First, Best Buy said the DROID RAZR, RAZR MAXX, and HTC Rezound would be getting Ice Cream Sandwich on April 4th. When that didn’t happen, Motorola Mobility tweeted that yes, the RAZR and MAXX would indeed be getting ICS, but no official date had been announced. Right after that, a soak test for the two Motorola handsets started, but it was just a bug fix build… still not ICS.
Now, Best Buy has updated their systems with the following:
Updated April 4: The Motorola RAZRs (32GB and 16GB) and MAXX updates scheduled for Wednesday, April 4 have been delayed. Watch Employee News for more details.
Software updates are coming for Verizon handsets next week to bring the OS to Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0). Updates will be delivered via standard Over the Air (OTA) update.
- Friday, April 6: HTC Rezound
It’s interesting that Best Buy would say that ICS has been delayed since Motorola is saying an official date has yet to be announced. More than likely, Best Buy knew of the April 4th soak test update and assumed it would be ICS, not the bug-fixing 6.12.181 build. But apparently the HTC Rezound is still on track for an April 6th ICS update. Or at least that’s when Best Buy thinks it will happen. That’s pretty much right now, so owners of the Rezound can start checking for updates! Did you get it yet?
