Motorola Updating Handsets to Android Ice Cream Sandwich

| December 8, 2011 | 0 Comments

Motorola, just like the rest of the major manufacturers, has plans to release Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich updates for its handsets. The company claims that in contrast to the rest of the manufacturers they need to have a four-step process before releasing the update. The actions are the following:

  • Merge and adapt the new release for different device hardware architecture(s) and carrier customizations
  • Stabilize and ‘bake’ the result to drive out bugs
  • Submit the upgrade to the carriers for certification
  • Perform a Customer pre-release

Still the manufacturer doesn’t provide any info about when the final release of the Android ICS will be rolled to the handsets. But the list of the smartphones, which will sport the new version of OS is announced. It includes the Motorola Droid RAZR, the Droid Bionic and the Xoom tablets. The official statement goes like this:

“We are planning to upgrade DROID RAZR™ by Motorola, Motorola RAZR™, Motorola XOOM™ (including Family Edition) and DROID BIONIC™ by Motorola to Ice Cream Sandwich. We will provide more precise guidance on timing after post-public push of Ice Cream Sandwich by Google, as well as any possible additions to this list of devices.”

Most likely the manufacturer will also start releasing new handsets running the Android ICS OS, but so far there are no leaks of such handsets.
