The company has confirmed that it will be bringing Ice Cream Sandwich (aka Android 4.0) to as many of its Android devices as possible after the Motorola Razr and Motorola Xoom (plus a couple of US-only handsets, the Droid Razr and Droid Bionic).
The company took to a lengthy blog-post to peremptorily excuse any time-delay in getting the software update to your handsets.
It explained that there are several stages to implementing the updates, including adapting the software for various hardware configurations, stabilising and testing, getting the networks' go ahead and a bit more testing before the software update is released.
"We are planning on upgrading as many of our phones as possible. The ability to offer the upgrade depends on a number of factors including the hardware/device capabilities, the underlying chipset software support, the ICS support and then the ability to support the Motorola value add software," concludes the post.
