It was last month during the Motorola’s Droid Razr HD/M announcement that the “new” Moto mentioned they would be giving their customers stuck with devices that would never see Jelly Bean, a $100 credit for their doomed existence. What Motorola failed to dive into were the details on exactly which of their older devices would be perpetually stuck with Android 2.3 and/or 4.0. Well, that and exactly how they planned on dishing out this $100 credit.
Today, it looks like they’ve provided a list of their now ancient devices eligible to be traded in for that $100 credit — you know, the ones that will never see Android 4.1 Jelly Bean — and a list of devices that must be upgraded to, covering a range of Moto devices on Sprint, AT&T and of course, Verizon. Unfortunately, this offer is only good in the US, although Motorola plans to make it available in other regions down the road. See the list of devices below.
|You must currently own one of these||You must purchase one of these|
|DROID 3 BY MOTOROLA||MOTOROLA ATRIX™ HD|
|DROID X2 BY MOTOROLA||DROID RAZR M BY MOTOROLA|
|MOTOROLA ATRIX™ 4G||DROID RAZR HD BY MOTOROLA|
|MOTOROLA ATRIX™ 2||DROID RAZR MAXX HD BY MOTOROLA|
|MOTOROLA ADMIRAL™||Motorola Electrify™ 2|
|CLIQ 2™ BY MOTOROLA||MOTOROLA PHOTON™ Q|
|MOTOROLA MILESTONE™ 3|
|MOTOROLA MILESTONE™ X2|
|MOTOROLA PHOTON™ 4G|
Now, to go along with all that, Motorola also updated their schedule on current devices in line to receive the J-Bean, with their entire Razr family making the cut, along with yes, even the Droid 4 and Bionic slipping in there (though no reference on even a general time frame). It’s all pretty black and white (and red). Take a look.
