Motorola has officially begun the roll out of Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich update for its Razr and Razr Maxx smartphones.
Motorola had announced the Android ICS upgrade for the devices just about a week back for both the devices. But even though the roll out has begun, it still is not available for all the users and is only available to a limited number of users but will be made available for all the devices in the days to come.
The ICS update is made available over the air which can be accessed by heading into “Menu – Settings – About phone – System updates” from the device.
Apart from the regular Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich features, the update for the Motorola Razr and Razr Maxx smartphones will bring some new features to the devices. The home screen now includes a customisable Launch Bar, Enhanced notifications window including access to settings menu and new swipe to dismiss functionality for individual notifications.
There is also a direct access lock screen taking users directly to camera, text, messages, or Unlock.
The addition of a new video calling icon to the apps menu makes it easy for users to make video calls with the free video calling apps ooVoo and Tango.
Motorola has added its own set of apps along with the Android 4.0 ICS update. These apps include backup assistant plus, Smartactions, video calling portal and new versions of Google Mobile apps with enhanced features.
Motorola offers the Razr XT910 smartphone in India for Rs 26,500 and recently introduced the Razr Maxx for Rs 31,590.
The Motorola Razr and Razr Maxx feature a 4.3-inch Super Amoled touchscreen display with 540×960 pixel resolution, dual core 1.2 GHz TI OMAP 4430 mobile processor, PowerVR SGX540 graphics and 1 GB RAM.
Featuring an 8 megapixel camera at the back and a front facing camera in the front, it features strong Kevlar plastic made back panel. With mere 7.1 mm slim form factor, the Razr Maxx comes with a 3300 mAh built-in.
