As expected, the Motorola Droid RAZR M Jelly Bean update has been approved which means that the update should be rolling out to users of the Droid RAZR M in just a couple of days.
Droid-Life is reporting that the carrier has approved the update, shortly after soak test invites went out to owners of the Droid RAZR M. While this does mean that a Jelly Bean update should be rolling out soon, it doesn’t guarantee that it will happen over night. The update should just now be rolling out to soak testers and if everything goes according to plan, owners should expect the official update to roll out in the next week or so.
This is how Motorola and Verizon generally handle updates. They approve them, it goes out to initial testers with or without an official announcement and then it rolls out to the masses. In this case, the Droid RAZR M masses.
So while exciting, Droid RAZR M owners shouldn’t be checking the phone every five minutes for the update as it should be a few days before it arrives. And when it does, owners of Verizon’s budget Droid should be elated.
That’s because Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is a huge upgrade over the current operating system, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean may not be the latest OS from Google, that honor belongs to Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, but that doesn’t mean it’s lacking in features.
Android 4.1 will be bringing Google Now, enhanced Notifications, widgets that automatically re-size, an improved Camera app, better voice search and an improved user interface that is faster and smoother than the previous one.
There are also a host of fixes coming with the update including fixes for the power button, audio settings, contacts and more. All of the fixes should help to make the Droid M experience a much better one.
Now that this is out, the Droid RAZR HD and Droid RAZR MAXX HD Jelly Bean updates will be next in line from Motorola and Verizon.
