Motorola Atrix 2’s Ice Cream Sandwich update was supposedly due by the Q3 of this year, or that was what we heard at the start of this year by the handset manufacturer. However, no need to worry because it does seems like that Motorola is working very hard in order to keep that promise because an ICS build was spotted in the internal servers of Motorola recently. This new build (if it is completed), will bring the Motorola Atrix 2 software version to 67.21.123, which is going to do it some good considering that it is one of those handsets that has been almost forgotten by people.
The ICS update will do this cell phone and its owners plenty of good, even though they might be a bit impatient at the moment. However, the developers at the XDA are carefully looking into this leaked build and hopefully; they will be releasing a flash-able build of it in the near future. Nevertheless, there is no need to tie your hopes to that because it can go either way.
Back in February of this year, Motorola gave some more information about its devices that will be getting an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich, Android 4.0. In October 2011, Motorola promised that it will an upgrade timeline for ICS and after that, the WiFi Xoom tabled was updated at the start of this year in January. Motorola at that time, announced that the Family Edition Xoom will be upgraded in the second quarter of 2012 and along with it, the Motorola RAZR will also receive an upgrade, which is available in Europe, Canada, and Asia. For the third quarter of 2012, Motorola announced upgrades for the Atrix 2, Motorola Atrix 4G, and that Photon 4G. As for its other devices such as Electrify, Droid 4, Droid Razr Maxx, Droid Razr, and Droid Bionic details will be released as well.
Considering how Motorola is keeping its promises and how it is working hard to meet the deadlines to bring ICS, there might be new and exciting stuff for Motorola users in the store. As of now, we do know that the Motorola Atrix 2 update is due and Motorola is working on it because we now have a leaked proof of it. So, the Motorola Atrix 2 users will have to wait until this ICS upgrade is released for their devices and others will have to wait until their time comes.
The ICS upgrades for Droid Razr and Droid Razr Maxx are near because about a month ago, Motorola sent out invites to testers to test the new software release. Although, nothing was indicated about what the testers are testing, but it was certain that the ICS upgrade was meant for Droid Razr and Droid Razr Maxx.
This year has a lot of updates and upgrades for the Motorola users, which is well deserved given the fact that Motorola’s position has been a bit grim over the past few years. So, whether this new strategy of keeping their customers happy and up to date, going to help them or not, is something we will have to wait and see.
