It has been a long time coming, but at last it seems like Verizon is finally ready to deliver on their promised Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Motorola Droid RAZR. Some users, not all it seems, have received a free text from the carrier, saying that Android 4.0 is on the way soon.
If you are not already on a custom version of Ice Cream Sandwich, then this update to Android 4.0 has been a long time coming – eight months and counting so far since the launch back in November 2011 in actual fact. Whether you are too frustrated with Verizon to even care at this point is irrelevant though, as the official update should be arriving before the end of this month.
Some of you may have feared that another delay was on the cards, since Verizon and Motorola’s revised Q2 2012 deadline has well and truly reached its limit. However, users have reported that a message has now arrived on their device, informing them that the Android 4.0 update is on the way soon and that they should download an alternative IM app, since the current Verizon one will not be supported by ICS.
The big question that everyone is wanting to know right now though, is how soon is soon? If any other problems do arise after sending out this message, you can only imagine how angry Verizon customers are going to be. With any luck though, the update will be out before the end of this week and we’ll all be discussing a potential Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update in the months to come.
Did you receive this notification from Verizon over the weekend, because we’re hearing that some users did not?
