Motorola did have a roadmap released earlier this year that indicated a list of their own Android-powered devices which were due to receive the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update. Bear in mind that this is not even the latest version of the Android operating system, as we are now staring down at Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as the latest update. It does sound rather unfortunate that Motorola is unable to keep to their promise for the full list of announced devices back then, where the updated chart points out that owners of the Motorola Atrix 4G, Photon 4G and the Electrify will not be able to enjoy the sweet, sweet Ice Cream Sandwich update, but rather, to be stuck with Gingerbread. No just desserts there for (previously) excited owners, don’t you think so?
We do keep our fingers crossed that this change would just end here, and it will not affect other devices. After all, I do own a smartphone that runs on Gingerbread, and after using Ice Cream Sandwich for a couple of weeks on another device, it is pretty hard to go back to Gingerbread. No love lost there, it is just that I feel my smartphone experience has been stunted.
