We were pretty surprised when the Motorola Droid Razr M, Droid Razr HD and Droid Razr Maxx HD touched down with Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) inside.
Now that Motorola has addressed that particular shortcoming with some sweet Jelly Bean (Android 4.1), the US manufacturer is turning its attention to the rest of its swollen Android range.
Of course, Motorola’s Jelly Bean schedule update is predominantly of interest to consumers in the states, but there are still a few applicable handsets for us Europeans.
We’re told that the Motorola Razr and Razr Maxx (updated to Ice Cream Sandwich in Q3) will see Jelly Bean at some point, but only “for select countries and carriers”.
Meanwhile, the Motorola Razr i, one of a tiny handful of Intel-powered smartphones, will be upgraded to Jelly Bean in Q1 2013. That’s pretty vague; could be January 1 or March 31. Just saying.
Finally, the European Motorola Xoom tablets haven’t yet been given the “Will remain on ICS” death sentence (as is the case for some models in particular territories), so there’s still a modicum of hope there.
