Motorola Blur - Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

Motorola promised quick upgrades to Android 4.0 for their newly released Droid RAZR. It seems they’re sticking to that promise as a leaked build shows they’re close to finishing off an update for the GSM version of the Droid RAZR.

The Ice Cream Sandwich build, names software version “651.167.20 Retail en.EU” is 210.58 MB in all, and can be used to update only the Motorola RAZR XT910. It won’t work on Verizon CDMA Droid RAZR devices. But because of its compatibility with GSM devices, the upgrade will soon be functional in the Afghan Wireless network as well as in pretty much any other network in the world.

Screenshots and user testing give us a first glimpse at Motorola’s new user interface overlayed on top of Google’s Holo UX from Android 4.0. The lockscreen maintains shortcuts to four different applications, as well as a sound switch at the top. Motorola’s replaced the Ice Cream Sandwich camera interface with one of their own. They’ve replaced all of the Holo icons with those from Blur, but didn’t mess with the Android 4.0 launcher home-screens. Other notable improvements include a 3.0.8 Linux kernel.
