Razr HD LTE-2

Since the arrival of Jelly Bean on the Motorola Droid Razr HD in the States earlier in the month, those who own the non-Droid variant of the phone in Australia have been waiting for the good news to travel south of the equator. It looks like you’ll be getting what you wish for a few weeks before Christmas comes.

When Google bought Motorola it was hoped that Google would turn the handset and tablet manufacturer into a shining example of how Android can be used in its stock, unaltered flavor and how a smartphone manufacturer should support its customers in terms of updates and upgrades. However, so far, that hasn’t been true.

A good example is the RAZR M and RAZR HD phones which Motorola distribute via Verizon. These phones don’t ship with Android 4.1, the latest and greatest released version of Android and nor do they come with a pure, unadulterated version. Instead owners of these new phones get Android 4.0 with a Verizon skin and extra Verizon software.
