Motorola Mobility last month confirmed that most of its 2011 smartphones would be upgraded to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Those that would not be would instead be eligible in the U.S. for a US$100 credit towards a new Motorola smartphone. The company has now updated its upgrade lists to indicate which devices will be upgraded and which will not.
First up, the devices that will receive the upgrade include the recently announced DROID RAZR M, RAZR HD, and RAZR Maxx HD which will all be upgraded by the end of the year. The ATRIX HD, Photon Q, Eletrify 2, DROID RAZR, DROID RAZR MAXX, DROID 4, and DROID Bionic will also be upgraded but timelines are not provided.
With Motorola having changed its mind on a few devices already, it still leaves the door open to additional ones with the warning that “all dates and status subject to change.”
A total of 13 devices will not be upgraded and will be eligible for the rebate. Among those are the Atrix 4G, Atrix 2, Photon 4G, DROID 3, Milestone 3, and others. The rebate can be applied towards the purchase of a ATRIX HD, DROID RAZR HD, DROID RAZR M, DROID RAZR MAXX HD, MOTOROLA ELECTRIFY 2, Electrify 2, or Photon Q.
The $100 rebate offer is not available in Canada at this time but Motorola is “working to expand the program to additional markets and will provide more details when they are available.” We’ll let you if it makes it up here.
