Owners of the new Motorola Droid RAZR HD and Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX HD should be next in line to receive Jelly Bean from Motorola and Verizon now that the Motorola Droid RAZR M Jelly Bean update is on the verge of rolling out. And because it’s on the verge of rolling out, those who may have been thinking that Motorola wouldn’t stick to its 2012 roll out timeline can stop panicking.
Today, it became clear that the Motorola Droid RAZR M would be getting its Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update in just a couple of days. Motorola approved the update and that means that it should be rolling out soon. And that only means good things for Droid RAZR HD and Droid RAZR MAXX HD owners who are waiting patiently for Motorola to roll out the update.
The Droid RAZR M launched before those two and it makes sense that it would get the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update first. However, that’s not important. What’s important is that Motorola has been able to stick to its schedule and get the Droid RAZR M update out in an extremely quick manner. The device only launched a mere six weeks ago.
So, it’s clear that this new Motorola is trying to set a new precedent for Android updates moving forward, starting with the Droid RAZR M and likely extending to the Droid RAZR HD and Droid RAZR HD MAXX which were also promised Android 4.1 Jelly Bean at their launch event.

There is currently no rumored release window other than 2012 for these updates but given that the Droid RAZR M will see its update arrive about six weeks after its release, it’s clear that Motorola is hard at work on its Jelly Bean releases.
We’ve already seen the Droid RAZR HD Jelly Bean update leak out once so it’s clear that they are in the works and at this point, owners should rest easy knowing that the software will likely arrive in 2012 as promised.
So look for things to materialize in the next few weeks for these updates. And if Motorola follows a similar path to the one it took with the Droid M, things should really start heating up around the end of November and early December.
Motorola and Verizon want to make these as attractive as possible to the Black Friday crowds and Jelly Bean would certainly help.
