More than two months after Verizon’s versions got theirs, the Motorola RAZR and RAZR MAXX units sold in Europe are finally starting to receive the update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. We thought this would happen sooner, as we told you towards the beginning of this month, but only now is the update actually live. Only Motorola knows what took it so long.
Anyway, if you own a RAZR or RAZR MAXX purchased in Europe unlocked, your phone should have notified you that an update is available. If it hasn’t, try manually checking by going to Settings > About phone. If you’ve got your device from your operator, then you’ll probably have some more waiting to do until that specific company approves the update for its airwaves. The only exception so far seems to be O2 UK – its customers are already receiving the update.
As it’s a 375 MB download, you should probably only do the deed while on Wi-Fi. After updating, your handset will be on software version 672.180.41.
