Moto, Moto, Moto. You aren’t making any friends, least of all among owners of the DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX. When news broke out of Best Buy that the flagship phones would be getting the long overdue Ice Cream Sandwich update last Wednesday, then preliminary registration for the soak test on Motorola’s support forums began, customers were elated: after six long months of waiting, their superphones would be up to date. Sadly, Best Buy seems t have been completely full of it, and the soak test was just a Gingerbread update. Now word comes out od the official forum that Moto is skipping the Gingerbread update altogether and going straight for Ice Cream Sandwich… or not.

Motorola may (or may not) start DROID RAZR ICS soak test soon

A clarifying post from a Moto administrator said that the soak test would be replaced with the real, honest-to-goodness Ice Cream Sandwich ROM. Then his post was unceremoniously removed. It would seem that Motorola’s left hand doesn’t know what its right hand is doing. We know that the software is coming – heck, plenty of people are running it right now thanks to a leaked version of the official ROM. But neither Motorola nor Verizon have given any sort of schedule for the actual update, beyond the fact that it’s coming… which they’ve been saying since the DROID RAZR was announced in October.

International RAZR owners have it a little easier, though not much. At least they know that the update will come in the second quarter (i.e. “the end of June at the latest, pinkie swear”) and due to their identical software, owners of the new RAZR MAXX should get the update at the same time. International RAZR owners also get a little more leeway than US citizens when it comes to custom ROMs, thanks to an unlockable bootloader, a luxury Motorola and Verizon have not seen fit to bless us with.

So, when’s Ice Cream Sandwich coming? At this point, we’re not prepared to guess. But frankly, tomorrow wouldn’t be soon enough.
