Motorola US Android 4.0 upgrades unlikely until Q3 2012

Motorola's Ice Cream Sandwich updates for existing devices won't reach US phones and tablets until sometime in Q3 2012, the company has confirmed, with Android 4.0 still mired in planning and evaluation for most eligible models.

Google Search app update brings older Androids up to ICS speed

Google can't force Android device manufacturers to roll out phone upgrades more quickly, but what it can do is tweak its official apps so as to give users the most up to date experience possible.
