Motorola says update information for Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD was a typo
Our loyal reader contacted Google's Punit Soni who is VP, Product Management at Motorola Mobility. Soni quickly admitted it was a typo. In fact, Motorola did change its web site which now says that we should "Stay tuned for an upgrade decision."
We are not sure that this calls for celebration yet. After all, no announcement of an upgrade was made. But you might ask yourself why would Motorola go ahead and make the change on its site if it didn't plan on taking the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD to the next level. By the way, the site also added that a upgrade decision is coming for the Motorola DROID RAZR HD.
Motorola corrects typo on its update intentions for the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD and the Motorola DROID RAZR HD
Thanks, Anonymous Tipsters!

They're not all your screenshots. The first one is mine. :p

I guess that "Thanks, Anonymous Tipsters!" part at the end is void now.

Not like it was all that anon to begin with. That's me talking to Punit in the first screenshot, and I never specified that I wanted anonymity. :p

Yes Sniggly we know you inquired about it. No one's trying to take credit for it.

It was with palpable relief that i read that reply by Punit. Can't wait for a certain someone to read this article.

A typo huh? Looks more like a PR move to save themselves from backlash .

Well you've chosen to do the same with apple.

Then neither of you is any better than the other. So how 'bout we can the grade school crap and have some decent discussions going forward?
16. Sniggly (Posts: 7182; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
Any examples, or are you talking out of your ass like usual?

Sniggly, will you please stop taking pot shots at Mxy.
22. Sniggly (Posts: 7182; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
Hahaha, wait. Are you serious? Do you really think I'm going to follow your orders? Mxy is a big boy troll. He can take care of himself.

And you wonder why you missed the massive sales on the 5C despite all those photos of unsold 5C in your shop.
When you make an opinion, that's okay. However, when Mxy make an opinion, out comes the Sniggly opinion police!

"Massive" sales? Every report coming out about the iPhone 5c corroborates that no matter how many were sold, it wasn't nearly as many as Apple expected.
And I've said before and will say again, it's fine for Mxy to have an opinion. However, he often makes factually wrong statements (and seemingly bases his opinions on the facts he gets wrong) so here I am to set the record straight. This, strangely enough, is your stated reason for signing up on this site, despite the fact that your arrogance and knowledge base can only muster up a right to wrong ratio of .500 or so.

Protest all you want, but I'd rather have a Maxx HD stuck on 4.1 than an iPhone on iOS 7.

I knew it. Deliver the goods soon, Motorola.

Motorola has to update their phones if they want to keep selling.

What about the Droid Razr M? It's basically the same software, most updates have come out at about the same time for all 3 devices, yet the Razr HD/ HD Maxx are listed as upgrade decision pending and the Razr M isn't... Should I (as a Razr M owner) also email Mr. Soni?

Luckily I got my RAZR MAXX HD right after it came out, and before the bootloader unlock exploit was fixed. I can pretty much run whatever I want on mine without having to wait for updates from Moto/Google/Verizon/

Anybody have the url from the 2nd screen shot? I'd like to sign up for the email if/when the update comes.... Thanks!

just go to Motorola software upgrade page and it asks you if you want to receive emails
