Motorola confirms Razr i Jelly Bean upgrade

Motorola has confirmed that its Intel-packing Razr i handset (pictured, top) is now getting upgraded to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

The Google-owned firm didn't provide any additional details regarding the update process, saying only that the newer OS would be "rolled out to users in phases."

"We're excited to announce that Motorola Razr i with Intel Inside is getting upgraded to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Starting today, the upgrade will be rolled out to users in phases," Motorola commented in a statement.

Announced in June 2012 at Google's annual I/O conference, Jelly Bean introduces a number of useful new features to the Android party, including Google Now and Voice Search.

News of the Motorola Razr i Jelly Bean update follows Google's recent announcement that adoption of Android 4.1 stands at 13.6 per cent of eligible devices.

Samsung is among the other manufacturers in the process of bringing Jelly Bean to its older devices: the Galaxy Ace 2 is confirmed for the upgrade in April, while the Galaxy S2 will get a trip to the sweet shop a month earlier in March.
