According to Motorola's Facebook page the update is "rolling out to select users, and will be available more broadly over the coming week".
The roll out will test any issues that the selected users may encounter before releasing it for everybody else to download.
It has been a rather long wait for UK Motorola Android smartphone users – the update was confirmed in a promotional video back in early July. Anyone with the Verizon Droid RAZR equivalent over in the US received the update in June. While many have been waiting with anticipation for this Ice Cream Sandwich update, Google last month unveiled the Jelly Bean successor for a select few handsets.
Ice Cream Sandwich contains new features such as the ability to group apps in folders, a remodelled lock screen, the ICS browser and a facial recognition unlock tool. The home screen differs from the classic Motorola launcher, with a fresh Android interface containing a horizontal scrolling application list, and widgets can now be selected and moved to the home screen.
Those with Motorola RAZR and RAZR MAXX devices should await the update within the next couple of days.
