Motorola has been quite outspoken about the whole Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) fiasco. A few months ago it explained the process, and more recently Moto’s blond bombshell, Christy Wyatt, told us to blame the hardware.
Now the US manufacturer has posted a full Ice Cream Sandwich timeline on the Motorola Owners’ Forum, and it’s not particularly good news, I’m afraid.
Owners of the original Motorola Xoom in the US got a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich in January, but it’ll be April at the earliest before any other devices get in on the action.
Dozens of devices appear on Motorola’s Ice Cream Sandwich timetable, however only a handful apply to us in Europe. They are:
- Motorola Xoom (Wi-Fi) and Motorola Razr – rollouts begin Q2
- Motorola Xoom 2 – rollouts begin Q3
- Motorola Atrix , Motoroal Pro+ and Motorola Xoom (3G) – “further details to follow”
Interestingly, European owners of the Motorola Razr will apparently get Ice Cream Sandwich before their transatlantic counterparts, with the latter crew being told to await further details. Bad times.
Not great news then, but hats off to Motorola for the transparency. And no, I'm not just saying that because I have a soft spot for Christy.
