Motorola Droid RAZR HD, Maxx HD to get Android 4.1 update as soon as next week

Motorola Droid RAZR HD / RAZR Maxx HD

Verizon Wireless has announced that the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for its Motorola Droid RAZR HD and Maxx HD smartphones will begin rolling out to users starting next week. The carrier had promised that the update would arrive before the end of the year when it announced the phones back in September, so it's good to see it stick to its promise. The update will be delivered in phases, so not everyone will get it at the same time. In addition to all of the performance updates included with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Verizon says that the update also offers improved voice and data connectivity, better native calendar settings, and updated versions of Verizon's preloaded apps. The now-defunct Color and Verizon Video apps will be removed, though we don't think anyone will miss them. Now that the Android 4.1 update is being delivered, it's time to start the countdown until the Android 4.2 update arrives. Owners of the RAZR HD and Maxx HD should get a notification on their handsets when the update is ready to be downloaded and installed.
