Jelly Bean updates coming to Motorola XOOM, RAZR I and RAZR HD in 2013
Motorola has had a long haul to get its Android-sporting smartphones up to date with the latest version of the Android OS and today the company has announced the next batch of phones to get the latest Jelly Bean operating system.
For our American cousins the company has announced that that they will be bringing the 4.1 Jelly Bean update to the Motorola Atrix HD before the end of the year, and then early in 2013 they will be dropping Jelly Bean on both versions of the Xoom tablet.
Additionally, Canadians will be getting the Atrix X and RAZR HD updates in early 2013.
For us Europeans, the Motorola RAZR I is looking set to get the upgrade to Jelly Bean at the start of 2013 and the RAZR HD should be getting its update in the next few weeks of December:
The full European update schedule looks like this:
- MOTOROLA RAZR (XT910) – ICS (Android 4.0.4) rollouts began in Q3 2012. Will be upgraded to Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) for select countries and carriers
- MOTOROLA RAZR MAXX (XT910) – ICS (Android 4.0.4) rollouts began in Q3 2012. Will be upgraded to Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) for select countries and carriers
- MOTOROLA RAZR i (XT890) – Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) upgrade to begin in Q1 2013
- MOTOROLA RAZR HD (XT925) – Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) rollout began in Dec. 2012
- MOTOROLA XOOM 2 (MZ616) – ICS (Android 4.0.4) rollout began in Sept. 2012
- MOTOROLA XOOM 2 Media Edition (MZ607) – ICS (Android 4.0.4) rollout began in Oct. 2012
- MOTOROLA XOOM Wi-Fi Only (MZ604) – ICS Upgrade (Android 4.0.4) rollout began in June 2012 for select countries and carriers
- MOTOROLA XOOM Wi-Fi + 3G (MZ601) – ICS Upgrade (Android 4.0.4) rollout began in June 2012 for select countries and carriers
As you can see, the Xoom roll out of Jelly Bean is still unlisted in Europe but hopefully with a successful port to the American and Canadian tablets out ther, Moto should bring it to Europeans soon.
Motorola has been very slow with their updates to handsets, angering many users, as with their comparatively small range of handsets many feel they should not be taking so long to make new software work on their capable handsets.
