Motorola shocked the world yesterday when they announced they’d be the first OEM to bring Android 4.4 KitKat to the masses. That happened on the Motorola Moto X, and on Verizon’s version, no less. We’re still waiting on word about Motorola’s latest DROID phones, but it seems the company is looking to take things up a notch — they are now promising Android 4.4 for Verizon’s 2012 DROID phones.

Specifically, the Motorola DROID M, Motorola DROID RAZR HD, and Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD are all being lined up to receive the upgrade to KitKat at some point in the future. Motorola wasn’t interested in giving us a timeframe for those devices, but we imagine it won’t be much longer than a few months before we can get our hands on the chocolatey goodness.

That said, it’s wise not to expect the update quite as fast as it arrived on the Moto X, and it will probably be lower on their list of priorities compared to the Motorola DROID Maxx, Motorola DROID Ultra, and Motorola DROID Mini. Still, the fact that 2012 phones are being pegged for the latest version of Android is something to applaud.
