We've known for some time that the Motorola Droid 4 is on track to receive an update to Android 4.0 before the end of the third quarter. Now it looks like the long-awaited ICS upgrade could be close at hand, with the news that Motorola is preparing a soak task for the LTE-powered QWERTY slider.
According to posts on the Android Central forums, emails are going out to Droid 4 owners on the Motorola Feedback Network asking them to participate in the testing of a "new software release." Though ICS isn't mentioned by name, we'd be surprised if Moto were going to such trouble for another Gingerbread-based firmware revision. There's also no indication of when the soak test will begin, but based on earlier tests, we're probably looking at weeks, rather than months, until the public release is ready.

I'm already running ICS wit gummy, but if chrome is working on the official release (and it should be) then I might switch over.
Is it just me, or is Motorola currently the worst at updating. Or is it a Verizon thing?
Definitely a Motorola thing. The Atrix line hasn't seen any updates either despite being promised in Q3.
