Following a disappointing weekend for Motorola customers, the company has initiated a soak test for last year’s Atrix 2. Initially believed to be a minor Gingerbread update, the new firmware is actually Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Interestingly enough, Motorola’s official software update landing page still lists the handset as “further plans coming soon.”
Participants of Motorola’s feedback program have begun receiving invitations to take part in a preliminary test of the smartphone’s new software. The message reads:
Thanks for signing up for the Atrix 2 software test. Our apologies for the delay in starting this test! The software will begin to be pushed out later this afternoon; however, it may take several hours for all targeted devices to receive the update.
We’re eager to hear your feedback. Please share your experience on the private community provided, and via the survey I will send out after you’ve had some time to work with the software.
Regardless, it’s great to see Motorola actually make an effort to rectify its mistakes. Now let’s just hope other devices (like the Atrix 4G) get some update love.
