Droid RAZR HD & RAZR M KitKat 4.4 update expected within a few weeks

RAZR 2012 handsets getting  Android 4.4 KitKat soon

Motorola’s David Schuster has confirmed on Google+ that the 4.4 KitKat update for the Droid RAZR HD and RAZR M should arrive within the next few weeks. Hopefully this means that the update for the UK equivalents — the RAZR HD and the RAZR i, which we ranged here at Clove — won’t be too far behind.

Although Schuster’s update on Google+ only refers to the US handsets, Motorola has already confirmed that the RAZR HD and the RAZR i (the UK variants) will receive the update at some point. This is also stated on the Motorola Support website, which you can visit here. This is the message that is currently displayed for the RAZR i:

razr i kitkat update

We’ll keep an eye out for any further developments with the UK updates and post a follow up here on the Clove Blog once more info is available.

Motorola RAZR i Car Navigation Dock available to order

imageThe Motorola RAZR i has been a bit of a sleeper hit; the first major mobile device to run on an Intel Medfield mobile processor and providing a high quality Android experience in a smaller, more comfortable form factor and at an affordable price point. The device has been exclusive to UK retailers and is a modification of the RAZR m model available globally – as such, specific accessories for the device have been somewhat hard to come by.

We are now pleased to announce that the official Car Navigation Dock from Motorola is now available to order from Clove at £34.99 inclusive of VAT. First stock is arriving soon so if you are interested then place your orders quickly as this is sure to be a popular accessory for a device that has gained only great feedback from many of our customers

£125 vouchers with Motorola RAZR HD & RAZR i

Motorola RAZR i WHITE expected 1st February

imageOur second update from Motorola is another addition to the RAZR family. This time the current RAZR i has been confirmed as available in WHITE for the first time and will also be with us on the 1st February. The RAZR i was the first handset to use Intel’s Medfield processor and has seen good sales based most likely on its mix of power and price tag – at £265 + VAT it’s fantastic value for money with Android 4.0, a 4.3 inch qHD resolution AMOLED screen with Gorilla Glass and 8 megapixel camera. If you’ve been considering a powerful and highly capable smartphone that doesn’t cost as much as the flagships then the RAZR i is a great option, order yours HERE

RAZR, RAZR i and RAZR MAXX to get Jelly Bean next year

Jelly Bean confirmed for RAZR handsets

Motorola has confirmed that handsets from its RAZR line-up will be receiving an update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean in 2013.

At the moment the RAZR i is the only handset that has a timeframe specified for the update, which is currently scheduled for ‘Q1 2013’, but the Jelly Bean update has also been confirmed for the RAZR and RAZR MAXX, but without estimated arrival dates. 

There is also a caveat on the Motorola update page to say that dates are subject to change. However hopefully it will not be too much longer until we see the update for Motorola’s flagship and its siblings.
