We went hands on with the Motorola Droid RAZR smartphone yesterday at the unveil event in NYC. We think the smartphone is pretty cool. As cool as the RAZR is we were more than a little bit bummed that it wouldn’t come out of the box with Android 4.0 ready to go. Motorola has offered up the time frame for the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update to hit the RAZR though.
The update will come OTA in “early” 2012. That is far from a firm date, but at least we know it is coming and will be an easy install. The smartphone was unveiled in NYC yesterday and all we know for a launch date so far is November. Right out of the box the RAZR will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread. A more precise date for the upgrade will be offered later.
We do know the hardware specs for the RAZR thanks to our quality hands on time you can see on video here. The device gets a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED screen, a 1.2GHz OMAP 4 processor, and 1GB of RAM. It also has 16GB of storage and supports the Verizon 4G LTE network.
