Motorola DROID X2 will reportedly not be seeing update to Ice Cream Sandwich

When Motorola released their first list of devices that were being planned for an upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the successor to the original DROID X was listed as being in the “in evaluation and planning” stage, with plenty of other devices. However, when Verizon released their own updated list of devices that would be getting the software update, the DROID X2 wasn’t present. It had plenty of people assuming that something was going on, and now it may have been confirmed that the device won’t be getting the update after all.

A letter has been revealed by Droid-Life, which is reportedly a response to one of their readers. The reader, Ivan (assumed named, from the letter), apparently reported Motorola to the Better Business Bureau (BBB) due to their update practices, and that pesky locked boot loader situation. Motorola apparently responded, with one Dorothy Hodges of the Corporate Consumer Advocacy Office, setting the record straight as best she could. Basically, it boils down to the fact that the DROID X2 won’t be getting upgraded to the latest version of Android. Oh, and boot loaders are unlocked when carriers allow it.

You can head through the source link below to check out the full letter. Tough luck for DROID X2 owners who were expecting to see ICS officially from Motorola, if this turns out to be true.
