I saw this new blog by Motorola on the company's Twitter feed today and I wanted to share some really interesting information found within the blog. Here's a link:Motorola Update on Ice Cream Sandwich | The Official Motorola Blog - Motorola Mobility, Inc. USA
If you read the first blog post, Motorola is actually quite transparent and even articulate in their description of the Android upgrade process for devices.
The good news: The RAZR is getting ICS.
The bad news: The blog post clearly shows it will take 6 months to ship ICS to the RAZR. Here's why:
1 month (mid-January): "We are currently assessing this source code, and over the next month we will be determining which devices will get the upgrade and when"
3-5 months (mid-April at the earliest to mid-June at the "supposed" latest, delays not included): "There may be a two-month preparation cycle to enter a carrier lab cycle of one to three months."
The bold sections are direct quotes from the Motorola ICS blog. I mean, it's hard to argue with that.
Kinda disappointing, to say the least...
