Over a Dozen Motorola Devices Will Never Taste Jelly Bean, Owners Get $100 Upgrade Credit Instead

Remember the Droid X2 from Motorola? Released last year, it was the first dual-core 1GHz smartphone available on Verizon Wireless' network, and it boasted some pretty impressive specs for its generation. Unfortunately for Droid X2 owners, it's one of more than a dozen smartphones Motorola revealed will NOT be receiving an update to Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean).

The total number comes to a baker's dozen and includes some devices that aren't terribly old. Here's the full list:
  • Droid 3 by Motorla
  • Droid X2 by Motorola
  • Motorola Atrix 4G
  • Motorola Atrix 2
  • Motorola Admiral
  • Cliq 2 by Motorola
  • Motorola Milestone 3
  • Motorola Milestone X2
  • Motorola Electrify
  • Motorola Photon 4G
  • Motorola XPRT
  • Motorola Titanium
  • Motorola Triumph

Motorola Droid X2

On the bright side, owners of the above devices are eligible to receive a sort of consolation prize in the form of a $100 rebate when trading up to a select new Motorola smartphone. Devices eligible for the rebate include:

  • Motorola Atrix HX
  • Droid RAZR M by Motorola
  • Droid RAZR HD by Motorola
  • Droid RAZR Maxx HD by Motorola
  • Motorola Electrify 2
  • Motorola Photon Q

Motorola has a special website setup where device owners can check their trade up eligibility. If you qualify, you'll have to mail Motorola a valid proof-of-purchase (copy of receipt and UPC code) from the new device, as well as send the company your used phone. The rebate will come in the form of a $100 Visa prepaid card.
