Back in March, we heard from AT&T about its Ice Cream Sandwich update plans for Androids from a number of manufacturers. On that list was Motorola’s Atrix 4G. Motorola released its own chart showing the ICS update status for a number of its handsets, and the company reiterated those plans to bring Android 4.0 to the Atrix 4G. Now, however, Motorola has modified that list, and the Atrix, along with some other handsets, are no longer tapped for ICS. What happened?

Comparing the current list, updated today, to previous incarnations, we can see a number of phones where Motorola has changed its mind about Ice Cream Sandwich. This isn’t just models that were marked as “in Evaluation & Planning”, like the Electrify, but ones where Motorola had already committed to releasing ICS, like the Atrix 4G and the Photon 4G.

Considering how we’re talking about hardware with a gigabyte of RAM, not to mention dual-core SoCs, it’s hard to understand why Motorola has switched gears like this. Could Webtop be getting in the way on these older phones? We don’t know just yet, but considering how long owners of this hardware have been strung along, Motorola sure owes them some kind of explanation.
