Update coming for Motorola DROID RAZR HD and Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD; it's not Android 4.2.2.

Update coming for Motorola DROID RAZR HD and Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD; it's not Android 4.2.2.
The other day, we told you all about a soak test coming for the Motorola DROID RAZR HD and the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD. Obviously, the first thought that would pop into the mind of those sportin' one of the two models would be that Android 4.2.2 is on the way. But you'd be dead wrong. While both handsets are being updated, information posted by Verizon shows this is more of a maintenance update designed to kill bugs dead and take care of a few other things.

The update, which weighs in at 50MB, will probably start rolling out OTA to the two handsets next week. The changelist shows that it will improve the reliability of the GPS feature, lessen the number of random reboots and categorize data usage to make for more accurate Data Metering. SMS messages that are read will be correctly displayed as read. Security for the phones will be improved after installing the update and both devices will offer the VMWare Horizon Mobile Switch application. This offers users a way to separate a phone into business and play modes and toggle between both of them when needed. It is an application tailor made for those who bring their own device to the office.

It is not an update to Android 4.2.2, but if it improves your DROID RAZR HD or DROID RAZR MAXX HD, it is a reason to welcome the update with open arms nonetheless.

4.2.2 is a few months old and Motorola's a Google company now, so there's no excuse for the delay. By the time users get 4.2.2 Key Lime Pie will be released.

Google is already on record stating Moto is just another OEM in how they treat them - no favoritism is shown to anyone.

Razr M owners can expect an update in the near future as well. Razr M users are currently soak testing the update

Verizon is crap. The software is bloated crap. And the plans are horrible and international coverage is the worst and the mots expensive. Crap.
