Motorola Outlines Further Ice Cream Sandwich Update Plans

Motorola has already confirmed that the Xooms, Droid Bionic, Razr, Razr Maxx and the Droid 4 will get a hefty helping of Ice Cream Sandwich this year, but the company has added a few more devices to its ICS upgrade schedule. The Photon 4G, Atrix 4G, Atrix 2, and the Electrify will all see Android 4.0 at some point during the course of 2012.

Motorola lists most of the devices for a Q3 release, with just a few getting Q2 treatment, so there’s still quite a road ahead for you Gingerbread-packing phandroids.

That is, if you even own a device slated for the update. There are quite a few Motorola handsets that will never see Ice Cream Sandwich at all.

It’s also worth noting that both the Q2 and Q3 releases are best-scenario projections. The updates must go through testing with both Motorola and the carriers before being sent out to the masses, and a single slip-up somewhere down the line could slow things up considerably.
