Motorola to Share Droid RAZR MAXX Android 4.0 Details Soon

Today is April 4th, the date that a leaked Best Buy document said would be the day that the Motorola Droid RAZR and Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX would be getting Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Owners of both devices have yet to see any new software roll out but Motorola, for its part, says that it will be sharing details about the software or the Droid RAZR MAXX sometime in the near future.

Droid-Life has revealed a Twitter conversation that took place today between Motorola Mobility’s Twitter account and an owner of the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX who asked about the availability of the device’s Android 4.0 update.

Motorola says that while it does not have a release date to announce, it will be sharing details about the release date “soon.”

Motorola to Share Droid RAZR MAXX Android 4.0 Details Soon

Of course, this is an Android manufacturer that we’re talking about here so we have no idea if soon actually means soon if it means weeks from now soon.

We hope that it’s the former and not the latter.

As for the original Droid RAZR, we haven’t seen Motorola’s Twitter fire off any responses about it yet.

In any event, it looks like we’re getting closer to seeing Android 4.0 roll out to a Motorola device.

Motorola has promised Android 4.0 updates for a number of its Droid devices including:

  • DROID BIONIC
  • DROID RAZR
  • DROID RAZR MAXX
  • DROID 4 DROID
  • DROID XYBOARD 8.2
  • DROID XYBOARD 10.1
  • DROID Incredible 2 by HTC

It hasn’t announced any specific release dates for any of them however.

As for the other device that appeared in the Best Buy document, the HTC Rezound, it’s unclear if the April 6th roll out date that leaked out will still be taking place.

    Looks like April fools is running late this year. As for Motorola, keep 4.0. I bought a phone over 4 months ago with the hopes of it being upgraded and so far nothing. ICS at this point isn’t enough to keep me loyal when I buy the next one.

    blah blah blah. Whatever Motorola. Your foot dragging on this is why I won’t be buying another Motorola phone.

    I have the Maxx…should’ve bought the nexus. Motorola wastes too much time when it comes to ics 4.0

  4. Sharkie5893 says

    I have a Maxx and I’m Happy as hell with it …. Ive only bought Motorola an will keep buying them! Great things are worth waiting for

    Soon obviously means something else at Motorolla than it does to the rest of us. As of May 9th, still no information (5 weeks after Moto’s “Soon” line). Looks like I’ll be buying someone else’s phone. I mean how hard is it to give an estimated date? At this point I would say that the silence indicates they have encountered significant problems with ICS on Moto platforms and just don’t want to admit it. They hope people will keep buying, and if they stall long enough it will get far enough through the lifecycle that people will be buying the next phone and forget about the lack of ICS on this generation of Moto products.
