Motorola has released more details regarding its plans for the Ice Cream Sandwich update, and some devices are set to miss out.
A recent blog post by Motorola confirmed that it's starting to roll out the Android 4.0 update to certain devices, but highlights that it won't be bringing it to every handset.
Motorola states: "we want the new release to improve our devices. If we determine that can't be done - well then, we're not able to upgrade that particular device."
Update must improve device
Motorola will be rolling out the update to its top end devices, including the Motorola Xoom, Motorola Xoom 2 and Xoom 2 Media Edition tablets, Motorola Razr (Droid Razr in US) and Razr Maxx (Droid Razr Maxx in US).
This may be a bitter pill to swallow for those who own a handset which is going to be shunned by Motorola. If you want to check the status of your Motorola device, a full run down of ICS updates can be found on the Motorola blog.
Is Motorola right to refuse some of its handsets the update, especially those under a year old, or is this simply not good enough? Let us know you thoughts below.
