The Motorola DROID Razr HD and the Maxx HD will soon be entering into the smartphone world, along with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, S3 Mini and HTC One X+ just to name a few new Androids. However the two devices were set back by a bug that is said to affect the reception of the Wi-Fi and cellular. This was likely the reason why both Motorola flagships are only now launching on October 18.
Motorola DROID RAZR HD to launch with ICS despite rivals already on board
But delays aside, there is another more pressing issue about the latest two Motorola DROID phones. They will have Ice Cream Sandwich, not Jelly Bean preloaded which is quite scary considering Motorola’s track record with updates. It will have to be upgraded soon though if it is to compete with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 or HTC One X+, which are coming with Jelly Bean preloaded.
Jelly Bean comes with plenty of new features in comparison to ICS and with the two handsets being delayed, we expected them to be released with Jelly Bean, when they were eventually released.
There is talk about the LG Nexus 4 being announced this month, the HTC One X+ is already available, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 coming before the month is up. So really there are a ton of other new smartphones that have equally good screens, cameras and hardware to pick from that come with Jelly Bean preloaded. After the stunt that Motorola pulled by reneging on the ICS update for a host of their new smartphones (Photon 4G, Electrify, Atrix 2), those expecting Jelly Bean to come out swiftly for the Motorola DROID RAZR HD and MAXX HD may not feel so conident anymore.
