Yesterday we learned that Motorola would do a charitable thing for those stuck in devices that can’t get the update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The Google owned company promised to issue out a $100 credit, and it looks like that promise is being kept. Of course, this kind of generosity casted lots of doubt as to what kind of catch would be involved into getting that free credit.
Well, we’ve learned that Motorola’s landing page is now live for the device exchange and $100 credit program. Here’s how the details look on that page:
If we don’t upgrade your phone to Jelly Bean, we don’t want you to miss out. Buy a select new Motorola smartphone, trade in your old phone, and we’ll give you $100 back. So you always enjoy the best from us.
These details aren’t so specific, but we think in order for users to capitalize on the $100 credit they’d need a two year old phone. That being said, those out there who have a phone that qualifies; would have to just trade in their old handset while buying a new phone. Once that part is complete, Motorola will send you 100 bucks. Unfortunately, we have no idea if this is mail-in or instant discount. Let’s hope Moto does the right thing and make it an instant one. If this sounds confusing head here for more details.
Do you happen to own a Motorola device that’s not getting the bump to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean? If so, do you plan on getting any one of the phones Motorola announced yesterday?
