Motorola Canada says the RAZR will officially taste Ice Cream Sandwich “early September”

Rogers came forward with a OS device upgrade schedule yesterday. This was certainly a great step forward and they made it perfectly clear that the upgrade dates are “tentative” and could change at any moment. Unfortunately, the schedule was immediately  outdated. At the time Rogers declared the Sony Xperia arc and the arc S would be upgraded to Android OS 4.0 sometime “Early September,” but was pleasantly pushed out to both devices yesterday. Now for RAZR owners who have been patiently waiting for Ice Cream Sandwich to hit their device, Rogers estimated that it would land “Late August.” However, according to a Facebook post by Motorola Canada, the upgrade to ICS will in fact be dropping “early September.”

“We wanted to share with you that the RAZR ICS upgrade will rollout in early September. We’ll have more details about the upgrade to share with you soon, so stay tuned!”

Looks like a few more weeks to go…

    What does early September mean? 5, 10th 15th?? But atleast it is just around the corner. The wait is killing me though. I hope battery life will be better, lately my battery dies in 8 hours.

    Ice Cream Sandwich? Jelly Bean is the new OS, never mind ICS!!

    o thats nice, ill be enjoying my jelly beans on my galaxy nexus and nexus 7 🙂

  • Rockin Rog

    Some are patient to do Jelly Bean because some don’t mind gingerbread still. Obviously ICS will be a bonus just the same so I’m happy.

    That was a long six weeks…

    JB means nothing after you go from GB to ICS. I can’t wait for a full firware file, so I could get rid of this stupid Brazilian 4.0.4 I got. Rogers ROMs are the most stable and polished ones amongst other retail and branded ROMs, so I don’t mind them coming out late.

    I have the RAZR and I’m really disappointed that it takes so long for Motorola’s flagship device to get ICS. Last Motorola phone I’m getting thats for sure.

    Considering it was promised to be delivered shortly after I bought my phone. (December of last year) This is very disappointing. Your flagship phone should be updated with-in 3 months maximum there is no excuse for this crap from Motorola and none really for Rogers either on this one both take way to long to get these things done. I don’t care if you release it in beta format earlier and are forced to do patches as long as you release it and give me the option of using it even if buggy.
