Motorola has started to notify members of their Feedback Network that a software update will be made available in the morning to the DROID RAZR and RAZR MAXX. Most assumed this to be Ice Cream Sandwich after seeing information about it in a leaked screenshot from Best Buy, however, the changelog that we just received indicates that it is not. The update rolling out tomorrow will be build 6.12.181 and includes numerous enhancements and bug fixes. We have the full list of goodies below.
