    Yesterday Shadez posted a thread on the possibility of ATT getting a RAZR device. Well after some "investigating", I didnt find much but I did find this article on Motorola's blog. It is an update log of what phones are on what Android OS. Before they list the devices and what OS they are currently on, there is a note from them about the ICS update

    Notice how there is not 1 but 2 RAZR's on there. There is the DROID RAZR and then the MOTOROLA RAZR. Now this may not mean anything at all. It can simply be a mistake on Motorola's behalf. But I thought it was a little weird having them list the RAZR twice with different brandings before them.

    I think its accurate. I wouldn't give the Droid name to AT&T. Keep that with Verizon.

    For what it's worth. I'm positive Moto confirmed the existence of an overseas razr + it being multi carrier in the USA.

    Verizon just gets it first. Kind if like how Cingular had the first razr for a bit.

    Also note the omission of any other phone, such as the Droid 3. I can understand if the X/X2 don't get it, but the Droid 3 is only 2 months older than the Bionic and has almost the exact same specs.

    True, but Motorola also said they would add more devices to the list. The listed devices aren't the only ones getting it, they are just the "for sure" ones. They mentioned they would add more devices as soon as ICS is release by Google.

    Motorola RAZR is the international RAZR. Droid RAZR is the US model.

    Well Google did say any phone that can run GB will receive ICS so I wouldn't be to worried.

    Yep, this is what Motorola said during the RAZR event last week. The Droid branding is a US thing. Similarly, the Droid 1, 2, and 3 are the Milestone 1, 2, and 3 overseas.

    There may actually be 3 RAZR's .. 2 in the US, 1 overseas. One of the 2 US versions will be a global version. From hint's I've been receiving.

    The Moto RAZR will no doubt be a pentaband GSM phone so we can expect that it will be available for AT&T and T-Mobile. The branding was announced previously, so yes, two models (SKUs), one GSM, one CDMA/LTE.
