The Motorola Razr was launched mere hours before the Samsung/Google event where we saw the launch of Ice Cream Sandwich and the reference platform for Ice Cream Sandwich the Galaxy Nexus. This was quite a handicap as the Razr will launch with Android 2.3 Gingerbread but Alain Mutricy the Senior Vice President, Portfolio and Product Management at Motorola Mobility has been advising journalists that Motorola has plans to update the Razr to Ice Cream Sandwich at the ‘start of 2012’. He then went on to advise

‘the move to ICS would incorporate all of the innovation that has gone into the new RAZR handset and a more precise date would be given in the future.’

So even without launching yet, they are already looking ahead to updates, which with Google purchasing Motorola I would expect quick updates for their smartphone lineup, so we`ll look forward to nailing down this more precise date when it`s released.
