    Default RAZR ICS Question?

    Wasn't the RAZR the advertised as the first phone upgradeable to Ice Cream Sandwich?

    If so then why does it seem it will be the last one to get it. Did they not start "evaluating and planning" it as soon as they made the phone. Am I wrong?

    Really another ICS thread? The Nexus was the phone advertised to have ICS which it was shipped was and was quite frankly crappy. You making this thread and complaining is not going to make it come out any faster. People needs to understand and be patient with update releases. You don't want them to just throw an untested update put there and have alot of problems. If you have to have it, there is a leaked version so go root and flash.

    I don't think its ever been stated that the RAZR would be the first phone upgradable to ICS.

    We should be a little more polite to people who may not have been following the other posts and might not know whats going on especially when people post that ICS was to be released yesterday. It confuses people when people post about releases and they dont happen.:

    Well I knew good and well it wasn't happening yesterday. Just asking if I was right that it was the first phone upgradeable to ICS. You would just think the first phone upgradeable would be the first to get it as an OTA. That's why many people would buy it.

    I don't mean that "would" be. I'm saying first GB phone advertised as being upgradeable to ICS.

    And as for the two gents I've bothered by posting a repeat post. I believe I put in the subject what it was regarding. So why'd you click on it? Since you're so busy trolling the message boards that you don't have time to be slowed down by a repeat post.

    Before released Verizon or Motorolla was saying it would get ICS about 6 weeks after launch. They either lied or made very poor error in judging how long it would take.

    But what I was trying to say not all people know how to work the forums and no matter what we should be polite and try to help. I have posted a couple of questions on how to do something and they are way down on list now with no reply's or help.

    Motorola to Share Droid RAZR MAXX Android 4.0 Details Soon
    Posted: 04 Apr 2012 01:43 PM PDT
    Motorola to Share Droid RAZR MAXX Android 4.0 Details Soon is a post by Adam Mills from Gotta Be Mobile.
    Today is April 4th, the date that a leaked Best Buy document said would be the day that the Motorola Droid RAZR and Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX would be getting Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Owners of both devices have yet to see any new software roll out but Motorola, for its part, says that it will be sharing details about the software or the Droid RAZR MAXX sometime in the near future.
    Droid-Life has revealed a Twitter conversation that took place today between Motorola Mobility’s Twitter account and an owner of the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX who asked about the availability of the device’s Android 4.0 update.
    Motorola says that while it does not have a release date to announce, it will be sharing details about the release date “soon.”

    Of course, this is an Android manufacturer that we’re talking about here so we have no idea if soon actually means soon if it means weeks from now soon.
    We hope that it’s the former and not the latter.
    As for the original Droid RAZR, we haven’t seen Motorola’s Twitter fire off any responses about it yet.
    In any event, it looks like we’re getting closer to seeing Android 4.0 roll out to a Motorola device.
    Motorola has promised Android 4.0 updates for a number of its Droid devices including:
    DROID BIONIC
    DROID RAZR
    DROID RAZR MAXX
    DROID 4 DROID
    DROID XYBOARD 8.2
    DROID XYBOARD 10.1
    DROID Incredible 2 by HTC

    The Rumor that ICS was coming out came from a post by BestBuy. We all know this is incorrect by now. We also know that Verizon has ICS for the Razr and Razr Maxx, which has been leaked and other sites have a copy.

    Personally, I don't want a half baked version of ICS for my device. Give them time to finish.

    And just because other websites post information about when we get a ROM update to ICS does not mean it is so.
    Current: HTC One (M8), Pebble, Chromecast
    Retired Device (in order): Samsung Galaxy S4, Droid Razr Maxx, HTC Thunderbolt, HTC myTouch 4G, Blackberry's Bold, 8900 (Curve)

    This was the first phone advertized at launch that it would get ICS (followed close behind by Rezound), and the two of them and the Bionic were the first three on Verizon's ICS list, but no where did they say that it would be the first to get it. That's an assumption on your part. In fact from what I have seen thus far there are only three phones that have ICS (Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S, and the HTV Vivid), not sure where you got that it was the last to get it. It will come soon enough. The phone works just fine on Gingerbread.

    Let me explain this again. I didn't mean it would get it first. I meant was it the first phone advertised that its selling point was that it would be upgradeable to ICS. I understand it wasn't going to be the first one to get it. I'm speaking on the fact that this was one of the first phones that was marketed as "upgradeable to ICS". So any consumer would then think they were near the front of the line to get ICS. I apologize to all for my miswording.

    Yes it is and yes it is. It will come soon enough. If you want to see why they take their time do a search for the Gingerbread update for the Droid X and see what happens when a release is rushed.

    Oh yeah I totally agree. But at the same time I feel like it should be near the front. Cause you know plenty of people (not me actually) bought the phone thinking "man when ICS starts rolling out ill be getting it then cause I bought the first phone that was "upgradeable to ICS". All in all my thread was just an observance.

    Setting aside the best buy rumor there have been leaked builds for both the Razr and Rezound. It is a virtual certainty that they will be the first ones to get it. Which one will be first depends on which one gets a release quality build submitted and through TA (Technical Acceptance) first. At this point you will have to be satisfied with either first or second place. Other than that it is impossible to be certain.
