Motorola Not Delivering Android 4.0 Until Q3 the Earliest
Updated: clarified that the Xoom already has ICS.
Motorola today announced an approximate schedule for planned upgrades to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for its devices. In the U.S., Motorola said that the Atrix 2, Atrix 4G, Photon 4G, and Xyboards 8.2/10.1 will receive Ice Cream Sandwich some time in the third quarter of 2012. Motorola is still in the "planning and evaluation phase" with respect to Android 4.0 for the bulk of Motorola's existing smartphones. That includes recent launches such as the Droid 4, Droid RAZR MAXX, Droid RAZR, Droid Bionic, Droid 3 X2, and Electrify. After the planning phase, Motorola will need to complete the development phase and testing phase before the updates become available to end users. Motorola has already updated the original Xoom to Ice Cream Sandwich. A significant portion of Motorola's older devices, such as the Droid 2, Bravo, Defy, and others won't be updates beyond Android 2.2 or 2.3.

So glad I got the dev device
Q3 At the Earliest...
Oh, I think I know.... you guys make garbage phones. Actually, you guys make.... garbage everything. Seriously, the laptop dock that ran Firefox worse than a 3-year old Netbook?
You are terrible at supporting your hardware, and you half-bake everything you make. Now you're desperately suing Apple for wireless patents you had from over a decade ago because god knows you wouldn't know where to begin developing a decent mobile platform of your own.
It'd be best for consumers if Motorola was simply put out of its mis...
1 year!!!! :o
Isn't the Xyboard supposed to be more advanced? Then how come the Xoom gets the update first?
XDA posters don't have to comply with carrier testing and distribution phases, they just make it and allow people to download it. It's not tested 100% working, or fixed of all the bugs. In fact, being an XDA forum lurk...
Why the f'ing around?
Hopefully, if Google gets their hands on Moto soon, they can change things for the better.
