Motorola ELECTRIFY M for U.S. Cellular gets Jelly Bean update

Motorola ELECTRIFY M for U.S. Cellular gets Jelly Bean update
Good new for owners of the Motorola ELECTRIFY M on the U.S. Cellular network. Your phone is receiving Android 4.1 through an update that has started rolling out. That means you can say good bye to those unsightly underarm stains lags thanks to Project Butter. Google Now brings you traffic reports, sports scores, stock market info, all of the information that you want to know, when you want to know it. With the expandable notifications, you can take action right from the notification itself. Did you miss the call from that corporate headhunter about that opening at Cogswell's Cogs? Instead of heading to the dialer to make the call, simply act right from the notification of the missed call and you'll be on the phone in no time, confirming your new position.

Motorola has been a bit stingy with the updates, although we should say that lately, they have taken care of their newer models. The pattern that is apparent is that any Motorola model with less than 1GB of RAM got frozen no higher than Gingerbread. In the meantime, the Motorola ELECTRIFY M will raise Jelly Bean's distribution rate, which Google reported as being 13.6% in the latest report. And we should warn owners of the phone that these updates don't usually hit everyone at one time. So if it doesn't come today or tomorrow, don't panic. Don't touch your shoelaces or belts. Don't drive to the nearest bridge and jump (at least not with the phone in your pocket). The update will come eventually.

Can someone confirm me if this phone has global roaming? I read that this phone is the brother of the Droid Razr M... thanks.

Now if they could just get their act together with Verizon and update the Droids Razr & Razr Maxx (non-HD versions) their Jellybean distribution rate could jump up a bit more.
