Motorola offering $100 credit to handset owners not expecting Android 4.1 update


Do you own a 2011 Motorola phone? Will your Motorola phone receive the Jelly Bean update? If not, Motorola has a $100 credit with your name on it… if you buy any of the new Motorola RAZR phones announced today. It appears as if Motorola is the first company to realize that users should always be using the latest version of Android. Most OEMs have done a great job of pushing out updates to their massive array of Android powered phones, but it’s nearly impossible to get updates out to every device. Rather than become frustrated and badmouth Motorola for not updating all its phones, Motorola is hoping customers will embrace the $100 credit and give the company another chance to prove itself.

It’s hard to say how many customers will take Motorola up on this offer, but we’re sure it’ll be enough for the company to retain a good number of its customers who might have been let down by not receiving the latest Android update.

We know that keeping current on the latest operating system is important to all of our users. We will update most of our devices which were launched since 2011 to Jelly Bean very soon. But there are a small number of devices which can't be upgraded without degrading the phone performance. for those owners, we'll offer a $100 credit with the purchase of any device we unveil today.Dennis WoodsideMotorola
