Although Motorola only (vaguely) talked about the Razr HD’s US availability at the phone’s unveiling event, it was obvious that it was only a matter of time before we started hearing about it hitting other…
Show of hands, who’s disappointed with Motorola’s progress (or lack thereof) on Jelly Bean updates? Now that’s a lot of hands!
Still, even if Moto basically only upgraded a tablet and a phone to Android 4.1 and not even the Xoom to 4.2, you can’t say that Samsung or anyone else did a much better job. Furthermore, we’ve always had the feeling that Razr HD’s JB leap is just around the corner, and now we’ve started to hear official word on that.
Rogers Canada just updated its “OS upgrades” schedule, and what do you know, the Razr HD is slated to get Jelly Bean 4.1 in “late December”. That’s only a tentative date, so anything can happen until then, but there’s a very good shot that Santa Claus will be bringing Canadians something other than candy in their stockings this year.
And if Rogers customers will be spoiled like that, there’s no reason to think Verizon will not follow suite or even undercut that ETA, so Droid Razr HD users, but also owners of the Maxx HD should start to get excited.
A trio of Samsung devices also has Jelly Bean coming on Rogers, with the S3 LTE scheduled for late November and the S2 LTE/Galaxy Note duo for late December. That’s not news however, and, considering Sammy’s recent track history, is not to be trusted very much either.
