Motorola Jelly Bean schedule updated

Motorola Jelly Bean schedule updatedWe 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.

Patiently awaiting a Jelly Bean update? Fancy teasing your taste buds in the meantime? Check out Everything you need to know about Jelly Bean.

grrrrrr, I've gone from Motorola fanboy, to thinking Motorola could pull it back, to Motorola being crap.

My Atrix 2 looks like it's destined to stay on ICS. Which it only got in around august thanks to me buying the unbranded one.

Don't expect them to actually deliver on these promises, though.

It's not. Project Butter is what Android has needed for years, it finally kills off the typical Android lag.

That's something that always gets me in android, I remember using 2.2 on a phone with a live wallpaper. It was the smoothest live wallpaper ever. I then dragged up the menu and LAG LAG LAG. And yet the live wallpaper was still running in the background as smooth as butter.
