Motorola devices get Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update in Q1 2013

by: Varun RajJanuary 2, 2013


Motorola has announced that it will continue to provide Jelly Bean updates in the first quarter of 2013. The company has updated its “Software Upgrade New” page with new info that will be of very much interest for Motorola device owners.

On the upgrade page Motorola has added new devices that will receive the Jelly Bean update in the following months. These devices include the Electrify M XT901 (U.S. Cellular), Canadian RAZR HD XT925, Australian RAZR M, and European RAZR i XT890. The specific release dates haven’t been revealed, so we will have to wait for that info to become available.

The company has recently released Android 4.1 for the Atrix HD and rolled out Jelly Bean for its RAZR M and RAZR HD smartphones in November. The RAZR MAXX and DROID RAZR also received updates in December.

While it is nice to see new devices getting added on the software upgrade list, it is somewhat disappointing that Motorola has added only four devices. We hope that more devices will be added in the coming months including the PHOTON Q, Droid 4, Droid Bionic and several others.

    The RAZR Maxx and RAZR did not officially receive updates in December, that was apparently a mistake. We’re still waiting for the real update.

    The Jelly Bean Update for the RAZR and RAZR Maxx was pulled almost as soon as it was released. Sloppy reporting, my friend.

    • wooooo

  • There came no update for the Razr Maxx in December, were to update that this month. Let’s wait and see what the now.

    Who ever wrote this is pretty uniformed. The update was pulled back in before it could even get to most devices. And the ones that did have had a lot of problems. Verizon didn’t even want to send it out because of the bugs and problems but someone at Motorola pushed it without them knowing and Verizon ended the update to just about everyone.

    Looks like I’m stuck with my Bionic for a while, so I’m glad I’m getting updates.
