Too little and too late.

Motorola’s David Schuster announced on his Google+ page that announced software upgrades for Verizon’s DROID Ultra, DROID Mini and DROID Maxx have been cancelled. So, instead of Android Lollipop, they will stay on Android 4.4.4 KitKat. The Droid Mini started on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean while the Ultra and Maxx debuted with 4.2.2.

Schuster was in full apology mode.

We apologize that we will not be upgrading DROID Ultra/Mini/Maxx to Android Lollipop, as we had hoped. We know how important software upgrades are to our customers, and we’re very sorry that we are unable to provide the upgrade.

In an effort to ameliorate the update dupe, Schuster directed users of those three phones to a page where they can apply for a $100 discount on the current DROID Turbo 2 and $50 off the current DROID Maxx 2. The offer’s up and over with on May 19 and whatever promo codes are given out will expire on June 2.

Maybe the DROID Turbo 2 will get Marshmallow. Maybe.
