Motorola commits to an Ice Cream Sandwich update schedule

Since the official announcement of Google's latest and greatest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich last week, the update timeline for the current crop of Android devices has been a seriously hot topic of discussion. Motorola is among the first major players to spill the beans on the matter via its own Twitter feed.

As you can see above, the tech giant vows to update its flagship devices within six weeks of Google's release of the final version of the OS. Sure, the tweet does say they will release "devices for ICS" but since it's an answer about upcoming updates, we guess it's just a typo and what they really meant was "ICS for devices".

And since Google widely expected to release the source code shortly after the Galaxy Nexus goes on sale, we can look at January 2012 as the likely time of the update.

Motorola clarifies later in its Twitter account that the devices in question are the Droid RAZR, Droid Bionic and the Xoom slate.

While such an endeavor might look quite ambitious at a first glance, we must take account Motorola's marriage to Google. Once we do, things begin to make a bit more sense.

In any case, given the manufacturers previous record of Android updates, we urge you to take this twitter post with a tiny pinch of salt. As always, we will keep you posted on any developments on the subject.
