AT&T's Motorola Atrix 2 get the ICS update, for real this time

A month ago we told you that AT&T’s Motorola Atrix 2 is finally getting its serving of Ice Cream Sandwich. That, however, was just an announcement and those of you with Moto’s smartphone had to wait for 30+ days to get the new goodies included in Android 4.0. Here’s what you’ll get:

  • Browser now has improved page loading, tabbed browsing, offline reading and desktop mode.
  • New lock/unlock features such as the ability to unlock directly to the camera, text messaging, phone dialer, home screen or use Face Unlock.
  • Support for home screen folders by dragging one app icon onto another.
  • Swipe away notifications bar.
  • Contacts app is replaced with the new People app that pulls together a large profile picture, phone number and status updates in one location.
  • Data usage monitoring.

To updated your Atrix 2, connect to a fast Wi-Fi hotspot, go to Settings -> About phone -> System updates and take it from there. Make sure your battery if fully charged to have enough juice to complete the process…
