Look near the top where it says:

"A note about Ice Cream Sandwich:"

The Atrix is probably in the middle of a soak test as we speak:

You know... I've never been a big fan of Motorola's designs when it comes to smart phones, but I gotta say: That is one sexy phone.

Update went smoothly, but no visible differences tat I can see. Seems mostly cosmetic changes (name changes for the same old apps). It will be interesting to see if the camera app is improved.

I'm on EDGE at the moment on California Zephyr #5 so not updating quite yet. Really I dot care at all since its still Gingerbread. Motorola hasn't confirmed whether or not this more than capable device will even get ICS so it may have no future in my life. Could very week be headed to a Craigslist near you.

This is a moderate update in my opinion. It did add one nice music player but that is it. The Haptic feedback has been reduced to a nice level. The camera does respond and take pictures quicker.

Sadly the one update I need was not included: end call button that works. I am on my third atrix2 and still cannot get the end call button to function properly; have to tap it about 4 or 5 times. Irritating. Maybe I'll trade for another AT&T device.

Battery life seems to be the same.

Piney, didn't we go through this MONTHS ago??? :) I can't believe your bad luck. I have kept my eye on it ever since then and haven't had a single one.

After I installed the update...I got a message saying that it failed. But I checked the version and it was up2date. Unusual...

thatsteveguy says:
