Waiting for Ice Cream Sandwich
The source code for the Ice Cream Sandwich was released
After the first Google Android phone supporting Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is already available in the U.K. stores, now every Android owner is waiting to learn when he'll be able to get the new operating system on his device. The good news for the Android users is that the source code for the Ice Cream Sandwich was released and the developers can get to work on porting the software to other devices.
In the article you can find answer to the most important questions regarding the Ice Cream Sandwich porting to more Android devices. If you are wondering whether your Android smartphone will get the new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich version of the software you might want to read it.
While Motorola and other manufacturers have promised updates for newer devices, they haven't said much about older devices, such as Droid 2, but they probably won't get the new OS. The reason is that there was a bit of a struggle getting Gingerbread on the Droid 2. And the second reason is that the device is old in terms of smartphone years. Verizon and Motorola will probably focus on making upgrades available for the newer devices first. And they're probably hoping that customers with older devices will soon be eligible for an upgrade and will sign up for another contract with a newer smartphone.
If history is any indication, even once they say an update is
coming, it could still take months. That's what happened with the
Gingerbread update for your Droid 2. So even if your phone is not an old model you'll probably wait a few more months until the updates are released.
