Motorola Releases Plans For Updating It’s Devices To JellyBean 4.1

The most annoying thing about Android without a doubt has been the fact that if we as customers do not get devices running Vanilla Android which means Nexus devices, then we usually have to wait a long time to get updates to the latest Android version. And this delay becomes a lot more if your device is locked to a particular career. While the Nexus 7 is happily rocking the Android Version 4.2 a lot of devices are still looking forward to getting the first update to Android 4.1 JellyBean. And Motorola have been notorious for taking way too much time for rolling out these updates, which is surprising given that they are now owned by Google themselves.

However, Motorola have released their schedule as to when they plan to update their present range of devices to JellyBean 4.1. The surprising thing though in this schedule is the fact that plenty of these devices have not even been updated to ICS which is really sad given that ICS was launched by Google about over an year ago now. Devices such as Xoom 2 may not even get the update to 4.1 if you are in Asia Pacific, which is a pity given it is the flagship tablet of Motorola in the market currently. The entire schedule is as follows where you can check your devices according to the region. Motorola have also announced that in case your device is not listed here, then it is slated not to receive any further support.
