Motorola Commits to Extend Android 4.4 Love to Razr Devices
When Android 4.4 KitKat was released just under three weeks ago,the hot topic quickly became if and when certain devices would receive a taste of Google’s latest and greatest. Soon after KitKat’s source code was released to AOSP, several OEMs came forward to offer their Android 4.4 upgrade plans.
At the time, Motorola committed to delivering KitKat to the Moto X, as well as its latest Droid devices (Mini, Maxx, Ultra) and the Droid RAZR HD Developer Edition. Unfortunately, no timeline was given. But as we quickly found out on the (Verizon) Moto X, they meant sooner rather than later.
Now, Motorola has committed to updating three more devices. These are the Droid RAZR HD, Droid RAZR Maxx HD, and Droid RAZR M. This is undoubtedly good news for owners of these devices, and we can only hope that the updates arrive in a timely manner.
Make your way over to the Motorola Update Portal to check for yourself. And be sure to head over to the Motorola Droid RAZR / MAXX HD and Droid RAZR M forums to get in on the discussion.

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads. Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
