Meet the latest devices to update to Android Jelly Bean 4.1. The DROID RAZR and the RAZR MAXX users have waited for so long to be updated to Jelly Bean and although it hasn't happened yet, at least a formal announcement have already been made by Motorola.
Although many devices have already upgraded to Jelly Bean and have reported awesome enhancements and additional features such as Google Now, camera and notification features, among others, owners of these Motorola devices will surely find Android Beam and near field communication technology (NFC) to be useful when exchanging information.
These are only some of the things that Jelly Bean can bring about on a DROID RAZR or a RAZR MAXX phone. Perhaps the best news is that although Motorola was a bit late on providing update, it hasn't completely forgotten to upgrade and have kept these devices alive. Now, the only thing left to be worried about is how long it will take to actually "roll-out" the Jelly Bean.
The Jelly Bean update roll out for the intel-powered Motorola RAZR I have begun. The first country to get the update notifications is France even though the smartphone was first launched in the UK.
All the usual goodies associated with Jelly bean are on hand including some new improvements to the custom Motorola launcher conveyed to you through the new firmware, version 4.1.2
You are much better off downloading the software over Wi-Fi but you can also use network data if you desire due to a file size of 300 MB. There is an automatic popup on your notification screen but you can check for it manually via the about screen on your settings menu.
The availability of the release should extend to other countries within the next few days or weeks at the most.
