Motorola Teases Droid RAZR Ice Cream Sandwich Update

Motorola isn’t slated to roll out the Droid RAZR Ice Cream Sandwich update by the end of June. However, that hasn’t stopped it from teasing Android 4.0 for its device.

Over the weekend Motorola Japan, courtesy of Droid-Life, posted a video showing off how Ice Cream Sandwich, Google’s latest mobile operating system, will look on the Droid RAZR.

The company also posted a second video that showcases the new Webtop 3.0 user interface that will be coming along with the software.

This is the first time we’ve seen the official update in action though leaked versions of the software have been making the rounds for quite some time.


Android 4.0 Introduction

Until we’re able to spend sometime with the update, we’ll reserve judgement on how MotoBlur and Android 4.0 interact with each other but from the videos, it looks like Motorola has tried pretty hard to create a seamless experience.

Webtop 3.0 UI

The software doesn’t seem to be too inundated with Motorola’s UI which means there should be quite a bit of Ice Cream Sandwich to enjoy.

There are also videos, which can be seen below, that show off everything from the Face Unlock to taking and sharing screenshots with the Droid RAZR.

Motorola has announced that it will be bringing Ice Cream Sandwich to the Droid RAZR and its sibling, the Droid RAZR MAXX, sometime in Q2.

That means that the company has just over a month to make good on its promise as Q2 ends at the end of June.


And while we hope that Motorola provides a specific release date soon, we have a feeling that it will take the extra time to ensure that the experience on the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX are as close to flawless as they can be.
