Motorola Offers Update On Jelly Bean Upgrade Plans

As Motorola users are all too aware, while the company does an admirable job of trying to let users know about the Android update situation for each of its models, it has a nasty habit of going back on previous plans to bring updates to certain models. As such, whenever the company gets around to updating that list, we find ourselves walking on eggshells. So, what’s the news today?

This update focuses on plans for Jelly Bean upgrades. To that end, Motorola lists a dozen models that it currently plans to bring Android 4.1 to. Some of the devices listed have ETAs attached to them; the three new Droid RAZR models to launch this fall should be getting Jelly Bean before the end of the year. The WiFi-only Xoom tablet may already have Jelly Bean, but the cellular-enabled version should also be seeing its Android 4.1 update arrive before 2013 rolls around.

Motorola also confirms that Jelly Bean’s in the works for a number of additional phones, though it doesn’t yet have a schedule to share for when the updates might become available. These models include the original two Droid RAZRs, the Atrix HD, Photon Q, Electrify 2, Droid 4, and the Droid Bionic.

If your Motorola handset isn’t among any of these, don’t count on seeing an official release of Jelly Bean for your phone from any US carrier. For the complete list, check out the source link below.
