Device manufacturers and network carriers have received a lot of flak for the slow rollout of the Android 4.0 update. For an OS that was announced almost a year back, it is quite sad to see that only 10% of the Android devices worldwide currently sport ICS. Even though the question of “When will I get Jellybean?” is on everyone’s mind, OEMs are slowly catching up with an OS rollout that should have happened a lot faster. It’s not like the technology infrastructure doesn’t exist to do such things; we’re talking about the mobile network of smartphones here!

After a rollercoaster ride made of various Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade rumors for the Motorola Droid RAZR and RAZR Maxx, we can finally confirm that the two Android handsets will get Android 4.0.4 in the following days.
Verizon has posted software upgrade instructions for the handsets on its website, and you should prepare your RAZR version for the upcoming over-the-air (OTA) download. The carrier details two ways of getting the OTA upgrade: OTA User Initiated and OTA Server Initiated.OTA User InitiatedFrom the Home screen, tap the Menu Key > tap Settings > About phone > System updates > Download. Once the download has [...]
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 [...]
Motorola has always been more of a US-centric company than an international one, but now that Google has bought them, I’m sure they will try to become as much of a global company as possible. In fact, Google itself will probably try to get their Play Store, where they want to sell many Nexus devices in the future, as global as possible, so they can ship the devices to anyone in the world (or just wishful thinking?).
Motorola has relaunched the RAZR brand last year, with the slim, kevlar-backed Droid RAZR, and then a few months later they stirred up quite a bit of buzz around the RAZR MAXX, with its 3300 mAh battery (now the best selling device at Verizon). The [...]
Indian Android lovers have one more reason to be happy, as Motorola is launching its hottest current smartphone, the RAZR Maxx, in the Indian market very soon.
Infibeam will be the first online store to sell the handset at a price tag of INR 31,999. According to the online retailer, the Kevlar-clad device will be released for shipping from June 24 onward.
The dual-core 1.2 Ghz processor and the 1GB RAM make the Motorola RAZR Maxx the ideal device for multi-taskers and road warriors. Currently coming with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), the device is upgradeable to Android 4.0.3 ICS (Ice Cream Sandwich). With an internal storage capacity of 16 GB and a 16 GB microSD [...]
According to Anil Doradla, a financial analyst with global investment banking and asset management firm William Blair, the Apple iPhone has stopped being the best selling smartphone at Verizon for the current quarter. This marks a premiere since the iPhone was first released at Verizon, as well as since the first iPhone reached AT&T back on June 29, 2007.
Up until now, after each quarter, the Apple iPhone was declared the best selling smartphone at every single North American carrier it landed on. Continuing among these lines, it should be mentioned that despite the slightly smaller success of the iPhone 4S at Verizon, Apple maintained its top position with AT&T and [...]

Choosing a phone from Verizon for the June Buyer’s Guide was difficult. All Big Red’s top of the line phones date back from the end of 2011. That’s a stark contrast with the other carriers, who have new flagship phones on the shelf right now. Although the phones from late last year are no slouchers [...]
