At Motorola’s On Display event in New York today, CEO Dennis Woodside announced that the company was committed to Android and would roll out upgrades to the latest version of the platform, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, “very soon”.
The new Motorola Droid Razr family that was unveiled at the event will get the update by the end of the year.
Jelly Bean will roll out to other devices when and if possible. He stated that some devices would not run optimally with the latest version of Android, and so, to soften the blow, Motorola would offer $100 credit towards one of its new releases. Customers who take them up on the offer will be able to choose from the Motorola Droid Razr HD, the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD, and the Motorola Droid Razr M.
It’s not clear exactly how you claim the credit or when it will be available, but we’ll keep you posted as details emerge. The Droid Razr M will be available next week and the Razr HD and Maxx HD will follow before the holidays.
