Droid RAZR and RAZR Maxx getting Android 4 starting today

Motorola has announced that Android 4.0 will be rolling out to the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR Maxx handsets starting today. Android 4.0 brings a slew of upgrades to the RAZR line, including a revamped home screen and lock screen, home screen folders, face unlock, and camera enhancements. Best of all, possibly due to the merger with Google, Motorola’s UI has been seriously lightened up, several Moto widgets have been removed, and the update looks much more like stock Android 4.0 than don’tcallmeBLUR.

The update should be coming to your device over the next few weeks. It’s possible you may be able to force the upgrade today or tomorrow by manually checking for it by going to settings, about phone, then system updates, though this methodology has been hit or miss with other devices.

Regardless, the very long wait for Ice Cream Sandwich is nearly over, and owners of Motorola’s best Android phones to date will be ushered into the latest and greatest Android OS just in time for the unveiling of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean next week.
