More often than not, the leaked internal document from Best Buy that surfaced a couple of days back has gotten you all fired up with the supposed landing of the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx today. Sad to say, after getting your hopes high, it’s high time to play the waiting game yet again as it looks more than likely that the eagerly-awaited update to the latest version of the Android mobile operating system for the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx is not happening today. This should have been expected actually given the fact that when Motorola came out with information concerning the Ice Cream Sandwich update schedule for the handsets in its lineup, the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx was pegged at the Planning and Evaluation stage which means that the handset is set to wait a little longer before the latest version of Android will land on the handset.

Though the delay in the landing of ICS on the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx is not entirely Motorola’s fault, the manufacturer on the other hand is all set to appease the frustrated users of the handset by letting it be known that it has plans of giving the device some software update love, albeit a non-ICS one. This has been confirmed when members of the Motorola Feedback Network received a confirmation email from Motorola that the soak test slated for the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx will commence tomorrow and the new software to be tested will be pushed out to the handsets of the MFN members tomorrow morning.
In addition to that, the full changelog of the impending software update for the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx has already been made known so we fairly have an idea what goodies and treats the software update will bring to the handset once it gets officially rolled out. The update that will be rolled out to the members of MFN has a build version of 6.12.181 and the numerous and enhancements and bug fixes that is supposedly will bring to the table are increased battery life for the handset, addition of MotoCast widget to the device, modifications in the storage settings screen for a more accurate display of information, implementation of IPv6 support for updated device interaction with the network, correction of the 4G coverage indicator for a more accurate display of data connectivity, enhancements in the visual voicemail performance of the handset, correction of the connect tones and loud call end when using Bluetooth for audio calls, fixing of Share app functionality in Google Play, improvements in the text messaging feature of the handset to ensure the timely reception of SMS messages, enhanced browsing experience with the addition of easy access to bookmarked sites, updates and security enhancements on the VCast application and enhanced device security with the prevention of unauthorized access of telephony database of the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx by third parties.
