Motorola Backtracks; The Atrix 4G Will Not Receive Ice Cream Sandwich After All
This has to be the first time we have seen something like this. First, not too long ago Motorola promised that the Atrix 4G smartphone would eventually be getting upgraded to Android 4.0/Ice Cream Sandwich in Q3 of this year. Now, they have completely backtracked on this position. They released a chart indicating that the phone will remain on Gingerbread and will not be getting ICS. There is no indication as to why this is happening, but it does seem to coincide with their typical behavior for older phones and eliminating the update schedule for devices at around the two-year mark.
This seems like a very poor move on their part. It wouldn't be so bad if they had simply not promised to bring ICS to the device in the first place. Now they are just making themselves look bad. How can Moto users ever trust the update schedule again after this?

Yeah, over of Atrix Forums we had members getting totally freaked out over the announcement. It's not very good customer relations to pull a stunt like this, but there's not much the end users can do about it other than to root their phones and install a custom rom.
