UPDATE: Check out our new upgrade page featuring the latest news on Android software upgrades around the world at moto.ly/upgrade
At the new Motorola, we’re focused on making fewer, bigger bets that will redefine the mobile experience for our users. And one of our top priorities is delivering great software upgrades. To that end, we’d like to share with you our latest developments:
DROID RAZR M BY MOTOROLA gets Android 4.1™ Jelly Bean
We’re excited to announce that DROID RAZR M is getting upgraded to Android™ 4.1 Jelly Bean. Starting today, the upgrade will be rolled out to users in phases. Jelly Bean includes a number of fantastic new and improved features, including Google Now, Voice Search, and improved notifications. Check out Motorola.com/jellybean to learn more.
Looking ahead: software upgrades will be available for preview
We know it’s important for many of you to get the latest Android software upgrades onto your phones as quickly as possible. With that in mind, we’re also introducing Test Drive, a new program that will allow consumers to take our major software upgrades for a trial run and provide valuable feedback before we launch the upgrade publicly. Starting with Android 4.2, the next iteration of Jelly Bean, we will release a preview of our software to a few hundred consumers that sign up for Test Drive. More details on how to sign-up and participate will be announced on the blog soon.
Going forward, we are going to focus our efforts so that we can deliver consistently high quality experiences to our users. Unfortunately that means not all phones will be getting upgrades. If you own a device that’s not getting upgraded, we’ve created the Motorola trade up program. The trade up program gives you $100 back on a new Motorola smartphone when you trade-in your old one–so you don’t have to miss out on Jelly Bean. For qualifying devices and more details, check out Motorola.com/tradeup.
Clearly, there’s a lot going on at Motorola, and we have no intention of slowing down any time soon. DROID RAZR M is only the first of many devices to get Jelly Bean (the full schedule is here). We’re a new company with a new approach, and a big part of how we’ll do business going forward is to keep our customers in the loop. You can always reach out to us on Google+ as well as our other social media channels with questions or feedback.
