Motorola Droid Razr HD, Maxx HD to Receive Android 4.1

Verizon has confirmed that Motorola Droid Razr HD and Droid Razr Maxx HD users will be offered the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update next week.

Both smartphones created by Google-owned Motorola will see Jelly Bean become the new operating system, which delivers Google Now, an improved keyboard and enhanced notifications.

Verizon is utilizing the update to carry out several carrier-specific changes to the Motorola pair. The Verizon Video app and Color app will no longer be present, which will instead be replaced by a new Video calling portal and Accessories app.

The Droid Razr HD and Droid Razr Maxx HD will also receive the full suite of Amazon apps, including Kindle, Amazon MP3, IMDb, Audible and Zappos.

Verizon said the Jelly Bean update will go live in phases next week and will take around 10 to 15 minutes to download and install. Users can manually check for the 276MB update by going to their Motorola handset to Menu > Settings > About phone > System updates > Download.

A support page provided by Verizon depicts the benefits and procedures for the forthcoming update.

    We also receive the full Amazon Suite? My app drawer is already jammed with useless apps that I can't uninstall.

    The bloatware is meant to be, natural, and simple to be ignored. It seems to have no impact on my use of my S3

    Otacon, buy a Nexus device and get straight up Google with no bloatware.
