Motorola has revealed that the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Motorola RAZR will be pushed out OTA at the beginning of 2012.

The Motorola RAZR was announced on Tuesday at a New York event for the Verizon network in the US, before the European announcement was made on Wednesday in Berlin.

Having introduced the new Android superphone to assembled European journalists, Alain Mutricy, senior vice president portfolio and product management, candidly referred to Google's Hong Kong announcement in which Ice Cream Sandwich was launched. 

Mutricy highlighted that although the Motorola RAZR had been designed for, and will be launching on, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, it has a plan in place to update the phone to Ice Cream Sandwich at the "start of 2012".

Mutricy highlighted that the move to ICS would incorporate all of the innovation that has gone into the new RAZR handset and a more precise date would be given in the future.

It's a little vague at the moment, but at least Motorola has made this commitment to update its new "sexy RAZR". 

The Motorola RAZR will be launching in the UK in November 2012, confirmed for the O2 network. Online retailer Clove has already said that the Motorola RAZR UK release is the 1 November.
