Updated to Android 4.1: Motorola DROID RAZR and MAXX, and the European HTC One S
Owners of the European HTC One S, the Motorola DROID RAZR and the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX must have been on Santa's nice list because on Christmas Eve, all of these models received their update to Android 4.1. That means the addition of Google Now, the feature that gives you the information you want when you need it. For example, you can arrange to receive the daily traffic conditions for your commute as you spoon out the grapefruit on your plate during breakfast each morning. Or, you can receive the weather for the next few days just before you turn in each evening. And Project Butter makes your phone's UI run as smooth as, well, you get the idea.

For owners of the HTC One S, the update includes Sense 4+, an enhanced UI with better camera performance, a new landing page and event/map view in the gallery, and improvements in power management (better battery life). The update is a whopping 612MB. Ouch. We'd hate to be the developer that gave birth to that! The update brings software version 3.16.401.8 to your HTC One S.

Also receiving an update, but to Android 4.1.2, are both the Motrorola DROID RAZR and the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX, These are not the HD models, and so far there is no documentation or a changelist from Big Red.

If you own any of these handsets and have received the update to Android 4.1, let us know by dropping a comment in the box below. And if you have an Android model that hasn't yet received the update to Android 4.1, perhaps a trip to the Santa at the mall will enable you to make a last minute request.
