    I doubt I'll see it before my next phone.

    Honestly, I'm surprised it took this long after the official unveiling of Jelly Bean for someone to post a thread about the chances of it coming to RAZR/MAXX.

    Droid Razr will never see jelly bean. It took this long for ICS, it's just not possible. Only the developers will be able to get it on the razr and that's me being optimistic. Made a bad decision when I bought this phone. Between Motorola and Verizon, I don't know which one is worse.

    Not possible? Of course it's possible. In fact, since Motorola now has a fair amount of experience working with ICS for the RAZR/MAXX, and since Jelly Bean isn't a major overhaul, it actually shouldn't take them all that long to get an update ready. So it certainly can be done, and could be done in a much shorter amount of time. The real question is whether or not they'll even bother worrying with it or if they'll devote the focus to upcoming phones.

    And why do you say you made a bad decision in buying this phone? It can't be because of the ICS update. How many other carrier branded phones out there (and being carrier branded is an important difference as opposed to unlocked, international versions of phones that have no carrier interference between the manufacturer and an update being released), that were released with Gingerbread, have received ICS? The answer is not very many. In fact, the answer is barely any at all. I'm not defending the length of time that Motorola has taken with the ICS update, but it's at the very least on par with all of the other major phone manufacturers out there.

    I was wondering about this as well. All my other android phones have received two updates before being abandoned by the manufacturer. However, seeing how old these devices are right now (nine months as of next week) and how long it took them to get ICS I can only assume Motorola and Verizon will move on to newer phones.

    I just hope we get some 4.1 love from the dev crowd.

    I'm pretty confident we'll get Jelly Bean, the Razr is part of the flagship family of Droid phones from Moto/Verizon right now and I don't see any reason that would change in the near future.

    Motorola should update it. Like it was said before 4.1 is not a major update si I don't see why not. What pisses me off is that the nexus is getting it and no word of the RAZR.

    No offense, but that's why you get a Nexus...you don't have to wait for the manufacturers. The Razr is just now getting ICS. Why would they mention jellybean yet?

    Why? Jelly Bean was just officially announced yesterday, and of course it will come to Google's flagship device. The Nexus devices are always the first phones to get new updates. And since it literally just was announced, the various handset manufacturers (including Motorola) probably don't have everything in place yet to get started on a Jelly Bean update. Not to mention the fact that most of them (including Motorola) are still working on getting ICS out to their devices.

    It's way too early to honestly be upset about the lack of an announcement for Jelly Bean on the RAZR. :)

    At least they can throw us a bone and say the RAZR will get jellybean in the future. And I got the RAZR because in my opinion its the best phone out there.

    I never put down the Razr. You said you were upset they hadn't announced JellyBean for the Razr. That's why you get a Nexus because its guaranteed to get the next OS fairly quickly. The Razr is a great device, just not if you expect the next OS quickly.

    I had the nexus for six months. Got the phone the day after release. The ability to change everything on it was amazing. But after a while I got tired of flashing something every other day. Then I only flashed once a month. I finally got tired of reception issues and talked Verizon into swapping the wife's and mine out for the razr. Did it bother me that I was going back to gb not really i just got the holo ics launcher. Frankly I could care less if jellybean makes it to the razr. Some development will come out with a jellybean rom to satisfy that need. Sometimes we need to be satisfied with what we have. Ics on the razr is nice and jellybean doesn't look all that different to me but hen again I'm content with having ics for a while

    You would think that these new OS's were actually giving you some amazing new talent that only a lucky few could have on their phones.

    Disable bloatware. Yay.

    Facial recognition. O....m.....g.

    Ummm.....new icons!

    Ummmm....there's a ton more....I need a minute.

    Just let my phone work consistently. Give me fast and reliable internet and cell service and I will glady get raped monthly by Verizon and their hacky CS reps.

    Wait, what? You do realize that 2.3>4.0 is a MUCH bigger upgrade than 4.0>4.1. The Droid Razr will see 4.1 without a doubt.

    Maybe for other carriers, but Nexus on V has been anything but fairly quickly...look how long it took for 4.0.4. There is no telling how long an official release of 4.1 for any current V phone will take based on their past results. Not bashing on Nexus, just V overall...former Nexus owner here.
