The Android Central reports the update has been reportedly pushed out "to select users" which is expected to be made available broadly in "the coming week." Motorola posted about the ICS update on its European Facebook page, according to reports.

The ICS update for Razr smartphone will come with a revamped lock screen and launcher along with visual changes. "Apparently, the hold-up was due to T-Mobile refusal to sign off on the update because they wanted to customise the ROM on the phone to their liking, something that Google did not allow as Motorola is now owned by Google," explains GSMArena. "Eventually T-Mobile relented and signed the update so now everyone can get their hands on it," site claims.

According to GSMArena, a photo of the update suggests that the update weighs about 153.3MB and users are advised to download it via 3G or Wi-Fi connectivity. Users can manually check for the ICS update by heading to Settings > About phone.
