Motorola tests upcoming software updates by doing a soak test. Installing the software in only a small number of units (by invitation only), Motorola limits the number of handsets that could potentially get bricked. And if there is a problem with the update, only a small number of phones are affected making the whole process more manageable for the Google subsidiary to handle. To have your phone included in the test, you need to be a member of the Motorola Feedback Network and promise to keep everything about the test confidential.
The models undergoing the latest soak test are the Motorola DROID Ultra
, Motorola DROID MAXX
and the Motorola DROID Mini
. While we won't know for sure until the test is over, Motorola could be "soaking" the trio with Android 4.4. Of course, it also could be something else. Still, our guess is that this will be the update that brings that chocolatey goodness to the latest DROID handsets.
