Android ICS updates for the Motorola Droid RAZR and Sony Xperia S showcased on video
If your phone of choice is a Motorola Droid RAZR, you still have some waiting to do to get your first taste of (Android) Ice Cream Sandwich. Despite Motorola now being owned by Google, its device update track record is one of the worst in the industry (at least when it comes to waiting times for updates). But while you wait, why not get a feel for what’s coming in that elusive update?
Motorola has made a series of videos that show you how Android ICS will look and work on the Droid RAZR and international RAZR, and posted them to one of its websites in Japan.
Here’s one of the videos, showing some general moving around the new interface:
This is just one of many videos. The others cover everything from the new lockscreen to the camera UI. Go to Droid Life to see them all.
If you bought a Sony Xperia S and didn’t check which version of Android it ran beforehand, you probably felt quite disappointed to find out that somehow Sony launched its flagship phone for 2012 with Gingerbread on board. That while even if HTC managed to release the One X and One S earlier – with Ice Cream Sandwich.
Inexplicable decisions from phone makers aside, we recently got word that the Xperia S will get its Android 4 update at the end of June. That means you too still have some waiting to do, but to make that easier, here’s a video for you:
This was recorded by Thai community site SonyXP and spotted by Xperia Blog. It’s basically a demo video showing Sony’s interpretation of the Android ICS update, which will have to keep you happy until next month.
