Ice Cream Sandwich Update For Motorola, HTC, Asus Smartphones Get Updated …

Android 4.0, or Ice Cream Sandwich, was announced to a world on Oct 19, 2011, and became accessible along with a Galaxy Nexus on Dec 15, 2011; dual months later, only a reported one percent of Android smartphones are using ICS. We’re removing a clearer design of how shortly this series will be increasing, however, as several vital Android phone manufacturers have updated their Ice Cream Sandwich recover schedules — unfortunately, for many renouned Android models, it’s looking like a prolonged wait.


First, MOTOROLA has posted a updated Ice Cream Sandwich rollout schedule to a online owner’s forum, and several of a many renouned models don’t even have a timeframe for an ICS upgrade. Though Motorola‘s Xoom inscription already has Android 4.0, other Motorola inclination are nonetheless to ambience ICS, and might not for a prolonged time. The beginning Android 4.0 refurbish designed for an American Motorola device, for example, will land in Jul 2012 during a earliest: a Atrix 2, Atrix 4G, Photon 4G, and Motorola Xyboard inscription are all scheduled to accept Motorola‘s ICS refurbish starting in Q3 2012.

Leading models like a Droid RAZR, Droid RAZR Maxx, Droid Bionic, Droid 3, and Droid X2, meanwhile, are still in what Motorola calls a “Evaluation and Planning proviso (“Phase 1 of 4”) on a trail to Ice Cream Sandwich, and have no genuine calendar for ICS. After Phase 1 (“Evaluation and Planning”) comes “Development,” and afterwards “Testing,” and afterwards Phase 4, Availability. None of those phases have clear lengths of time trustworthy to them.

For what it’s worth, Motorola appears to have depressed behind a possess schedule, as a MOTOROLA exec formerly said in late 2011, that a Droid Razr — a manufacturer’s top-of-the-line phone — would get Ice Cream Sandwich in early 2012. It appears that Motorola will skip on that pledge.

A cackle of other HTC smartphones were name-checked by HTC in a post as well: Android 4.0 for [Deep breath] a HTC Rezound, HTC Vivid, HTC Amaze 4G, HTC EVO 3D, HTC EVO Design 4G, HTC Incredible S, HTC Desire S and HTC Desire HD “will be entrance after this year.”

HTC had formerly said (in Nov 2011) that a HTC EVO 3D, HTC EVO Design 4G* and HTC Amaze 4G would be accessible in early 2012. From HTC‘s updated schedule, it appears a association will skip that deadline.


Asus, meanwhile, recently announced that it, too, will skip a due deadline for upgrading a Transformer Prime to Ice Cream Sandwich, announcing that a inscription will accept Android 4.0 in Feb or March. The Transformer Prime was formerly approaching to get ICS during some indicate in late January.

In reduction central news (“This Week In Android Rumors!”), a Samsung Galaxy S II and code new Galaxy Note have been sloping to accept Android 4.0 in early March, according to a tweet by mobile attention insider Eldar Murtazin. Samsung had scheduled a Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note for a Q1 2012 Ice Cream Sandwich update, so Murtazin’s unsourced twitter isn’t so far-fetched.
