Motorola’s finally coming clean and revealing their anticipated Jelly Bean update schedule along with a list of devices that will qualify for their $100 discount program for devices not receiving the Android 4.1 upgrade. When Motorola announced its new DROID RAZR lineup back in September, it stated that any smartphone owner not receiving the Jelly Bean update would be given a $100 discount on new Motorola devices.
Motorola’s list reveals that the Atrix 4G, Atrix 2, DROID 3, DROID X2, Motorola Admiral and the rest of the devices listed in the image below all qualify for the $100 trade up program. In order to qualify for the program, you must own one of the devices not receiving Android 4.1 and purchase one of the following: ATRIX HD, DROID RAZR M, DROID RAZR HD, DROID RAZR MAXX HD, Motorola Electrify 2 or Motorola Photon Q. The discount itself is provided in the form of a Verizon Wireless gift card, Motorola Visa Prepaid card, or carrier credit.
Separately, Motorola’s updated list indicates the DROID RAZR M, RAZR HD and RAZR MAXX HD will all receive Jelly Bean by the end of the year. Also included in the Jelly Bean rollout are the original DROID RAZR and DROID 4, though no timeframe is offered for those devices.
Motorola is clearly working to solidify its Android upgrade schedule and seems to have done exactly that with this new list but of course is leaving itself a little room by saying “All dates and status subject to change.”
So, now that we’re supposedly settled with Motorola’s Jelly Bean rollout, how do you feel?
