Motorola Updates ICS Schedule: Razr Set for Q2 Update But U.S. Device Still Under “Evaluation”

White Droid Razr on Verizon

Motorola has already told us which devices will receive the much anticipated Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update. Nine devices are already scheduled, although the phone maker hasn’t yet announced exactly when the updates would land. Motorola said Monday that the Razr — currently sold in the United States on Verizon Wireless, as well as in Europe and several other regions— will get the update during the second quarter of this year. The only problem, however, is that the Q2 update only applies to the Razr in the Asia Pacific, the Middle East, Europe, Latin America, Japan, Korea, China and Canada. This might come as a bummer to U.S. users who were expecting it a bit sooner.

The ATRIX 2, Photon 4G, Atrix 4G, Xyboard 8.2 and Xyboard 10.1 (not the Verizon-branded DROID Xyboard, mind you) are scheduled to receive Android Ice Cream Sandwich during the third quarter of this year. The XOOM Family Edition will begin during the second quarter. Other devices, such as the DROID 3, DROID 4, DROID Bionic, DROID Razr, DROID Razr Maxx, DROID X2 and others are now listed as “in evaluation and planning. Further details to follow.” Motorola has promised the update for a number of those devices, it just remains a matter of when exactly we’ll be able to update our phones. Hopefully it’s sooner rather than later, but if Motorola’s updates to Android 2.2 and Android 2.3 are any sign, we could be waiting a bit.
