There was a glimmer of hope that the Motorola Droid Razr and Razr Maxx would get their Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade on June 12, but that day came and passed without so much as a whiff of an ice cream serving. It looks like that “source within Verizon” that CNET cited last week has proven to be less than accurate. So when is the update coming for the two phones?
Responding to a question asked on the company’s Twitter account about the release schedule of ICS for Droid Razr, they replied that there’s no date set yet for the upgrade. This leaves owners of the phone to hang on to what Motorola has written on its ICS roadmap, which states that the “ICS upgrade roll out begins in Q2 2012.”
With about two weeks left in the quarter, there’s still a possibility that Verizon will surprise us all and deliver the goods in time. Being that the Droid Razr Maxx is Verizon’s top selling phone this quarter, even surpassing the iPhone for the very first time, we’re sure the carrier would want to make a good impression on their Droid-loving customers – especially with Motorola Droid Razr HD hitting the market soon.
But for now, it’s back to square one on the ICS upgrade front for the Droid Razr and Razr Maxx. Feel free to voice your hope and/or frustration in the comments below. We’ll keep you posted.
