Motorola DROID RAZR M Getting Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Now

November 9, 2012 - Written By Alexander Maxham

When Motorola announced the new DROID RAZR’s back in September, and it was coming with Android 4.0 – Ice Cream Sandwich and that it was “Android 4.1 upgrade-able  that we wouldn’t see it for quite a while. But actually about 2 months later, Android 4.1 – Jelly Bean is rolling out to the mid-range Verizon device. That’s fast for Motorola and even faster for Verizon. It took Verizon longer to push out Android 4.1 on the Galaxy Nexus, and that was a freaking Nexus device.

The DROID RAZR M update brings all kind of Jelly Bean goodies including:

  • Google Now
  • Project Butter
  • Expandable notifications
  • And more!

The DROID RAZR M is now the second Verizon device to get Android 4.1, and the first non-Nexus on big red. Looks like the DROID RAZR HD and DROID RAZR MAXX HD are next on the list. Now if this is a new Motorola I can get behind. How about you?

If you’re a DROID RAZR M owner, go ahead and check for updates (Settings > About Phone > Check for Updates) and pull down the update. It is rolling out in waves so it may be a day or longer before you can get some Jelly Bean. Enjoy!
