Verizon rolling out Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to Droid Razr HD and Razr Maxx HD

Verizon announced on Twitter that it is rolling out Android 4.1 Jelly Bean updates in “phases” to the Motorola Droid Razr HD and Droid Razr Maxx HD (check out our review of both devices here). Both phones will get all the goodies that Jelly Bean has to offer, including Google Now, enhanced Voice Search, notifications with interactions, improved gallery and camera reaction time; way better speech-to-text and text prediction for typing on the keyboard.

Many of the features I’ve mentioned are awesome, as I’ve run them on my rooted Samsung Galaxy S III with CyanogenMod 10. The user experience jumps to a whole new level once you’re using Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Honestly, it’s kind of surprising to me that Big Red has delivered the firmware update so quickly. However, if you think about it VZ had to deliver the app, especially with all the commercials of the Razr-line of devices running Android 4.1. So if you’re impatient, you can frantically check for your update by heading to Settings > About Phone > Check Updates. That should do the trick.

Who out there owns any of these Razr HD handsets? Let us know if you received the update or not in comments section.
