    I am sure many of you guys have seen this already, but it looks like the "soak test" for the Motorola Droid RAZR and RAZR MAXX was the quickest ever. It didn't even last a whole day! Motorola is already pushing out the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update to these devices! That's not all of the good news either. Apparently, this new Jelly Bean for the two superphones does something else that will likely be greatly appreciated.

    As DroidModderX reported last night, here.... besides the obvious goodness of Project Butter and Google Now, this new version of Jelly Bean for the RAZR & RAZR MAXX also removes most of the "Motoblur" bloatware!

    The default web browser is now Chrome. They removed the Social Location app, MotoActv and Alarm and Timer. They also removed My Gallery, MotoPrint, My Music and the Verizon Video on Demand apps. Finally, the Gallery, Music and Alarm and Timer apps were replaced with stock Android versions.

    If that isn't a cause for a happy dance, then you are probably too grumpy! dancedroid dancedroid dancedroid

    Here's a quote with the full press statement from Google,

    Maybe you guys should stop saying "Blur is almost all gone" and "Motocast" is removed. Also, Google doesn't push updates to these phones. Motorola and Verizon do.

    I was at least able to disable Motocast.
