Motorola announces Jelly Bean for Droid RAZR M, talks about upcoming Test Drive program


For those who like to live on the wild side, staying on the bleeding edge of tech, say hello to Motorola’s newly announced Test Drive program. Announced along side the Motorola Droid RAZR M Jelly Bean update, the Test Drive Program is similar to what Moto has been doing all along with their soak tests, only this is a bit more exclusive. Motorola mentioned that it would only allow for a “few hundred” or so users sign up for early access to major updates, starting with Jelly Bean. I’m guessing those pre-JB will have to stick with soak tests in the Motorola Feedback Network. Details on how users can sign up will be provided at a later date, but we’ll stay on the lookout.

As I mentioned above, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean was also announced and is now rolling out for the Motorola Droid RAZR M. Software update 98.12.4 brings all the features you love from the J-Bean, giving you access to Google Now’s “always on” automated services, a smoother UI, as well as a handful of other enhancements and fixes. Here’s the full changelog per Verizon support:

Let us know if any of your guys’ RAZR M’s received the update yet. If not, you can always attempt to pull the update yourself by jumping into your Settings > About phone > System updates > Download. Don’t forget to visit our Droid RAZR M forums to discuss the update or just talk about general Android related topics. Godspeed.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. The Moto M is so corny and small

    1. Honestly, I didn’t think it would do well. Figured everyone would just jump on the RAZR HD but apparently, people still got the M.

      1. Some people don’t like ginormous phones … personally I’m more of a fan of the 4″-4.3″ screens. It’s nice for there to be options.

        1. Yea 4.3″ is perfect, no clue why all these phones are bigger than that now it’s absurd to look at and to hold.

  2. Moto surprised me on how fast the M got jellybean.

    1. Hopefully that’s consistent for all its phones from now on.

  3. Where’s the Jelly Bean update for the S3 which came out prior to the M?

  4. does anyone on Android actually use VZ Navigation? I used it pre-android (for $9.99 a month………….). Now I just disable it in android.

  5. I think if this phone didn’t have all the ugly carrier/moto branding it would easily be the best Android phone on Verizon. Mainly due to Google proving incapable of making an LTE Nexus, and is now years behind crapple.

  6. How about the Droid Razr (last year’s model)?? :)
