Motorola readies its RAZR Ice Cream Sandwich update (video)

Motorola has been promising an Ice Cream Sandwich update for the RAZR since the day it was announced. In fact, it was announced only hours before the Galaxy Nexus, so its upgrade to ICS has been a very long time coming.

Now the company is readying the Verizon version of the upgrade, and has posted a flashy video to show off some of the new features. Many of them are the same as stock Android — Face Unlock, a new browser, data usage limits — but the team has updated SmartActions and WebTop, two features that differentiate Motorola from the rest of the pack.

Now, the question is when the Rogers Motorola RAZR will receive the update. We heard it would be here before the end of Q2, so time is running out. Considering the update is rolling out to Verizon users starting today, we’d venture to say the Rogers version isn’t too far behind.

Check after the break for the full 2-minute demo.

    Good job, Motorola, updating your phone to the latest OS version right before its successor, 4.1 Jellybean, is announced.

    • RIM?

      Hey wait just one gawddamn second here, I thought the RAZR was running BB10?

      I have a RAZR, I like it a lot.

      My buddy Alec has one of these too. He is an entrepreneur, adventurer, and occasional geek.

    i cant help but think google is starting to alienate its customers by releasing future OS upgrades when majority of its users are growing very impatient waiting for ICS.

    • Moto

      Its not Google that took its time its all the providers and phone companies screwing around with it before its out.

  • dumas

    does ics run bb10?

  • Rob

    I love my RAZR, quailty phone that feels solid. I trust Rogers less than Motorola (only 6 months late) with regards to rolling out updates.
