Verizon Motorola Droid Razr and Razr Maxx should get Android Jelly Bean updates this quarter
Verizon’s first two Motorola Droid Razr smartphones – the Razr XT912 (launched in November 2011) and the Razr Maxx (released in January 2012) – are going to be updated to Android Jelly Bean pretty soon. How soon? Well, Motorola is officially saying that both handsets should get JB this quarter – so it has to happen before the end of March.
The Razr and Razr Maxx are no longer available for purchase at Verizon (at least not online) – since you can now buy the new Razr HD and Razr Maxx HD (which have already received Jelly Bean updates).
You can find out more about Moto’s Android upgrade plans here at its official support forums. The site was redesigned recently: before, you could see the updates for all devices in one large list. Now, you first have to choose your location and your carrier, and only then you are able to find out what’s the latest software ready for your device.
Other Motorola devices that are going to receive Android Jelly Bean at some point are the Droid Bionic, Droid 4, and the Xoom LTE tablet. The company has yet to decide if the Xyboard 8.2 and 10.1 tablets will be updated beyond Ice Cream Sandwich.
