Motorola has just updated its device update timeline, and a whole bunch of phones have had their Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) updates confirmed. Let's just cut to the chase, here are the device getting Jelly Bean upgrades (US Only), with timing where applicable:

  • RAZR M (before 2013)
  • RAZR HD / MAXX (before 2013)
  • Atrix HD
  • Photon Q
  • Electrify 2
  • RAZR / MAXX
  • DROID 4
  • Bionic
  • XOOM (Wi-Fi and 3G/4G) (Q4 2012)

And that concludes the list. Here are the devices for which a Jelly Bean update decision is still pending:

  • XOOM Family Edition
  • Xyboard 10.1 / 8.2

If your device isn't any of the above, it's safe to assume Jelly Bean isn't in your future. And for some devices, obviously, not even Ice Cream Sandwich. Head over to the Moto forums to see all the specifics.

Motorola Forums, Thanks Nick!

    I's STILL pissed that my 1 year old ATRIX 4G won't get ICS!!!!

    • Jhonnyx

      For sure at last minute these devices will remain in 2.3 because pissorola decided that way.... 1 year waiting for updates aaaand, it's gone....

      Year and a half (I think it's actually 19 or , but I feel the same way. Fortunately "someone" at Motorola likes us and leaked a ICS build (I think it's ICS), I've been running a CM10 build using the libs (hw acceleration and all) for a few days now. Just glad I'm able to upgrade next month.

        ics has been out or more than a year so that isnt a excuse

      Maybe, 'if your device isn't any of the above, it's safe to assume' that _official_ Jelly Bean isn't in your future.

    The Bionic will get Jellybean by 2020...

    • Andy_in_Indy

      No, they will re-neg on this promise after March 2013

    Thank you Googarola. This Droid 4 owner is very happy.

  • Jeffrey Tarman

    Just happy to know that both my RAZR Maxx and Xoom WiFi+3G will both be getting JB

    What's up with Atrix 2 not getting an update?

  • Bleakvision

    Wow, these idiots make way too many phones. Dudes at Motorola are still clueless on how to minimize cost. But hey, who cares? Google pays the bills now!

  • Kory Rice

    I'm still disappointed that "The Most Powerful Smartphone In The World" is stuck on Gingerbread. The leak was nice, yes, but was still disappointing.

    • mariano zorrilla

      I've buy my Atrix a year an a half before for that "THE MOST BLAH, BLAH..." only 1 (ONE) update 2.3.6 which sux so bad (cuz i lose webtop and other features with stock version) and NO ICS?! WTF?! Never buy shitorola again!

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=667020551 Jose Torres

        ... I haven't gone to that leak because it doesn't have webtop for my ladock. I actually USE it since it is the reason I BOUGHT it afterall...

  • Charles Sanchez

    This isn't anything we didn't already know... we'll be getting it sometime.

  • Gerry Stueve

    http://youtu.be/gI03jMuOZzY this is how moto treats their customers

  • mariano zorrilla

    And what about Atrix 4G! THIS SUCKS SO MUCH! I'll never buy motorola again!

  • http://www.facebook.com/john.yung.9699 John Yung

    US Only to get updates to the Xoom 3G/Wi-Fi, and Australian buyers, English buyers etc. etc. Not a word, as per usual
    Think Motofail should start re thinking selling there crap in these markets.

  • http://www.facebook.com/mark.wilhelmsson Mark Wilhelmsson

    I was already burned on the Atrix 4G and Droid 3 and today I learned that Motorola fooled me once again with the Atrix 2. And the rebate program is a joke! I have three eligible phones yet the offer is only valid in USA.

  • flippingthecoins

    If Bionic is getting the JB update.. why not Atrix 2? Probably due to launch of Atrix HD but thats not fair :(

  • Guille

    Fawk YES!! The RAZR is getting jelly bean! It was only logical. Too bad I'm not in the US so I guess 90% of the razrs out there will be left out but I hope it can be ported or something with ROMs.

  • Asphyx

    It should be noted that the Xoom WiFi (Wingray) has already got it's Jelly Beans and the 3G/4G update is held up going through Verizon.

    Wasn't there an announcement some time ago that those under Google's alliance would be required to provide updates for phones for 18 months? Isn't the Atrix 2 only 1 year old this month? I've never felt so screwed over as I have owning the Atrix2. It'd be one thing if I bought the bottom of the barrel device they offered and demmanded to be treated like a VIP, but I bought the most advanced, most expensive phone they had available for AT&T at the time. And it was brand new! Nine or ten months later and they're pushing back updates and announcing new version of it. One year later and Moto is pushing me to upgrade instead of providing me with updates?

    And that $100.00 voucher is a joke. I bought that phone when it was brand new and it was only a year ago. That means I'm not elligable for an upgrade via AT&T; so if I want to take them up on their offer for an Atrix HD, I still have to drop $350.00 to replace my barely 1 year old phone.

    And this is from a company owned by Google, who makes Android? Shameful.

  • Droiduh

    Droid 4? It still say ics.

  • Alex Seibz

    I don't wait on bloatware-adding manufacturers or carriers to release updates, I wait on Cyanogenmod's monthly releases :)

  • MotoNoMore

    WHAT ABOUT PHOTON AND ATRIX! WTF SHITOROLA

  • http://blog.zevdesigns.com Zev

    It bothers me that the Atrix HD wont get JB before 2013, when it was out just barely before the RAZR HD phones. It's part of the same family and really really frustrating. Good thing they're finally all rooted.

  • josh S

    I would bet that any decent motorola phone will at least get ICS before 2013! Since Google now owns Motorola and they have dropped about 3-4 Billion into the company, I think Motorola will soon surpase Samsung in the smartphone world.
