Among the handsets in the lineup of Motorola, the Droid Razr Maxx 4G perhaps is the most capable among the bunch. The handset brings to the table an impressive set of components and capabilities but what sets it apart from the rest of the smartphone pack is its massive 3300 mAh power pack. This gigantic battery, figuratively that is, basically gives the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx 4G a battery life unlike what we’ve seen in the past. With the handset’s support for the LTE network of Verizon and the fact that LTE connectivity is a major battery hog, the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx 4G’s massive battery ensures that you have enough juice to enjoy all the perks that goes along with your handset.
Despite all the good things that have been said about the handset in the past, there is still a missing part in its equation and that is the upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. With all the other flagship devices from other manufacturers already upgraded to the latest iteration of the Google mobile operating system, the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx 4G is disadvantaged in this department and is still stuck in the Gingerbread generation. In fact, when Motorola first came out with its ICS update list back in February, the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx 4G was still in the Planning and Evaluation phase of its ICS development. This simply means that the handset still has a long way to go before it finally gets a treat of Ice Cream Sandwich.
More recently however, the manufacturer took center stage to give an update about the status of its ICS development for the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx 4G. With this updated ICS list, the handset is now in the Development phase but what really caught our attention is the fact that the official ICS rollout for the smartphone is slated to get rolled out by the end of Q2.
Initially, the update was supposed to hit the airwaves last May 21 but certain updates were done in the servers of Verizon which basically delayed the rollout of the update. The wireless provider confirmed that the OTA update of Ice Cream Sandwich for the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx 4G will now be unleashed come June 12 but the delay brought about one good thing for the handset – instead of just getting 4.0.3, the handset will stand to get updated to Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich instead. Though a lot of users of the handset got disappointed with the delay, we are able to rationalize that ICS will still land on the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx 4G, no matter what. The question is though will it be as reported, or like with so many other handsets, will the 12th come and go with no sign of it. Please feel free to leave comments reporting whether you did or did not get an update today.
Of course, if you happen to be the brave and adventurous type, you always have the option of having an unofficial ICS build flashed on your Motorola Droid Razr Maxx 4G. But if you’ve already waited this long for the official version of the update, what’s another couple of days of waiting for the official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update to land on your Motorola Droid Razr Maxx 4G for that matter?
