Android Jelly Bean updates for Verizon’s Motorola Droid Razr HD and Razr Maxx HD rolling out now
Motorola has announced that Verizon’s Droid Razr HD and Droid Razr Maxx HD are getting Android 4.1 Jelly Bean updates starting today (December 3) – not long after we told you that the updates were imminent.
As always, the updates are being rolled-out in phases, so you might not see a notification on your Razr HD / Razr Maxx HD right away. Mind you, the updates bring Android Jelly Bean version 4.1, not 4.2. Still, you will get a ton of new stuff, including richer notifications, Google Now, and enhanced Google Voice Search – which Motorola demonstrates is faster than Apple’s Siri (see the video embedded below).

In mid November, Verizon and Motorola have also updated the Droid Razr M to Android Jelly Bean. It’s a bit weird that the updates for the Razr HD and Razr Maxx HD are coming only now – since these two are flagship handsets, while the Razr M is not. But it’s better late than never, right?
Verizon is selling the Motorola Droid Razr HD for $199.99 on contract, and the Droid Razr Maxx HD for $299.99. The Droid Razr M costs only $49.99 on contract.
