The new ownership relationship with Google by Motorloa should mean faster updates and that's what the Motorola Twitter feed is showing.
Motorola has already comitted to updating some smartphones and tablets to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS).
According to the Motorola on Twitter, "We'll be releasing devices for ICS 6 weeks after Google releases the final version of it."
Motorola also Tweeted, "DROID RAZR, BIONIC & XOOM will get ICS. Within 6 weeks of Google's public push, we'll confirm other devices to get ICS."
Android updates previously for Motorola Droid smartphones and tablets were not as swift with some taking months. Most of the delay usually is caused by carrier integration as well as added-on UI features by the Motorola. Now that Motorola is owned by Google, it appears the integration and updates will be faster at least for their premier models.
HTC, yesterday, confirmed that they will HTC will determine which Android smartphones will get the update according to the hardware, performance and usability.
