Motorola Droid 4 Ice Cream Sandwich Update Roll Out Imminent?
Motorola has promised a Q3 roll out window for the the Motorola Droid 4 Ice Cream Sandwich update roll out and looks like Motorola and Verizon may be sticking to that plan.
Originally, Motorola said that the Droid 4 ICS roll out would take place sometime in Q3. That means that is slated the update for some point during the months of July, August and September.
And now, it appears that the update is on the verge of rolling out as a soak test for an unnamed update is set to begin according to Droid-Life and it looks like the update may be the Droid 4 Ice Cream Sandwich roll out.
There is no confirmation yet but signs, which include the soak test and the fact that a Motorola forums manager visited a Droid 4 ICS waiting room reminding owners to sign up to be a part of the soak test.
So, as of right now, it looks like a soak test could be for the Ice Cream Sandwich update which means that a roll out could take place in the next couple of days if the software is deemed worthy of release.
If bugs are found, then the software could be delayed a bit while Motorola gets things sorted out. If all goes well though, and it likely will, owners of the Droid 4 should see the update sometime this week.
The Droid 4 ICS update will bring all of the goodness of Android 4.0 but it likely will also bring a number of bug fixes and enhancements as well which should help to better the experience on the Droid 4.
So, it looks like something might be taking place soon and we’ll definitely keep an eye out for an official roll out.

Then we would only be ONE version behind rather than TWO … on our 6 month old devices! Ugh. Seriously, though, after using Jelly Bean on the Nexus 7 THAT is what I really want … but I will certainly be happy to at least get ICS.

Finally. I’ve been googling every day just to see this. I hope jb will come soon after. Its all about the money with these releases. To get us to buy new phones.lol

Heh, even most of the Nexus devices don’t have JB yet, so if you think JB is coming for your device any time in the next few months you’re fooling yourself.

I do hope D4 gets the ICS experience.
I mean…QWERTY Flagship….on GB? That’s not very professional. And anyone with a D4, lacking the ICS update, would be pissed and certainly wouldn’t recommend it , or any moto phone, due to fragmentation.
but i’m positive ICS ‘ll get here, everyone’ll be happy. I just hope it fixes some LTE issues

What a horribly redundant article. How many times and ways can. You say “it’s on the verge”?
