After months of waiting and several weeks of missed would-be launches, the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich updates for the Motorola Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX should be coming to all users by the end of June 29.
Gottabemobile.com cites a “Senior Verizon Tech” as saying that Ice Cream Sandwich hit a few users on June 26, apparently as part of the carrier’s final soak test to determine if there are any show-stopping bugs in the new software package. The website’s source also claims that the update should reach all owners of the Droid RAZR and RAZR MAXX by the end of June 29.
However, the carrier so far hasn’t confirmed this date.
The most recent bit of disappointment for Droid owners was Verizon’s announcement that the Android 4.0 update would start reaching users by June 22. However, if the recent rumor is anything to go by, Motorola could be on track to hit its Q2 target for the software package’s wider roll-out.
Reactions from users show that, at least as of late June 28, only a handful of users have gotten their Ice Cream Sandwich updates. Hopefully, this situation will change today.
The Droid RAZR and RAZR MAXX’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update includes the new operating system’s stock performance improvements and bug fixes, while piling on a set of Motorola-specific user interface changes, including a customized home screen.
Once the update gets widely released, the RAZR MAXX will become a massively attractive device, considering its long battery life and top-shelf specifications.
