Motorola confirms Jelly Bean update for Droid Razr and Razr Maxx coming in Q1 2013

Didn't get any Jelly Bean surprise last Christmas? You don't have to wait for too long, as Motorola has confirmed that the Android 4.1 update will come to the two phones in Q1 2013.
January 4, 2013

Some lucky owners of the Droid Razr and Razr Maxx received an early Jelly Bean surprise from Verizon last Christmas, while the rest are still waiting for the non-buggy update to hit their device.

As per Motorola’s software upgrade schedule, we know that Jelly Bean is guaranteed to come to the two handsets this year. Now, we’re hearing that Moto will roll out the Android 4.1 software update for the Droid Razr and Droid Razr Maxx in Q1 2013.

The confirmation was posted on Moto’s Facebook page. It’s not as specific as we’re sure some would like, but it’s better than the previous timeline. We do hope that the update will come early in the quarter and not at the end of March.

If you don’t want to wait that long, you can always make the jump manually, though be warned that the Jelly Bean ROM that folks were getting last week is apparently still full of bugs.
