Well we’ve got some great news to kick off your weekend, that is if you are an owner of a DROID RAZR, RAZR MAXX, or the HTC Rezound. According to a leaked screenshot from Best Buy, it looks like the DROID RAZR and RAZR MAXX will start receiving Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich next Wednesday, April 4. The HTC Rezound is scheduled for 2 days later, on April 6.
If you remember the latest Motorola report on the status of ICS showed “still under evaluation” for the RAZR and RAZR MAXX. That of course made everyone angry, but I’ve talked to Motorola reps and they told me to expect the ICS update in the 2nd quarter. Well guess what? The 2nd quarter begins this Sunday, April 1. Now usually when someone gives an estimate like this, it’s rarely at the beginning of the quarter, but lets face it, Motorola has been pretty good with updating DROID devices. Since the RAZR and RAZR MAXX are flagship devices, I would be surprised if this information isn’t true. Just to make things a little more interesting, soak test invites just went out for the RAZR and RAZR MAXX so things are adding up.The only issue is if this update will be be bug free, which wasn’t the case with the Gingerbread updates they deployed last summer starting with the DROID X. Lets hope this goes a lot smoother.
As to the Rezound, things have been quiet, but we did see the AT&T Vivid get the official update, so it won’t be a shock if the Rezound also follows suit next week with a little ice cream lovin.
We will let you know more as soon as we hear it.
