Soak Test Invites hitting Atrix 4G, ICS possible

By Gary Johnson - Jan 27, 2012

The Android platform is currently looking to upgrading to the Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, but the process could be a long winded operation with some handset manufactures seemingly taking an age to get the software out to devices. Today we have news that Soak Test Invites have been hitting owners of the Motorola Atrix 4G, and an ICS update being in the works could be possible.

Motorola have been pretty busy in recent weeks getting select users to test operating systems for some of their devices. First we heard of owners testing the Android 4.0 update for the Motorola Xoom, which was shortly followed by a general release of the software.

Then a couple of days ago it was the turn of Motorola Droid RAZR users getting invites for testing of a minor software update that fixed some reported bugs. Now today according to a report over at Pocket Now owners of the Atrix 4G have been getting invites from the manufacturer , but as with any Motorola Soak Test invite users will be going into it blind so won’t know what they will be downloading.

This has led many to speculate that the testing could be for a pre-release version of the new Android operating system, but others think it may just be some minor bug fixes and enhancements just like the Droid RAZR.

Previously Motorola had said they would start releasing the new Android software six weeks after the final version was released by Google, but have not yet mentioned anything about the Atrix 4G. Do you have the Motorola Atrix 4G?
