Whenever Google releases a new version, or major update, to Android one of the most common questions for owners of existing phones is whether their device will ever benefit. Owners of the Motorola DROID devices from 2012, the DROID RAZR HD, DROID RAZR M, and DROID RAZR MAXX HD has some reason to be concerned when Android 4.4 KitKat was released last fall as their devices were already “old” in terms of smartphones. They probably breathed a sigh of relief when Motorola announced they would make KitKat available for their devices at some point. After months of no updates though, some were questioning whether Motorola was really committed to the effort to make KitKat available for their devices. The good news for most, if not all, of these owners is that David Schuster with Motorola posted over the weekend that the update was only “a few more weeks” away.
In his post on Google+, Schuster indicates the team has made “great progress” in preparing KitKat for the “2012 DROID family” of devices. He does list the RAZR HD and RAZR M specifically, but left off the RAZR MAXX HD. Hopefully leaving off specific mention of that third device was merely an oversight. Schuster indicates the version to be released will be Android 4.4.2.
In a response to some questions, Schuster also reported work in continuing on Android 4.4.x for the 2013 DROID devices. However, the team has been dealing with “a number of different and unfortunately changing requirements.” He does think the challenges are behind the team at this point, so those devices appear to be on track to get an upgrade in “a few more weeks” as well.
