feedback network. Granted, the invite talks about a “new software release,” but at this point, any software update that is not Ice Cream Sandwich will be sorely disappointing. Another tip received by DroidLife suggests that the soak test will begin tomorrow, June 22, with a full rollout expected to begin on June 27.
Unfortunately, there’s no good news for Motorola Razr owners in Australia. Motorola Australia earlier today, stated on their Facebook page that they have faced some delays in the rollout of the ICS update and will not be able to meet the Q2 deadline. Obviously, the news was received with varying degrees of anger and disappointment by Australian consumers yearning for a piece of Ice Cream Sandwich .
What are your thoughts? How excited are you about FINALLY getting the ICS update (for US consumers)? How disappointed are you about STILL NOT getting the ICS update (for Australian consumers)? Let us know in the comments section below.
