Motorola Updates it Android 4.0 update Schedule (Not in a Good News Way)

Motorola Updates their List on Android 4.0 Update

Motorola has updated their schedule on what phone get’s update and it seems all they have done is just delayed all the updates on most of their devices which is few compared to the devices that will not get the update their hardware can support, and we thought after Google’s requisition of Motorola, Droid’s will be among the first devices to get pure (Moto Blur free) updates.

  • Droid Razr and Droid Razr Maxx update has been shifted from early 2012 to 2nd Quarter (Q2).
  • The Motorola Xoom international Wi-Fi model and U.S. 4G model are first in line for Android 4.0 update in the Q2
  • The Motorola Droid Xyboard 8.2 and 10.1 models have been added in the list and ETA is Q3
  • Droid Bionic has also got an ETA for Q3
  • Photon 4G has been shifted from Q3 to Q4
  • The Xoom Family Edition tablet has been shifted from Q2 to Q3
  • Droid 3 and Milestone 3 the Dual Core Android phones (my personal favorite) will not get to Android 4.0 and will stay on Android 2.3. There are custom ROM that have Android 4.0 o Droid 3.0 running smoothly.
  • Droid X2 and Milestone X2 also will stay on Gingerbread and will not get to taste the Ice Cream even after being Dual Core phones.

Motorola is yet to give Android 4.0 update to any device, I don’t remember they actually giving out even Android 2.3 update to their devices on Android 2.2. Motorola is on roll in disappointing their customers. It’s ironic that they were actually leading the Android revolution with the Motorola Droid/ Milestone and Android phones are still called ‘Droids’ due to the same and now it seems like they are pushing their fans to Samsung and HTC.

If you are a Slide out QWERTY fan it’s even worse news for you as Motorola makes the best ones and the only Android phone maker to do develop such phones if they are not going to give updates to their device and just abandon them, then what’s the use.

*While some versions of the Motorola Xoom have received Ice Cream Sandwich, that tablet is a “Google experience” device like the Nexus phones and consequently has its software upgrades managed directly by Google — not Motorola.

The following products have a minimum of 1G of RAM.
