Back in September when Motorola announced their new lineup of RAZR smartphones, they also mentioned that not all devices would see updates to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. That isn’t all either. Motorola also confirmed that they’ll be offering a “trade up” promotion where select users can get $100 back while upgrading to a new phone at the same time. Today we have the details.
Today Motorola has posted a list of what devices won’t be updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean — and essentially what devices will. Showing that the DROID 4, Bionic and a few others will see the update but that’s about it. The image below is what’s being posted over at the Motorola Blog.
So what exactly does it mean? If you own one of the devices in that left column, it won’t be getting upgraded past Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich — if it even has it to begin with. Those devices will not see Jelly Bean and since Motorola is committed to supplying the latest and greatest to their customers if you happen to own one, if you purchase a new RAZR HD or anything from the right column they’ll give you $100.
Motorola states that their new trade up offer is currently only available in the US, but they plan to roll this out to other counties “over time” but doesn’t state any other details. Obviously this won’t help for users still in contract with Verizon or whoever else. This is only for those that are ready to update. If you’d like to trade up and get that cash back head to Motorola’s Trade Up site. Check out reviews of all those new devices available for trade up from the links below.
