Android 4.0 for Droid Razr delayed, Verizon says June 12

A source at Big Red says Ice Cream Sandwich will begin being pushed to the thin flagship phone starting next week.

Soon to be a little sweeter...

Last month I reported that Motorola Droid Razr and Razr Maxx users might get to taste the sweetness of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as soon as May 21, while Xoom 3G and 4G owners seemed stuck in Honeycomb thanks to an upgrade holding pattern for the foreseeable future.

That was then. Today, Verizon began pushing the Android update to Xoom users while Razr owners like myself are still hanging out in our digital gingerbread houses waiting for the next course of mobile OS dessert.

I got in touch with a source within Verizon to ask for a status report on the Razr update and was told that over-the-air updates are now expected to commence June 12.

Apparently the cause of the delay was a need to update the servers delivering the goods from Android 4.0.3 to Android 4.0.4.

If you just can't tolerate the wait any longer, you can get a little shot of Droid-based sugar with this leaked, and not fully functional, build of ICS for the Razr.
