    Update 3: We replaced the pic from earlier with a Motorola video of ICS in action on the RAZR.

    According to released support docs and the webpage at the Motorola source link below, Android 4.0/Ice Cream Sandwich will begin rolling out today (June 22nd) to the Droid RAZR and RAZR MAXX! Besides the obvious benefits of Ice Cream Sandwich, there are some additional features that Moto is adding to this update: a four-way lockscreen shortcut, refreshed notifications, global roaming, a smart actions app update and more.

    Sound off in the thread when you get yours! dancedroiddancedroiddancedroid

    Update: Verizon's own news page now confirms that the rollout will start on June 22nd!

    Thanks for the tip, nikecar!

    Update 2: Thanks to another tipster, we have some more info to share regarding this update. One other cool and interesting new feature that this update brings besides ICS is that it will make your RAZR or RAZR MAXX a Global device! You can see more details here: UPDATE: Android 4.0 ICS News for DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX Owners | The Official Motorola Blog - Motorola Mobility, Inc. USA.

    Hmmmm no soak test first. If there was, those that were in it managed to keep it a secret this time. LOL

    Maybe Motorola saw the amount of people talking about it on open forums and kept it in house?

    Very good possibility. We know from all previous soak tests that there are always gonna be those that have to tell the world and give proof. Like they are in that need of attention that they wanna try to lay claim to being the first to leak out something like that.

    You guys are within days of what I feels is the best rendition of ics. Motorola really put a lot of effort into it and you will see a totally different blur. We are getting to where blur is no longer a curse word.

    No ICS in central PA. No soak test either that I know of. That is unusual for Moto to not soak test a major upgrade...not update. But who knows...with all the leaks and the number of people running them, plus the confusion Moto had trying to get the invite out successfully, maybe they decided to go without a soak test.
