When Motorola first released the details in its plans to have the handsets in its stable upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich back in February, we saw the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx 4G still in the Evaluation and Planning stage of its ICS development. What this simply meant is that despite the impressive specs sheet of the handset, it will still take some time before it can actually get a taste of the latest iteration of the Google mobile operating system.
Since then, there were a couple of rumors that suggested that the handset is about to get updated to ICS. One rumors sticks to mind and this is when Best Buy leaked that Ice Cream Sadnwich is finally landing on the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx 4G last April. We all know that that particular rumor fizzled because no ICS landed on the handset for that matter. There were other rumors about the handset finally getting the ICS update but sad to say, all of these turned out to be just rumors and nothing panned out. As for the users of the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx 4G, they had to be content with using leaked ICS builds on the handset just to get an idea of how the handset will perform once it already runs ICS in the hood.
A couple of weeks ago, the rumor mills went crazy again when the manufacturer posted videos of the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx 4G in all its ICS-laden glory. At that time, the speculation is that the handset is finally getting its taste of Ice Cream Sandwich but sad to say, that did not pan out yet again as the ICS update for the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx 4G got delayed.
This time around, another rumor is circulating about the supposed ICS update for the handset. However, this one has the sound of being official. The source of this rumor is the fact that Motorola has already sent out soak test invites to the members of its feedback network to test a “new software release”. There was no specific mention of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich but since a leaked ICS build for the handset surfaced recently, could there be anything else other than ICS?
As for the soak test, a reliable source whispered that it is set to commence on June 22 while the official rollout of the official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx 4G will start on June 27. Again, these are still unconfirmed and should be taken with a grain of salt. But since Motorola said in the past that it will unleash the ICS update for the handset by Q2, there is a big chance that this could really be the real thing. Hopefully, the manufacturer will do everything in its power to meet this particular deadline. You can purchase the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx starting at $99.
