Unbelievable. I have a 7 month old atrix 4g and won't get the ics update because i'm in Canada. Not much of an apple fan, but you can see the ecosystem is much better. What happened to google requiring manufacturers to provide software support for 18 months? I'm not that upset about it, just kind of surprised that the system actually works in this way. Definitely a learning experience. My word to motorola..... Adios

if all manufacturers update all of their phones, then few will buy their new phones that has only minor hardware upgrade, i like the strategy of apple that release only 1 phone per year, but make sure that the reason old phones can't get updates is due to hardware limitations.

if they won't release ics on old phones atleast unlock that damn bootloader

I bought defy + recently and this is the coolest of all but it was shocking that they are not giving ICS to defy +.

As a friend rightly pointed out to me. When the Google Motorola deal goes through Motorola will most probably be forced to provide updates. They will be dragged kicking and screaming out of their laziness! ROFL!

Please motorola. DEfy+ is worth upgrading to ICS.
Please do the necessary. Defy+ owners please send email to the developer of Motorola to include ICS in Defy+.

Wrong, sammy pushed it back to late 3Q early 4th so it will be 2013 before moto even gets around to it. Mean while 5.0 3rd Q lmfao never happen.

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2012-02-16 08:28 from 5i4e - click to readOur comments here is about Motorola's "unwilling" upgrade, stay with it. It is a fact that Motorola do not upgrade their phones with the latest Android version even for one of their flagship, Atrix 1 which definitely had up to date hardware and new phones like Defy+. Go look through motorola's previous line of mobile and you'll realized some other phones do not even have any upgrade at all such at charm and xt720.

With other manufacturer such as Sony updating all Xperia (which happen to be single core) released in 2011 and even Samsung updates its super low end Galaxy mini from Froyo to gingerbread 2.3.4 and recently to 2.3.6 (do you need me to quote more examples?), Motorola is not doing justice to all their consumers.

Please bear in mind that I'm not being personal to your reply on my earlier post but please be sensitive or sympathetic to all other Motorola users who are not using the new Razr like you do which is selected for ICS update.
