Motorola has just updated its large chart with its Android 4.0 upgrade plans, including specifics on what part of the upgrade process each phone is at and rough availability dates by region. Unfortunately, it looks like there's going to be quite a wait ahead, as most of the company's phones still have a long way to go before they get updated: only theXoom Family Edition, Atrix 2, Atrix 4G, Photon 4G, Xoom 2, Xoom 2 Media Edition, and the international variants of the RAZR, Xyboard 8.2 and Xyboard 10.1 have estimated release dates, and all of the updates are slated for Q3 of this year (other than the Xoom Family Edition and the RAZR, which are given a Q2 estimate).
That means that most all of the company's current lineup won't be getting the latest and greatest version of Android any time soon. The Droid RAZR, Droid RAZR Maxx, Droid 4,Droid 3, Droid Bionic, Verizon's two Xyboards, and many more are in the first stage of development — evaluation and planning. You'll notice that all of those are Verizon devices, which certainly makes us think the carrier has something to do with the delay. Motorola's chart of its current US update schedule is below, and see the source link for more information on the company's international plans.
