Motorola has made liking the DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX pretty hard over the last few weeks. Leak after leak seemed to indicate that the long-awaited Ice Cream Sandwich update, or a test, or a beta, or something, was just around the corner. Each time we’ve been thoroughly disappointed when the update either failed to materialize or was immediately denied. Ready for one more glimmer of hope, Motorola owners? Video walkthroughs of the DROID RAZR ROM have made their way to YouTube, complete with the new Ice Cream Sandwich interface.
The videos themselves are pretty routine, designed for those without any sort of familiarity with smartphones. Motorola’s been including them on their support website and even on devices themselves for some time. There’s no insight to be gleaned here beyond what we already know – the ICS ROM was previously leaked, after all – but the fact that these videos have been produced and appear ready for prime time is promising. We’ve mirrored the first video just in case Motorola or Verizon send a take-down notice to YouTube, but you can see all five videos (for the time being) in YouTube user Revowii’s channel.
There’s still no official word form either Motorola or Verizon on when we can expect to see Ice Cream Sandwich for the flagship DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX, aside from the fact that it’s coming sometime in the nebulous future. We’re coming up on six months since the DROID RAZR was released, and almost the same amount of time since the source code for Android 4.0 was made available. With ASUS, Samsung, HTC and others already providing updates for some high-end phones, needless to say, Motorola owners are becoming increasingly angry at their outdated software.
