Motorola to release first Android 4.0 devices six weeks after final ICS build [updated]

October 25th, 2011 at 11:35 AM

Motorola Mobility announced on its Twitter account Tuesday that it will release devices powered by Google’s latest Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) operating system six weeks after Google releases the final build. “We’ll be releasing devices for ICS 6 weeks after Google releases the final version of it,” a company representative wrote on Motorola’s Twitter account. The company already confirmed that it will update the DROID RAZR, its latest smartphone, to the new operating system in early 2012. It is unclear what Motorola has up its sleeve, although we suspect it has both new tablets and smartphones coming down the pipeline. Android 4.0 offers an entirely revamped user interface, a new Android Bump feature for sharing content using near-field communications (NFC), resizable widgets and more. The first device to offer the operating system is Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus, which will be available from Verizon Wireless “later this year.”

UPDATE: In a second tweet posted some time later, Motorola suggests that it was referring to software updates for existing devices rather than new Ice Cream Sandwich device launches. “We’ve communicated that we are planning to upgrade DROID RAZR (as well as Motorola RAZR, DROID BIONIC, and Motorola XOOM) to Ice Cream Sandwich, and will provide more precise guidance on timing within 6 weeks post public push of ICS by Google,” a Motorola spokesperson told BGR in a statement.
