Yesterday at its New York City event, Motorola announced it would be upgrading most of its 2011 smartphones to Jelly Bean by the end of the year. Unfortunately they couldn’t promise all phones would receive this upgrade, but those who’ve purchased a Motorola smartphone that was released in 2011 and can’t get Jelly Bean will have a great deal lined up for them.
Motorola will give you $100 toward the release of select Jelly Bean-capable Motorola smartphone. Be careful to remember that your phone must have been released in 2011, and that you’ll only be qualified for the credit if your phone has been confirmed to be left out off the Jelly Bean train.
It’s a great initiative by Motorola who seems to be getting “it” about the importance of smartphone updates. We’re not sure if that new culture was spurred by their new-found ownership via Google, but either way we aren’t complaining. Motorola’s currently accepting information to sign up for updates at their website.
