Motorola’s Messy Ice Cream Sandwich Speaks Volumes On Android (via Informationweek)
Android system updates have been a contentious issue for as
long as the platform has existed on more than one device. The newest system
available from Google, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, was announced in October,
and Google released the code to its manufacturer partners in November. So far,
only one smartphone–the Galaxy Nexus–is shipped with Android 4.0 on board.
Motorola has brought a number of new smartphones in the last few months to
market, including the Droid Razr, Razr Maxx, and Droid
4. All three phones, sold by Verizon Wireless, were sold with the promise
that they’d be updated from Android 2.3 Gingerbread to Android 4.0 Ice Cream
Interesting take on the topic.
