Motorola Lists ICS Update Schedule for All Devices

From the 2nd quarter of 2012, most of the Android mobile phones and devices from Motorola would start getting the update to their operating system, i.e. the Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 version. In the view, there is almost the entire list of Android devices which are going to get the update sooner or later, and unlike Samsung, Motorola hasn’t ignored any smartphone purposefully except the reason that the phone is too basic to handle the update and the heavy OS version. The reason for the time being taken for the updates to be released for each device is that the OS has to go through the various steps before being available to the public – Evaluation & Planning, Development, Testing and finally Available.

There are even a few mobiles which would remain at the Android 1.6 or 2.1 versions as they were the first devices that entered the Android market and have the specifications which cannot handle the ICS update.
