Motorola sends out soak test invites for RAZR HD and Maxx HD: 4.2?

Motorola sends out soak test invites for RAZR HD and Maxx HD: 4.2?
A new e-mail has started hitting users from Motorola, and inviting users to join an unspecified soak test for the DROID RAZR HD and DROID RAZR Maxx HD. The e-mail doesn't mention what the soak test is for, but we'd say the smart money is on this being the testing for the Android 4.2 update for both devices. As of right now, both devices are running Android 4.1.2, and there have been rumors that Android 4.2 is on the way for the devices, so it would make sense.

The e-mail that is going out reads:

No doubt that once whatever is being tested rolls out to testers, we'll see more leaks about what it is and what to expect, but for right now all we really know is that something is happening with the two Motorola Verizon devices.

sadly it's not 4.2. i received the email myself and it said it's just a small maintenance update. i'm sure Moto has builds of 4.2 that are near completion though. we'll probably learn more from the reps at the Moto X press conference.

I have to ask, has any US flagship phone which didn't ship with it gotten 4.2 yet?

considering how intent Motorola was at updating nearly every handset that can handle it to 4.1 i think it would be pretty safe to assume the 4.2 update is coming sooner rather than later. last i heard it was in testing for the Atrix HD and the Razr HD models.
