Motorola breaks promise of Android upgrade

No Ice Cream sandwich for you

Motorola has ditched a promise to upgrade the users of the Atrix 4G to Android 4.0. The manufacturer broke the news with a recent update to its Android upgrade schedule, noting that the Atrix 4G, Electrify, and Photon 4G will all remain on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, rather than making the jump to Ice Cream Sandwich.

Motorola promised to upgrade the Atrix 4G by the end of the year. It is not clear how many of the devices were flogged on the basis of their owners thinking they were getting an upgradpe.

The Atrix 4G is pretty old, as it was released in early 2011. This would suggest, then, that owners of these devices would be eligible to receive the $100 credit that Motorola promised earlier this month.

Earlier this year, Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside  said the "new" Motorola that would devote more efforts toward issues like software fragmentation. Just a few days ago, Motorola VP of product Punit Soni reassured users that his company will be more transparent about its upgrade schedule.

Clearly that applies to “new” phones and means that Motorola does not have to fulfil old promises.
