Motorola has revised its software upgrade timetable yet again, this time denoting specific devices that will be updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Surprisingly, the list is larger than we had anticipated. The chart indicates that every device released after the Droid Bionic will receive a taste of Jelly Bean.
At Verizon Wireless, only the Galaxy Nexus runs Jelly Bean. Eight other phones ship with ICS: Motorola's Droid Razr M, Droid 4 and Droid Razr Maxx; Samsung's Galaxy S III and Galaxy Stellar; HTC's Rezound and Droid Incredible 4G LTE; LG's Intuition; and the Pantech Marauder. Verizon says it will ship Jelly Bean for the Razr M by the end of the year and, later, for the Galaxy S III.
Fed Ex just delivered a package from Motorola, and it was definitely a surprise since I wasn’t expecting a review unit. I knew if wasn’t a device since it was so light, so I opened it right away to find out what it was.
Time for the news that owners of the DROID RAZR HD and MAXX HD have been waiting for: Jelly Bean has been approved for those devices and will begin rolling out in phases beginning next week per news straight from Verizon:
Friday, Nov. 30: DROID RAZR HD and DROID RAZR MAXX HD by Motorola are the next smartphones to be upgraded to Android 4.1, Jelly Bean.
I have a dilemma, I am up for an upgrade and I have decide if the Droid Razr Maxx or the Droid Razr HD Maxx is worth the wait & extra money. I currently have a Droid Bionic so either will be a step up, but I am wondering if anyone has any ideas about this. The only real difference I can find is the pixel number, which is quite significant, but had anyone else heard anything?
Oh boy— if you’re like me and an owner of a premium Motorola device released in the last 12 – 15 months, then this news is for you. Motorola has updated its ICS update timeline for select devices. Within the next month and some change, MOTO devices will begin receiving Android 4.0 with a (MOTO)BLUR topping, starting with the DROID RAZR/RAZR MAXX and the XOOM 3G/4G tablet.
We heard they could be delayed, but it looks like everything is a go because Verizon just announced the DROID RAZR HD and the DROID RAZR HD MAXX will hit stores next Thursday, October 18. The DROID RAZR HD will cost $199 and the DROID RAZR HD MAXX will run you $299.
Motorola has formally announced the three newest additions to the DROID RAZR family: the DROID RAZR M, DROID RAZR HD and DROID RAZR MAXX HD smartphones. Each smartphone has unique characteristics and features that aims to set it apart from the rest of the competition.
Never before have we seen such a glorious Christmas present from Verizon, but it appears as though the original Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX are now receiving an over-the-air update to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
