DROID-RAZR-M

When Motorola unveiled the Droid Razr M, the Google-owned company promised that an upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is guaranteed for the handset. Despite the assurance, it’s understandable that owners of the phone are more than prepared for a long wait, given Motorola’s rather patchy record of providing a timely software update for its devices. It looks like the skeptics might be proven wrong, since the Jelly Bean firmware for the Droid Razr M has leaked online a month after the phone was released.

Following the release of Android 4.1.2 JZ054K factory images for the Nexus 7, as well as for the “takju” and “yakju” variant of Galaxy Nexus a few days ago, Google has posted the factory image for the updated pure Jelly Bean firmware for the “soju” variant of the Nexus S. The Nexus Q also gets its first factory image released.

A new Jelly Bean update is rolling out to lucky Nexus 7 owners, starting today. Android 4.1.2 is an incremental upgrade, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t important. Most of the changes have to do with bug fixes that improve stability and speed. There is also finally a way to move beyond portrait mode with the Nexus 7.

A few days ago we told you that not all Galaxy Note 2 units that are already in stores come with the multi-windows feature available on Samsung’s 2012 Note devices. However, we suspected that a future firmware update will bring the feature to the second-generation phablet and it looks like European Galaxy Note 2 buyers already have access to such features.
