Motorola Updates ICS Device List And Timing – Pisses More People Off

Motorola Updates ICS Device List And Timing – Pisses More People Off

Today Motorola has updated their blog and ICS page with new devices that will be receiving updates to Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0). On top of the already known devices like the XOOM and XYBoards Motorola will also be updated the Droid Bionic, the RAZR (entire line up) the Droid 4, the Photon 4G, the Atrix 4G, the Atrix 2 and the Electrify. All of this is great news especially if you recently purchased a RAZR or one of the just released Droid 4’s.

The bad news is their update schedule is very vague and very distant. We’re talking Q3 2012 for phones like the Atrix and the Photon. Some of the reason behind the really long timelines is carrier specific, especially when it comes to Verizon. Motorola and Google haven’t been able to updated the XOOM 3G/4G which is a GED (Google experience device) because of Verizons testing and restrictions. The Droid family from the Bionic on is all more than capable of running ICS, Google and Motorola know this and are pushing the devices as such, but with Verizon in the loop testing and reviewing all the software updates users have to wait to get an official build.

Things like this force users to root their devices just to get the latest software on their devices, which just makes for angry users and angry carriers. Hopefully Motorola & Verizon can work something out to expedite these timelines, for all our sakes.

PSA: Motorola DROID 4 Now Available From Verizon

PSA: Motorola DROID 4 Now Available From Verizon

Quick Friday morning PSA, the Motorola DROID 4 is now available from Verizon Wireless for $199.99 on a new two-year contract ($549.99 full retail). For those of you keeping score at home, this is Motorolas 4G LTE qwerty packing big brother to the DROID RAZR. It sports a dual core 1.2 GHz processor, 4″ qHD display, Gorilla Glass and water-repellent nanocoating.

If you’re in line for an update this is a solid choice especially if you’re one of those folks that hasn’t made the complete jump to full touch screen phones. Motorola has already said that this device will be updated to ICS so the fact that it comes out of the box with Android 2.3.5 shouldn’t scare you away. The only thing hat I don’t like about this is that they decided to go with the 1785 mAH battery instead of the larger 3300 mAH batter from the DROID RAZR MAXX, but they do still say you’ll get 12.5 hours of use out of this battery.

Droid RAZR MAXX Now Available From Verizon Wireless

Droid RAZR MAXX Now Available From Verizon Wireless

Today Verizon launched the Droid RAZR MAXX by Motorola, which amazingly means, that Verizon launched a device on time! The RAZR MAXX is the enhanced version of the initial Droid RAZR increasing specifically the battery from 1780mAH to 3300mAH and promising 21.5 hours of talk time. The increased batter size only increases the thickness of the device from 7.1mm to 8.99mm making it still a ridiculously thin device. The phone carries all of the same benefits of the original Droid RAZR including Gorilla Glass, Kevlar backing, water-repellent nano-coating and 8MP camera. Oddly now the regular Droid RAZR is available in three color choices but the RAZR MAXX is only available in black.

Motorola and Verizon are also touting this as the first 4G LTE phone to last all day and night, which has been one of the major complaints of recent smart phones especially with 4G LTE.  The phone will run you $299.99 on a new 2 year contract, and has cause the beginning of the end of life cycle for the initial Droid RAZR.

A Razr to the Maxx

Droid Razr Maxx

Verizon has made some changes to its Droid Razr by Motorola line-up. In addition to a choice of white or black, the Razr will now be available in purple. The color isn’t the only change, the price has been dropped from $299.99 to $199.99 with a two-year contract.

Smartphone users will never have enough battery life; thats where the Droid Razr Maxx by Motorola (pictured) comes in and tries to relieve that separation anxiety you feel when you leave your charger at home. The Razr Maxx has a 21-hour talk time on a single charge along with 32GB of memory. However, with the larger battery comes with a slightly larger form factor; 8.99mm thick to be exact. You may not be able to chop down street lights with this version but at least you’ll be able to test Verizon’s network 21-hours at a time. It will be $299.99 with a two-year contract.

Both phones run on Verizons 4G LTE network and will ship with Gingerbread but will be updated to ICS. The price drop and availability is “in the coming weeks”

Verizon Set To Launch New 4G LTE Phone on Thursday Dec 15 – The White Droid RAZR

Verizon Set To Launch New 4G LTE Phone on Thursday Dec 15 – The White Droid RAZR

Much to the disappointment of many of our readers, Verizon has still yet to announce the availability of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus which is anticipated to launch on December 15th. Instead they’ve decided to launch the White Droid RAZR on Thursday.

The White Droid RAZR follows in the footsteps of the original as far as specs and configuration goes it’s still 7.1mm thin and sporting a 1.2GHz dual-core processor. It still has Gorilla Glass® and water-resistant nano-coating. It’s still going to cost $299.99 on a new two-year contract. The only real difference is that it’s got white trim.

You can get a $100 discount on the phone if you purchase it alongside a Droid XYBoard, as Motorola has pointed out, it’s possible to get a tablet and a phone for less than what a certain other tablet costs. But it would mean you’re getting the 8.2″ version of the XYBoard, if that’s your sort of thing.

Motorola Droid 4 Appears In Verizon System

Motorola Droid 4 Appears In Verizon System

Well isn’t Motorola on a roll, first the Droid Bionic, then the Droid RAZR and now the Droid 4? This pace of device releases can’t be sustained and has got to be driving Verizon up a wall. We have a rumored device picture found by Droid-life, along with some interesting information. First and foremost this is a full qwerty device similar to the original Droid but it is obviously taking design queues from the Droid RAZR. Other than knowing the device will be 4G and have a screen size similar to the Droid RAZR not much is known at this point but with things going the way they are we’ll go out on a limb and say an 8MP camera, at least 1GB of RAM and a Dual-Core processor.

This does appear to be an early device build and may change with the upcoming Android 4.0 not needing physical buttons perhaps Motorola will see fit to remove the buttons from this device and make the screen a bit larger. It’s early yet but we’ll certainly keep you posted as we bet more information on this device.
