So Moto, why isn't the Admiral getting ICS??? [Comparison]
Honestly there's no excuse
for Motorola not to upgrade the Admiral to Ice Cream Sandwich. Sony has ICS running on 2 similar spec phones- Xperia Active and Xperia Tipo. If they can do it, so can Motorola.
Quick summary of similarities and differences:
Why should you care?
- All have 512MB of RAM
- All have similar size screen
- Both Sony's have slower processors
- Both Sony's have much less internal storage space
- 1 Sony was introduced before the Admiral, 1 after
Motorola says it wasn't possible so that you could have a good user experience. However, both of the Sony's are slower and have less memory. Try again Motorola. You just want to sell more of the newest phones, and not support those already out. Sprint is advertising this phone a ton lately since it's the only smartphone compatible with their new Direct Connect PTT, you'd think they'd persuade Motorola to not let it die. This is the 4th time Motorola has given up on Sprint (i1, Titanium, XPRT, now the Admiral).
Here is the breakdown of specs:
