Motorola has revised its software upgrade timetable yet again, this time denoting specific devices that will be updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Surprisingly, the list is larger than we had anticipated. The chart indicates that every device released after the Droid Bionic will receive a taste of Jelly Bean. This leaves the following devices eligible for the firmware upgrade:

  • DROID RAZR M
  • DROID RAZR HD
  • DROID RAZR MAXX HD
  • ATRIX HD (MB866)
  • PHOTON Q
  • ELECTRIFY 2
  • DROID RAZR
  • DROID RAZR MAXX
  • DROID 4
  • DROID BIONIC
  • MOTOROLA XOOM WiFi-Only
  • MOTOROLA XOOM WiFi + 3G/LTE

 

Considering Motorola’s disappointing history with software updates, it would probably be wise to take the above information with a rather large grain of salt. As always, Motorola says it’s still evaluating things and updates are subject to change. Head past the break for Motorola’s full list of currently planned US software updates.

    This is why I will NEVER buy a Motorola device. Look at these time tables… Even their best phone the Droid Razr Maxx says before 2013. Meanwhile on my GS3 I have 4.1 now. Things like this make me understand why some people are hesitant to accept Android. I would say this is laughable, but it is beyond a laughing matter anymore. Google is only hurting itself by allowing manufacturers carrier dictate when users receive the latest OS milestone.

      I wholeheartedly agree. My Atrix 4G is the last Moto phone I buy. So pathetic

  • Sam

    Hmm is this just for American carriers, where’s the Razr i?

  • swtrainer

    Don’t believe anything Motorola says…THEY LIE! Just ask any Motorola Atrix 4G owner who waited a agonizingly long time for the ICS upgrade that was promised only to be told that Motorola changed their mind and that the ICS upgrade would not be available for the Atrix 4G. LIARS!
