By - Source: Motorola | B 8 comments

Motorola Atrix HD set to receive Android 4.1 this month.

Motorola has detailed which of its smartphones will receive Android's Jelly Bean update. The Motorola Droid Razr HD and Droid Razr Maxx HD are the latest handsets to receive the Android 4.1 update, while the Atrix HD is set to receive the update later this month.

During Q1 2013, the Electrify M and both versions of the Xoom tablet, which is the first-ever Honeycomb tablet to launch in the market, will receive the update. Other Motorola devices scheduled to receive an update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean in 2013 include the Razr, Razr Maxx, Droid 4, Droid Bionic, Photon Q and Electrify 2.

During the last two weeks of October, Google revealed that a quarter of all Android-powered devices have Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich installed, while 4.1 Jelly Bean was installed on just 2.7 percent of devices.

    Awesome JB for my Bionic, although if it takes as long as ICS took I will be waiting forever.

    unlikely, since they go alphabetically with the android version naming convention. C was Cupcake so its gonna be a long wait till they come back to C (if they ever do)

    ... and in December, Google revealed that Jelly Bean was 6.7% of the market, Ice Cream Sandwich was 27.5%, Gingerbread was 50.8%, and Froyo was 10.3%.

    Motorola is awful. They sign onto the Android Update Alliance, to provide updates for 18 months from the release of their phone, on May 10th, 2011. They had just released the Atrix 4G on February 22, 2011. Ice Cream Sandwich comes out 6 months later, on November 14th, 2011.

    1 Year Later, this buffoon tells us to piss off, we're not getting an update.

    I had the original Motorola Xoom and got so tired of waiting for the ICS update I gave it to my best mate and bought a Nexus 7!

    Ironically the update came out 2 weeks later (damn you). Now I'm stuck with a slow, glitchy device with an aspect ratio only fit for video (which can hardly play 720p YouTube videos), and a screen so small I've had to buy glasses!

    What about it? Last I checked it's a Samsung phone and most carriers already have it updated to JB.
